Unlike Philippine exports which are dominated by just one commodity, electronic products, the country’s imports are dominated by two products: electronics, and mineral fuels & related materials, constituting 51 percent of total imports.

If we subtract imports from exports of electronic products, the estimated local value added in 2010 was around $12.5 billion. A good number somehow.
