Manufacturing is the country’s top earner with total revenues of P3.55 trillion. It is also the top earner in Central Visayas at P401 billion. This is according to the National Statistics Office (NSO) 2010 Annual Survey on Philippine Business and Industry (ASPBI) and Survey on Information and Communications Technology (SICT). Provincial Statistics Officer Jessamyn Anne Alcazaren said the 2010 survey covered 18 economics sectors. Mining and quarrying sector employs the highest average number of workers in the country. University of San Carlos professor Fernando Fajardo was amused to learn that mining and quarrying sector recorded the highest employment when several Filipinos are against mining because it can destroy the environment. Employees in the electricity, gas, steam and air-conditioning supply, and ICT are the highest paid, Alcazaren said. Fajardo, however, said these sectors are relatively small. The 2010 ASPBI is the 41st in a series of annual surveys of establishments aimed at providing and generating information on levels of economics activities and performance of businesses in the country. The 2010 SICT, on the other hand, is the fourth in series if rider-surveys to the 2010 ASPBI.

Their family-owned Prince Warehouse chains are not included in the ASPBI because...
