PhilippinesAustralia EDUCATION Although primary education is free and compulsory, many children are not able to go to school because their parents cannot afford to buy school supplies and sometimes children have to work on the family farm or business. Classrooms are often crowded and hot and have few teaching resources. Many children are malnourished and find it difficult to study effectively. Despite these obstacles, 96% of the population aged 15 and over can read and write, considering the importance of education. School attendance is compulsory throughout Australia. All children receive 11 years of compulsory education from the age of 6 to 16 (Year 1 to 10), before they can undertake two more years (Years 11 and 12), contributing to an adult literacy rate that is assumed to be 99%.

PhilippinesAustralia ECONOMY There is great unevenness in the distribution of wealth in the Philippines. A small percentage of the population is very wealthy while the majority of the people are very poor. The Philippines has a GDP of $351.4 billion and a PPP of $3,500 living below the poverty line. In rural areas, most farmers do not own the land that they work and are required to give a percentage of their crop to the landowner as rent. Nearly 10% of GDP is from Filipinos working overseas. Australia is wealthy country with a GDP per capita of $882.4 billon and a PPP of $41,000. Australia imports and exports a wide range of products, but does particularly well in farming crops, mining, cotton, fisheries, sugar, wool, wine, horticulture, grain, forestry and food.

PhilippinesAustralia ENVIRONMENT The tropical rainforests and coral reefs of the Philippines are home to many wonderful plants and animals - the world's largest fish, the Whale Shark; the world's second-largest eagle, the Philippine Eagle; the world's smallest primate, the Tarsier; and the world's longest snake, the Reticulated Python. On the other hand uncontrolled deforestation and soil erosion in rural areas, air and water pollution in Manila and pollution of the fish breeding grounds in the coastal mangrove swamps are major environmental issues facing the Philippines.
