AyalaLand developments in the Philippines. This was coupled with the discussion from US attendees who agreed with the importance of continuing to develop the natural connections Filipino residents in the US have to the Philippines. It was generally agreed that the growth of business and investment opportunities (such as AyalaLands) would benefit both the Philippine residents in a growing economy, as well as residents of the currently recessionary US economy. AyalaLands strength in the residential market is based on a diversified offering of investments located throughout the Philippines, positioned at virtually every residential price point. This is a compelling reason for anyone at any income level in the US, to consider placing a portion of remittance moneys into AyalaLand residential property purchases. Such a move could be both an immediate housing benefit for relatives living in the Philippines, as well as a solid long term capital accumulation play for future retirement by US investors. The commitment to a diversified business model is a tribute to AyalaLands continuing intention to be a significant player in the creation of a rich, positive vision for the future of the Philippines. Such a vision includes world class developments in other sectors beyond housing, including the hospitality, office, and retail sectors, creating a complete lifestyle approach. The continued record breaking growth chronicled in their most recent annual report Ben Menor, Andy Paras, Daisy Paras, Antonino Aquino, Robert Henry, demonstrates the high Maria Henry, Colette Manauis, Mita del Fierro standards and expectations governing AyalaLands direction into the future.
