http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asian_Development_Bank Reputation • The Philippines is the only Christian country in Asia
• Ferdinand Magellan was killed in the Philippines Facts • The Philippines is made up of 7107 islands
• The Philippines' largest island Luzon is the 17th largest in the world
• The Philippines flag is displayed upside-down during war Where is the Philippines in the world? The capital of The Philippines is Manila.

Some major cities are Bacoor and Calamba.

The main languages are Filipino (also know as Tagalog) and English.

With a population of over 92 million, The Philippines is the 12th most populated country in the world.

Its unit of currency is the Philippine peso ( or PHP). 42.64351 pesos = 1 Canadian Dollar General Information Differences in Topography • Canada's topography is essentially Precambrian rocks from the Canadian Shield
•The Maritimes are separated from the rest of Canada by low mountain ranges, plains and rivers
• Also with the huge lakes and surrounding oceans + Rocky Mountains in the West
• Canada has an all-around rocky terrain Differences in Topography - cont • The topography of the Philippines is not very smooth to say the least
• Is covered by many volcanoes; active, dormant, and extinct
•Because of these volcanoes many earthquakes happen often
• The Philippines is made up of several thousand islands, so its' topography is viewed collectively as a whole rather than for each island
• All of these islands provide an abundance of resources Imports • Philippines doesn't receive many imports from Canada
•It does however have 12 percent of its' imports from the U S
• Those being commodities, such as electronics, mineral fuels, machinery and transport equipment, metals like iron and steel, fabrics, grains, chemicals, plastic Exports Primary exports - commodities :
semiconductors and electronic products, transport equipment, garments, copper products, petroleum products, coconut oil, fruits

They mainly export items that cannot be found outside their area, as it is a relatively warm country. Deficit or Surplus? The Philippines has a trade deficit of -2.1% of its' GDP.

This may because they have to receive more than they can give. Major trading partners Sadly Canada is not a major trading partner of the Philippines.

The top 10 trading partners of the Philippines are:
United States of America
Hong Kong
South Korea
Saudi Arabia
Netherlands Climate The average temperature in the Philippines is 86 degrees Fahrenheit (30 degrees Celsius) which means it is a very hot country.

The average precipitation is 7.6mm.

These two combined factors make the Philippines a lush and tropical country, allowing for lots of growing. Energy Sources • As The Philippines is a mass of islands, Hydro Energy is a major source of energy in the Philippines.
• The Philippines doesn't happen to have much oil to use, so the people of the country are forced to seek alternatives
• Solar Power is also a great renewable source of energy that is often used International Linkages The Philippines is involved over 60 international organizations, some being: WTO, UNWTO, UNESCO, WIPO, and G- 24.

A lot of these organizations are made to help the economy and people less fortunate by raising more money and doing more to reach out.

For example, the ADB (Asian Development Bank) was established in 1966 to further and faster develop countries in Asia.
Comparison to Canada Canada and the Philippines are completely different from each other in many ways. Canada is more than three times the size of the Philippines, and is one land mass (for the most part.) They are on completely opposite sides of the world. Also, while in summer the climate may be somewhat similar, winter temperatures are almost exactly the opposite from each other. In Canada, our main languages are English and French, while the Philippines' main language is "Filipino."

Though both countries use "province" divisions instead of states, Canada has 13 provinces, and the Philippines has 80 provinces. The Philippines has a president, while we have a Prime Minister. Our main exports are things like lumber, car parts, and petroleum products while the Philippines' main exports are fruits, coconut oil, and electronics.
