The European Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines (ECCP) wrapped up their 5th Central Luzon Business Council Meeting at the Clarkton Hotel in Angeles City last January 31.
ECCP Executive Director Florian Gottein and Central Luzon Business Council Chair Dr. Andreas Klippe led the first meeting of the year joined by other Clark-based companies in different fields. Gottein briefed everyone with a short primer on the status of Philippine business landscape. He also presented the upcoming challenges of the year including pending laws, which would significantly affect foreign businesses and investments.
ECCP’s Cebu Chapter also joined the meeting via web conference. Cebu Business Council Chair Valeiry Flores and ECCP Cebu Branch Manager Jillian Sitchon shared their experiences in establishing the chamber’s presence in the Visayas to help do the same in Clark.
Attendees were updated on activities the ECCP has held so far in 2020 and invited Clark companies to join upcoming events.
The ECCP Central Luzon Business council regularly holds meetings to foster discussion of business ideas and help overcome challenges.
The ECCP has nearly 800 member companies throughout the country. It has helped Filipino and European enterprises do business on both continents for 40 years. The ECCP has continually cooperated with other local and foreign chambers of commerce and has been a consistent instrument in encouraging European businesses to invest in the country.
