CLIMATE

Pasay City being part of Metro Manila as with the rest of the Philippines, lies entirely within the tropics. Its proximity to the Equator means that the temperature range is very small, rarely ever going lower than 25°C and going higher than 33°C. However, humidity levels are usually very high. It has a distinct dry season from November to May, and a wet season from June to October, when it is constantly battered by typhoons from the Pacific Ocean.

CURRENCY

Philippine Peso (Php) in denominations of 1000, 500, 200, 100, 50, 20, 10, 5, 1 in pesos and. 25, 10, 5 and 1 in centavos.

ECONOMY

Food manufacturing tops the industrial sector (20%), followed by construction activities (20%) export-oriented activities (18%) manufacture of metal products (17%) manufacture of paper and wood products (11%) each, rubber and plastic products (5%) and chemicals (4%). Since industrial firms generate revenue for the local government and employment for people, establishments of industries may be allowed if they would not contribute to the existing ecological problem of the city, e.g. atmospheric pollution.
