New York - Secretary of Socioeconomic Planning Ernesto Pernia and President and CEO of the Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) Vivencio Dizon led the Philippine delegation in various business and investment promotion meetings held in New York on 8-9 April 2019.

In the said meetings, Secretary Pernia presented the bright economic prospects of the Philippines and discussed the projects and reforms being implemented by the government to sustain the rapid economic growth of the country.

On the other hand, Mr. Dizon focused on the developments in Clark and the government's Build, Build, Build projects. He encouraged investors to setup their businesses in the Philippines, particularly in Clark, due to its strategic location and the infrastructure developments happening in the area.

As a result of these meetings, several businessmen and investors have expressed interest in considering the Philippines as an investment destination and they are expected to visit the country within this year to further look into the operational details.

Consul General Claro S. Cristobal, Senior Trade Representative Nicanor Bautista, and Consul Arman R. Talbo also participated in the meetings and assisted the Philippine delegation. The Consulate and PTIC-NY will continue the discussion with interested businesses and follow through the gains established by the successful visit of Secretary Pernia and Mr. Dizon.
