MANILA, Philippines – Foreign investors have adopted a wait-and-see attitude, putting on hold or temporarily withdrawing their investments in the Philippines due to jitters over today’s elections, according to Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) Deputy Governor Diwa Guinigundo.

“We continue to see inflows from the external markets. Perhaps if there will be – we don’t have the numbers yet – it is because of election jitters,” Guinigundo said.

He pointed out that foreign investors could have adopted a wait-and-see attitude because of the uncertainties brought about by the May 10 elections.
