Renowned Economist Dr. Nouriel Roubini to Provide Keynote Address at the Philippine Investment Summit 2013

Manila, Jan 23, 2013 - (ACN Newswire) - Dr. Nouriel Roubin, co-founder and chairman of Roubini Global Economics and a professor of economics at New York University's Stern School of Business, will be giving the keynote speech on 30 January 2013 at the Shangri-La, Manila to an audience of bankers, fund managers, institutional investors and business leaders.

Dr. Roubini, a former senior economist for international affairs on the White House Council of Economic Advisors and senior advisor to the undersecretary for international affairs at the U.S. Treasury Department, is well sought after for his global economic insights and prescient calls on market trends for which subsequent events have mostly proven him right.

He also promoted the standing of the Indonesian economy. Indonesia was upgraded to investment grade early this year. It is anticipated that Dr. Roubini's pronouncements at the Summit could well be the catalysts for the much anticipated ratings upgrade of the Philippines in 2013.

Such a possibility will bode well for the Philippines in terms of funds inflow and foreign direct investments, thus, providing further boost to the Philippine capital markets and other sectors including property, manufacturing, mining, energy and infrastructure.

Consequently this approach requires risky, deep "surgery" including changes to firewalls, subnets...
