The JFC (Joint Foreign Chambers) along with Philippine Government agencies, are in the process of producing a road map that will maximize the growth of key sectors in the Philippines as the global economy shows signs of recovery.
Henry Schumacher, executive vice president of the European Chamber of Commerce in the Philippines, stressed the importance of identifying “who is going to do what and when” in areas that the Philippines has a significant advantage over foreign competitors. These areas are agribusiness, creative industries, information technology-business process outsourcing (IT-BPO), tourism and wellness, infrastructure, manufacturing, and logistics, and mining.
The month-long meetings, which began on September 15, will conclude on October 15. In ensuring the key sectors are primed for the post-crisis, Schumacher voiced concerns regarding legislative functions amid the onset of presidential elections; which take place in 8 months.
“We will have a dialogue with government agencies on what can be done administratively. We want to see some cuts in bureaucratic barriers and come up with administrative innovations,” Schumacher said.
