Dear PBEC Community,
I am pleased to share my initial reaction and thoughts to our wonderful PBEC delegation trip to the Philippines on 19-20th April 2023 in Manila held at New World Makati Hotel, and our subsequent economic estate official visit to LIMA Technology Center, in Lipa Batangas City- by ABOITIZ INFRACAPITAL Inc.
The welcome and feedback we received from the PBEC delegates themselves, the official speakers and Government representatives from across APAC proved nothing quite beats meeting people face to face and enjoying some tasty food and beverages together. The result, a resounding success!
The purpose: To provide detailed updates and economic analysis content for our PBEC community on the Philippines, in particular sharing the latest opportunities for all business and decision makers needs.
The where: Providing an opportunity to shine a spotlight on the Philippines economic zones, tax regime, incentives for investors and how these zones are driving traditional trade & smart manufacturing, new sustainable innovations and e-commerce across the Philippines and beyond.
The outcome: Building a much clearer understanding of what’s on offer and possible in the Philippines from a business perspective which PBEC is happy to share across its vast APAC network. We bring together and meet with Government and business leaders, building trust and cooperation, supporting future business to be conducted together through genuine market intelligence, follow up, feedback and referrals.
