The Philippines has increased the minimum daily wage in the capital Manila and neighboring areas by 33 pesos ($0.63) to counter rising prices.

The increase boosts the rate to 570 pesos a day for employees in the non-agricultural sector and to 533 pesos for agricultural workers, the Philippine Labor Department said in a statement.
