Like many emerging economies The Philippines has to overcome some hurdles before it can see the massive growths seen previously by large countries.

The Philippines has got such potential once these hurdles have been overcome. It was ranked 16th in total internet users in 2014 with almost 40 million online users.

The barriers to growth include; slow internet growth, lack of cooperation from the government and large corporations and large financial divides.
