Manila, Feb 26, 2009 - (ACN Newswire) - Senator Edgardo J. Angara, the longest serving Philippines senator in the post-EDSA Senate, has been named distinguished Guest Of Honour at the Philippine Capital Markets Conference 2009.

The Pinnacle Group International, which has been working with governments in Asia in creating industry standard events, is holding its inaugural Philippines Capital Markets Conference, at the Pan Pacific Hotel Manila from the 10-11 March 2009.

2009 promises to be an exciting year as the Philippines has recently revised regulations on the capital markets and is set for further developing the pension and capital markets.

"The year 2008 was tumultuous for the world due to the global economic recession that, thankfully, has not become a crisis in the Philippines," said Philippine President Gloria Arroyo in a written New Year's message to the nation.

The Philippines has actually fared relatively well as compared with other emerging markets in Asia. In recent news, officials have reported theoversubscribing of Manila's sovereign bond issue by four times.

Having raised US$1.5 billion from the sale of 10-year global bonds to foreign investors, the first in Asia since last June, the Philippines' stable monetary and exchange rate environment has proved conducive to investor sentiment towards the country's return to international capital markets.

According to Fitch Sovereign Group, the Philippines is going to outperform some other sovereigns rated in the 'BB' category. Both Moody'sInvestors Service and Standard & Poor also give Manila's global bond an upbeat assessment.

As credit markets begins to show signs of thawing, Philippines provides a glimmer of hope to investors.
