PN 2001-16: Deregulation of Bank Entry and Branching: Impact on Competition

Does deregulation of entry and branching restrictions in the country's commercial banking sector foster a more competitive atmosphere? What are the effects of the regulatory restrictions on bank entry and branching on the structure, conduct and performance of the Philippines' commercial banking sector? This Notes reviews the impact of such restrictions and argues for a continuing easing of the rules on entry and branching.
