Until recently, the rapid growth of both international and domestic inter-island container trades in the Philippines had not been matched by a corresponding development in the country's port infrastructure. The inevitable result, particularly in the country's leading port, Manila, was acute congestion on the unsuitable piers. Today, however, the Philippine Ports authority, in its fifth year of existence, has all but solved the congestion problems in Manila and with the aid of massive foreign loans is developing new container facilities and uprating existing ports to cope with future anticipated container growth.
