This coming August, the Asia CEO will hold its first event in Canada, expecting to attract a big crowd of Filipino-Canadians and as discussions focus on the Philippine economy, investment opportunities, and retirement options.
ASIA CEO President Rebecca Bustamante-Mills said the event is set on August 5, from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m., with the Philippines’ most respected economist Dr. Bernardo M. Villegas, giving participants business updates on Asia and the Philippines. The venue of the event, dubbed “Asia CEO Goes to Toronto,” is at Delta Hotel by Marriott Toronto.
“As expected, Filipino-Canadians and Canadians would also be very interested to know what business or investment opportunities we have in the Philippines,” Ms. Bustamante-Mills told THEPHILBIZNEWS. “We are the living proof and believer that there are so many opportunities in the Philippines.”
She underscored that fact that, just like any country in Asia, the Philippines has its fair share of challenges, but many positives enable the country to keep pace with the global economy. She said it is just a matter of exploring these positives for people in Canada to think about investing.
“When they hear and objective and straightforward analysis from no less than Dr. Villegas, they will know and see what awaits them in the Philippines,” Ms. Bustamante-Mills said.
“’Asia CEO Forum goes to Toronto’ is expected to draw interest among the Canadians and also among the Filipino-Canadians who are planning to go back to their roots,” she said.
Back in the Philippines, the Asia CEO which celebrates its 10th anniversary this year has been instrumental in bridging business and expanding the network of people across all races.
Dubbed as the “Oscars of Business” not just in the Philippines but also in Asia, the Asia CEO Forum is one of the most important regular networking events for the international business community across Asia Pacific region today. The forum serves as a hub for the spreading of ideas that help executive managers and young leaders who are given exposures and recognition in various fora conducted by them and with prolific speakers who are really authority in their respective field.
The Asia CEO Forum, Asia CEO Awards and Asia CEO events are founded by Canadian couple Richard and Rebecca Mills. They have advocated the promotion of the Philippines as the investment destination to as many people as possible and across the globe.
