The markets in the Philippines, Indonesia and Malaysia are booming, and yet they are struggling to sustain their economies, with GDP growth slowing from 6.9% in 2016 to 3.9%.
Many economists say the Philippines and Indonesia need to invest in infrastructure and jobs to boost their economies.
But with the economic slowdown, economists say, the markets will have to invest more in other sectors.
So what should the markets do about the growing pains of a sluggish economy?
“The markets are not a perfect environment to grow,” said Richard Wiebe, chief economist at Macroeconomics Australia.
“We should not overreact to the slow-down and not do what we can to sustain growth.”
It’s not like you can say ‘OK, we need to double-down on this’, because we’ve been doing that for many years.
“Economists are divided on the role of the market.
Some argue that the markets are the best way to grow a country’s economy.
Others argue that growth can only happen when markets are doing well, and the market has failed in this regard.
But some economists believe the markets have not been able to provide the support that the government needs.”
The market has not been a very reliable asset in a market where we are all trying to do the same thing,” said Mr Wiebbe.”
They have not really provided the kind of resilience we need.
“So I think there’s been a little bit of concern that the market might not have been as reliable as it should be.”
The market for landThe markets in Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines and Thailand are all large land-based industries.
But they are all struggling to create jobs.
As a result, their economies are not as robust as those of neighbouring countries.
In the Philippines it is estimated that land-related jobs account for around 30% of GDP.
In Malaysia, this number is more than double.
In Indonesia, it is nearly 50%.
In Thailand it is close to 30%.
And in the Philippine market, the figure is even higher.
A new study, by the Singapore-based International Monetary Fund, suggests that this is not just about the availability of land, but also about the labour market.
It found that, in 2017, only 15% of Malaysia’s land-intensive industries had a workforce of more than 25 people.
And it found that the labour force participation rate for land-focused industries is also low.
According to the report, the labour participation rate is just 40% for the agriculture and forestry sector, compared to 71% for manufacturing, 53% for services and 53% in the services-based sectors.
It’s no surprise then that there are less jobs available in those sectors.
The study also found that labour-intensive sectors, such as farming, mining and construction, have a large share of landless workers.
It is also worth noting that the Philippines has the world’s second-highest percentage of land-less workers, with more than 2.4 million.
So what can the markets and governments do to create more jobs in these sectors?
One way to boost the economy is to attract foreign investment.
The Philippines has been working on a plan for attracting foreign capital into its economy.
It has introduced a tax on foreign ownership in land- and infrastructure-related companies and has made it easier for foreign investors to obtain government concessions on land.
Another option is to increase investment in infrastructure.
This could include investment in new schools, hospitals and schools for the disabled, to name a few.
The government also has been doing a lot to attract investment.
It is currently considering a scheme to help businesses and individuals buy land and land-affected buildings.
This will create more than 1.3 million jobs.
However, the government is also looking to other sectors, including tourism, agriculture and fishing.
“Our government is very ambitious in looking at the sectors that we want to invest,” Mr Wiesbe said.
“I think it’s very important to attract investments in those areas, and that’s what we’re looking to do.”
