Sources of RP imports, 2010

The Philippines no longer relies on one or two countries as its main source/s of important imports. Its top two sources, Japan and the US, provided only 23 percent of total imports. Of course there are technicalities involved like real “port of origin” as a number of exports of countries are just repackaged and assembled products, the source of raw materials, semi-processed and intermediate products are also imported from other countries.


Here are the top import sources for the Philippines in the last two years, units in $ billion.
