two years. In 2013, the Philippines advanced 12 spots to No. 82 from No. 94 in 2011.
The ASEAN Rank column shows the position of the Philippines relative to other ASEAN economies
for the most recent year available. For example, the Philippines is ranked 5th out of 5 ASEAN economies
reviewed in the 2014 IMD World Competitiveness Report.
The IFC of Doing Business Report is named one year in advance of the release. For example, the
Doing Business Report 2016 was released in October 2015.

178th nation considered as very sustainable. In 2016, the Philippines slipped six spots from 48th
to 54th out of 178 countries.
