Moody's raises PH ratings anew
By Kim Arveen Patria

Affirming the Philippine economy's strong performance and stable financial system, debt watcher Moody's Investors Service has raised the country's local and foreign currency long-term bond ratings to Ba1 from Ba2.

This is seen to result in lower costs for the Philippines when it taps debt markets to bridge gaps between budget and spending.

Moody's follows two other major credit rating agencies that have earlier put the Philippines just one level shy of investment grade.

"It's been a decade since all three major ratings agencies rated the Philippines a notch below investment grade," Finance Secretary Cesar Purisima said via his Twitter account.

"This is the 9th positive ratings action since President Aquino took office and has brought us on the cusp of investment grade rating," he added.

Key drivers for the upgrade include the country's improved economic performance despite weak global demand; enhanced prospects for growth over the medium-term; and stable financial system.

The financial district of Makati City, in Metro Manila, Philippines, is about to welcome a new luxury hotel, the Raffles Makati, with a pre-opening event scheduled for December 1, with the main opening set for February 2013.

The luxury hotel group's new address houses 32 suites in a 30-storey building.

All the suites sport floor-to-ceiling windows and luxurious decorative touches, such as handwoven carpets. Colorful fabrics and Filipino handicraft items add a local touch to the decor.

The brand new building will also house other properties: Raffles Residences with 237 apartments (from studio to six-room condos) and the Fairmont Makati, a 280-room luxury hotel.

Two bars (the Long Bar and the Writer's bar), several restaurants, a bakery, two large outdoor swimming pools, a spa, a gym and a business center round out the facilities.

Ayala Land to put up 'CCP in Makati'

An artist's perspective of Ayala Land's latest project, the Circuit, which will rise in the former Sta. Ana race track

MANILA, Philippines -- Here's good news for fans of plays and musicals: a new performing arts venue will soon rise in Makati.

Called the Circuit Theater, the indoor venue at the heart of Makati's retail and business district will be designed so "it's good enough for Broadway," Meann Dy, strategic landbank management group head of the local property giant Ayala Land Inc., told reporters on Wednesday.

It will have a seating capacity of 1,500, with a stage that measures 96 square meters and an orchestra pit that can accommodate at least 60 musicians.

"Wouldn't it be nice to have a CCP in Makati? To catch a world-class musical after work without needing to undertime and rush out of the business district just to catch a 7 p.m. performance?" Dy said, noting how the Cultural Center of the Philippines in Pasay City is "too far" for office workers.
