The Best Time to Invest

            It is not very often to have more than 800 of the top executives of the Philippine largest corporations gather in one room.  There was such an event last November 12 when the 5th Annual Asia CEO Awards were presented by PLDT Alpha Enterprise which celebrates leadership excellence in the Philippines in such areas as entrepreneurship,  technical innovation, global management, sustainable development, corporate social responsibility and other key areas of management. Among those present were Manuel V. Pangilinan representing the First Pacific  group and Henry Sy, Jr. representing the SM group.  These two of the largest conglomerates in the country have given the lie to statements that investments in 2015 will slow down because of political uncertainties.  On the contrary, their spokespersons  have announced investments of hundreds of billions of pesos for 2015.

Thanks to the continuing growth of the Philippines population, Filipinos are in more than 100 countries all over the world, contributing much-needed foreign echange and purchasing power to the Philippine economy and fostering the human and spiritual development of the most diverse of peoples and cultures on this planet.
