Filipinos, particularly Cebuanos, have great productivity and offer quality work output. Australian businesses can count on the creativity and conscientiousness of Cebuanos.

Australia’s confidence in Cebu’s thriving economy is shown by the investment of ship designer and manufacturer Austal, which acquired the shipyard in the West Cebu Industrial Park in Balamban, the former FBMA Marine Shipyard where Austal is currently making significant investments to enhance the shipyard’s capabilities.

The acquisition was part of Austal’s strategy to regionalize its manufacturing base for commercial vessels.

This is only one example of the mutually beneficial economic partnership and knowledge transfer that will happen between the operations in Australia and the Philippines, to improve the trade of both countries as they reap the benefits of free trade agreements (FTA).

There are opportunities for other industries in and from Cebu that Australian enterprises can be excited about. The Australian Trade Commission met with the top officials of the Cebu Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCCI) and the local government units here to explore trade possibilities.

The trade officials identified opportunities in tourism, and business process outsourcing as some of the key areas for Cebu that have potential in penetrating the Australian market.

Australia will require employees from abroad to work for various industries, including health care, where Filipinos are known to be hard-working and competitive because of educational background, service capability, culture and flexibility.
