Eduardo N. Roa, managing director of ACNielsen Philippines, adds that initiatives from the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the Asia Pacific Economic Council (APEC) also indicate the opening up of the RP market.

"Filipino consumers will readily accept global consumer products," Roa declares as he refers to the volume measures taken from ACNielsen's Retail Audit (i.e., biscuits, chocolates, and canned fruit) which indicate the Filipino's predisposition toward imported products. Roa went on to explain that such high level of awareness can also be traced back to the Philippine's historical roots as well as the heavy dosage of advertising that accompany global brands.
