As emphasized by Mr. Dexter Deyto, General Manager of UBM Exhibitions Philippines, during his Welcome Remarks, "In the latest annual economic assessment of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the Philippines economy continues to be one of the most dynamic economies in Asia - with growth projected at 6.7% in 2019. However, an increase in economic activities gives rise to higher water and energy demand, thus creating more challenges in the Philippines' water and energy security. One of the main goals of Water Philippines 2019 and RE EE Philippines 2019 is to encourage both the government and private sectors to strive more in exploring various new methods and find the best solutions in addressing our water and energy challenges."
