Hawaiian delegates visit SGV

Guests from Hawaii visited SGV last 19 February 2016 to learn more about investment opportunities in the Philippines. Composed of members of the Filipino Chamber of Commerce of Hawaii and the Chinese Chamber of Commerce of Hawaii, the delegation was led by Philippine Consul General to Honolulu, Ms. Gina Jamoralin. Senior Director Alex Dacanay presented a snapshot of the country’s economy, while Partners Jules Riego and Lucy Chan provided details on how to do business in the Philippines and investment opportunities in the real estate sector, respectively. Copies of the investment brochure Doing Business in the Philippines were also distributed.

Vice Chairman and Deputy Managing Partner Itos Cruz welcomed the delegates and said, “We hope that more businesses from Hawaii will consider more investment opportunities here in the Philippines. We very much look forward to building stronger ties with both the Filipino and the Chinese Chambers of Commerce of Hawaii in the future. We are certain that there is much we can learn from each other, to the mutual benefit of our respective institutions.”
