AVPN Global Conference 2023 | 20 - 22 June 2023





Building the ecosystem

AVPN is building the ecosystem for social investors with an active presence in the Philippines - from foundations and impact funds to corporations, intermediaries and beyond.
With GDP growth rates hovering around 6.9%-7%, the Philippines is one of the top performers in Asia. While the pandemic has slowed growth, the country is positioned for a solid recovery. Strong civil society sector and the presence of many international social investors are catalysts for the country to achieve recovery and sustainable development.
