The Government of the Philippines is looking to fund around 80 critical infrastructure projects through the country’s first sovereign fund, the Maharlika Investment Fund (MIF). Although the projects identified have not been named, the focus will be on supporting urban-oriented and financially viable projects like airways, toll ways, and airports. Funding could also be provided for the rehabilitation of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport.

These are part of a larger set of 197 projects valued at USD 155 billion, crucial for advancing the country’s infrastructure agenda. These projects will enhance physical and digital connectivity, water resources, agriculture, healthcare, transportation, and energy systems in the Philippines.
