Eastern Visayas’ economy contracts by 2.3 percent in 2014

GAD Seminar

The economy of Eastern Visayas suffered a reversal as it recorded a 2.3 percent contraction in 2014, from a 4.5 percent growth in 2013.  This can be attributed to the lingering effects of Super Typhoon Yolanda which hit the region in November 2013 and was heavily felt in Industry and Agriculture, Hunting, Forestry and Fishing (AHFF) sectors.  

 The Industry sector accounted for the biggest share of the region’s economy at 41.4 percent, followed closely by Service sector at 40.7 percent.  AHFF had the smallest share at 18.0 percent. (Full Text)
