Chicago Bar Association delegates visit SGV

Chicago Bar Association delegates visited SGV last 25 March as part of a one-day business conference on the topic “Doing Business in the Philippines and Asia.” The delegates’ trip was in partnership with the United States Department of Commerce.

In his welcome remarks, Deputy Tax Services Head Willie Villanueva noted, “[The] visit follows an increasing number of visiting delegations to the Firm, such as delegations from Vietnam, Indonesia, China and other countries. We are always glad for these significant interactions, which allow us to not only build stronger regional ties in the name of friendship and business, but also allow us to share our company’s history and values.”

Tax partner Louie Ferrer gave a presentation on doing business in the Philippines and Transaction Advisory Services director Alex Dacanay discussed the economic outlook for the country and ASEAN. Afterwards, the delegation went on a tour of the Asia Pacific Talent Hub.
