Philippine Business Conference and Exposition set for Oct. 24-26, 2007

The Philippine Business Conference and Exposition (PBC&E), considered as the premier business event of the year, will be held on October 24-26 at the Manila Hotel. With the theme ONE. GLOBAL. FILIPINO. Through Public-Private Partnership, the 33rd PBC&E will showcase the preeminent role of the public and private sectors in instituting significant reforms and initiatives to harness the country’s competitiveness and promote the growth of industries through investments and other business opportunities.

Chairing this year’s conference is Amb. Francis Chua, Special Envoy on Trade and Investment to China and a member of PCCI’s Board of Advisers. He is also the immediate Past President of the Federation of Filipino-Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industries, Inc. Amb. Chua also heads various companies engaged in information and communication technology, construction, manufacturing, and financial trading.

As an embedded business tradition spanning three decades of unparalleled advocacy for business and economic development, the PBC&E serves as a foothold to sensible and no-holds-barred public-private interaction and dialogue for key policy issues in the country.

Gathering hundreds of leaders here and abroad, the 33rd PBC&E is seen as the convergence of brilliant minds and ideas, making it the ideal venue to develop synergies and partnership between government and business. With top executives coming from the private sector, the business community is expected to contribute its expertise in the field of market orientation, access to finance, and technical knowledge, as complemented by government leaders and their adeptness in the areas of public  accountability,

 legal structure, and social responsibility, in relation to the move towards development.

This year’s conference will feature various topics that aim to provide businessmen from different sectors a keen understanding of important issues related to global competitiveness, market access, value chain development, good governance, and global
opportunities for investments, most importantly joint projects with government.

A number of expositions in different malls will also be held, showcasing various export-quality products and services of Philippine sunrise industries. Business matching sessions aimed to identify and open available business opportunities, here and abroad, will also be conducted as part of the conference.

With no-holds-barred public-private interaction and dialogue for key policy initiatives in the country as they impact at both micro and macro levels of growth, the PBC&E serves as the perfect capacity building tool for the Global Filipino Entrepreneur as he situates himself in a globalizing economy.

The PBC&E season kicks off with a series of Area Business Conferences for South Luzon, NCR, North Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao. It will be held in Legazpi City on August 3-4, in Manila on August 16-17, in La Union on August 24-25, in Bacolod City on September 7-8, and in General Santos City on September 14-15, respectively.
