10th WCEC Shared the “Link” to Chinese-Filipino Community

As it reached its 10th biennial conference, this time, World Chinese Entrepreneurs Convention (WCEC) shared its partnership to the Chinese-Filipino Community.

Last November 19 to 22, 2009, the 10th WCEC bearing its theme “World Prosperity through Chinese Entrepreneurship” gathered over 3,000 Chinese entrepreneurs from 22 countries to further cultivate the relationships of Chinese entrepreneurs around the world.

This four-day event held in SMX Convention Center, SM Mall of Asia Complex, Pasay City, Manila was hosted and organized by the Federation of Filipino-Chinese Chambers of Commerce and Industry, Inc. (FFCCCII), an organization that strengthens its commitment as a partner in nation-building.

Mr. Lucio Tan, one of the prominent Chinese-Filipino business magnate in the Philippines, who was also the convention’s over-all chairman, welcomed and set everyone into the “learning” ambience that the whole convention could have from his fellow Chinese and Filipino co-speakers’ viewpoints. He highlighted points that could be brought up by the entrepreneurial link or partnership in the convention. “…since most Chinese businessmen are in search of investment opportunities…with so much interest in mining, why bypass the Philippines?” he said. He actually capitalized that mineral exploration will feed China’s ever-growing appetite for raw materials for its pre-productions’ progresses.

Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, Former President of the Philippines, together with Jia Qinglin, Chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese Communist Party Central Committee (CCPCC) of People’s Republic of China (PRC), Huang Mengfu, Chairman of All China Federation of Industry and Commerce, Jonathan Choi, Chairman of the Chinese Chamber of Commerce, Alfonso Uy, President of the FFCCCII, and Francis Chua, Chairman of the 10th WCEC Organizing Committee also spoke for the event’s ceremony.
