THE PHILIPPINES AFTER THE MAY 9 ELECTIONS
ECCP Cebu Networking Night | Business and Economic Forum
31 May 2016 | 6:30 PM | The Ballroom of Cebu City Marriott Hotel
Jointly with other foreign chambers, the European Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines (ECCP) advocates for rapid economic growth in the Philippines, job creation and inclusivity. We address obstacles to faster growth, such as the lack of infrastructure, traffic issues, connectivity by air and sea, a level playing field for business, successful integration of the Philippines into the ASEAN Economic Community, resource management from energy to water, and a growing partnership between the LGUs and the private sector. Investment promotion and needed incentives for investors (local and foreign) is also high on our agenda.
In line with this, ECCP is organizing an economic and business networking night in Cebu dubbed as “The Philippines after the May 9 Elections” at 6:30pm on May 31, Tuesday, at the Ballroom of Cebu City Marriott Hotel.
Renowned Philippine economist BENJAMIN DIOKNO is our guest speaker who will be giving us an objective analysis of the election results and its effect on the Philippines as a country and as part of the international community.
Professor Diokno provides policy advice and conducts research in different areas including:
- public economics (with focus on structure and scope of government, tax policies and tax reform; government expenditure analysis; national budget, deficit and debt; and decentralization and intergovernmental fiscal relations),
- public expenditure management,
- resource economics (with focus on public policy on water and oil), and
- economic development (with focus on ASEAN transitional economies).
As we understand that this topic is very relevant to the Cebu business community, we are inviting you to be with us in a cocktail party. We charge the following tariff to cover expenses:
ECCP Members – PHP 950.00
Non-members – PHP 1,250.00
