Chris Nelson, British Chamber of Commerce Philippines Executive Director and Trustee, had a meeting with Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) Secretary, Ramon Lopez last 28th April 2022, and discussed the three-day British Meat Trade Mission.
The Chamber in partnership with UK’s Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board is leading the British Meat Trade Mission scheduled from 17-19th May 2022 to be held at Dusit Thani Hotel, Makati City.
The Mission will be attended by a delegation of nine (9), British meat traders and suppliers with the objective to meet key Philippine importers and distributors.
The event will also offer British delegates the opportunity to explore the local meat industry, discover business and market opportunities that exist and help establish long-term partnerships with their Philippine counterparts.
Event highlights will include a market briefing presented by the Department of Agriculture and a panel discussion with meat industry leaders together with the Philippine Association of Meat Processors Inc (PAMPI).
During the discussion, Nelson also shared the Chamber’s expectations for the next administration to continue implementing policy reforms that would further liberalise the economy and eliminate barriers to foreign investment.
With the passage of key economic reforms amending the Retail Trade Liberalisation Act (RTLA), Foreign Investment Act (FIA) and Public Service Act (PSA), the Chamber is looking forward to communicating these changes in the UK to attract additional investments.
