The Philippines has joined the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB). The two countries signed a number of cooperation agreements. This paper attempts to analyze the cooperation areas and the potential development space between the two countries under the framework of the "One Belt One Road". Combined with the advantages of the Filipino-Chinese entrepreneurs, it is concluded that under the One Belt One Road initiative, the Filipino-Chinese entrepreneurs will have bright prospects and will acquire more rare opportunities for development. On the other hand, they will face more challenges because of the drastic competitions with foreign entrepreneurs at home or abroad. The Filipino-Chinese entrepreneurs should raise awareness of the crisis, and take actions to face the challenges.
