Marriott Hotel, Pasay City
27 October 2015
President Benigno S. Aquino III attended the closing ceremony of the 41st Philippine Business Conference and Expo (PBC&E) held at the Grand Ballroom of Marriott Hotel Manila in Pasay City.
The conference, hosted by the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI), was a two-day event featuring the top industries in the country working together and sharing their best practices to further develop the Philippines’ growing economy.
As a highlight of the ceremony, President Aquino received a copy of the 41st PBC Resolutions from PBC&E Chairman Benedicto V. Yujuico.
In his speech, the President noted that the key to the country’s steady progress is to help improve the lives of the common people. “When more of our countrymen are able to earn a decent living, it also means they are more empowered consumers who have a clear path to progress. It follows that they have a greater capacity to avail of the goods and services offered by companies, which consequently allows our companies – and our economy – to grow,” the President said.
