BMI View: Rising tensions with China have seen the Philippines significantly increase their defence spending with the aim of revamping their military assets. Relations with China have further deteriorated following territorial disputes in early 2014. In addition, the Southeast Asian country is facing new internal threats such as communist insurgency, Muslim separatists in the south, and terrorist organisations with links to Al-Qaeda and the new Islamic State (IS). These developments have led to an increase in budget allocation towards defence spending by the government, which has seen roughly a 30% rise on the previous year. Potential risks stem from the scaling back of US support for the Philippines counter-terrorism programme.

Relations with China further deteriorated following the Philippines sentencing of 12 Chinese fisherman arrested for illegal fishing in non-disputed waters. Another trial of Chinese fishermen for supposed activity near the disputed Spratly Islands risks aggravating further tensions between the two countries. BMI thinks that these incidents demonstrate the Philippines readiness to respond to what it perceives as Chinese aggression.
