The Philippines' economic prospects
Figures released on Thursday showed the Philippines economic growth rate slowed in the three months to the end of June.
Growth was 5.9% in the three months to the end of June compared with a year ago, down from a revised 6.1% growth rate notched up in the first quarter.
The first quarter growth rate figure landed the Philippines on the radar of foreign investors since its performance was the second highest in the region, next to China's.
One of the sectors drawing interest is mining since the Philippines is rich in natural resources.
The BBC's Rizo Hizon spoke to Caroline Tanchay, chief executive and president at the Filipino mining company Oriental Peninsula Resources Group and asked about her outlook for the industry.
