For over a century now, PCCI remains a crucial watchdog and partner for development, securing the preeminent mandate as the voice of Philippine business. PCCI’s organizational agenda for 2012 is no different from its existing agenda of economic transformation but complementing this effort, PCCI leadership goes back and give primacy to the very foundation of the chamber movement—its large base of local chambers, industry associations and small and medium enteprise members.
While the business community has generally been supportive of the government’s emphasis on an effective government-private sector partnership, government and the private sector must work harder in the transformation of the country to make it more competitive. This union will create synergies, to effectively harness and put to good use the country’s natural resources and maximize its competitive advantages. A blueprint is necessary for a long term and sustainable economic development that will set the policy direction for drawing private investments, expanding the asset base for the domestic economy and equipping Philippine industries and services sectors to become global winners, and creating jobs that have lasting multiplier effects on the economy.
