The Philippines was Asia's fastest growing economy in the second quarter, based on the government's announcement on Thursday of 7.0 percent annual expansion in April-June.
The pace was the country's quickest in three years, and beat the first quarter's 6.8 percent and a Reuters poll forecast of 6.7 percent.
China reported second quarter growth of 6.7 percent. India, which had the fastest annual growth in January-March, with 7.9 percent, will report April-June data on Aug. 31.
Helping lift growth in the second quarter was campaign spending ahead of the May 9 presidential vote won by Rodrigo Duterte.
The Philippines said that on a seasonally adjusted quarterly basis, the economy grew 1.8 percent in the latest period, matching a Reuters poll forecast and topping the upwardly revised 1.3 percent for January-March.
Economic Planning Secretary Ernesto Pernia told a media briefing the economy's strong showing in the June quarter "increases the probability of our attaining" the government's 6-7 percent growth target for all of 2016.
The statistics agency said investments, which rose a faster 27.6 percent in the second quarter from a year earlier, made the biggest contribution to second quarter growth, followed by household consumption, which picked up to 7.3 percent.
Government consumption climbed 13.5 percent, compared with the previous quarter's 11.8 percent on-year gain.
Annual growth in the Philippines has stayed above 6 percent since the third quarter of 2015, as strong domestic demand, underpinned by remittances and low inflation, helped cushion the impact of sputtering global demand on the country's exports.
In the first half, exports were down 7.5 percent from a year earlier.
Since May 2015, the annual inflation rate has stayed below the bottom end of the central bank's 2-4 percent target, allowing the monetary authority to keep policy steady since a 25 basis point hike in the main rate in September 2014.
