While the Philippines peso plunges on a seven-year low, as reported from the stock market this week, US dollar shoots with $1 = Php48.25 which made financial market bled again. Initial reports blame the noise in politics as the reason to why the peso hits this downfall anew. But that’s a different story.
Still, many from the business sector are optimistic that after the noise dies down, everything will be back to normal.
The said financial crisis did not affect foreign players to invest and open up offices here in the country, just as like what Payoneer just did a couple of days ago.
Payoneer, a leading online payments company transforming the way businesses send and receive cross-border payments, officially opened its first office in Taguig City, a booming CBD part of Metro Manila, to expand its Asia Pacific region operations.
The New York-based global financial services firm that provides payment solutions to giant entities such as Google, Amazon, Upwork, and Airbnb, as well as millions of small businesses throughout the world, is strengthening its presence in a country that is already familiar with its services. Its local presence in Manila will enable Payoneer to offer even better service to freelancers and creative outsourcing professionals, as well as the growing numbers of SMEs in the IT and BPO industry in the Philippines.
This announcement might be a good timing for freelancers especially that a bill is filed in the Senate to protect freelance workers’ rights.
