ALL is set for the conduct of 23rd Mindanao Business Conference (Minbizcon) road show in Iloilo City.
Department of Trade and Industry Regional Officer-in-Charge Dr. Sitti Amina Jain said the road show is set to be held Tuesday and will be spearheaded by the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI)-Western Mindanao chapter.
It will be in partnership with the Zamboanga City Chamber of Commerce and Industry Foundation, Inc. (ZCCCFI), Mindanao Development Authority (MinDA), and the DTI.
Jain said it is aimed to inform and to consult the stakeholders in Mindanao on the ASEAN economic integration and the anticipated establishment of the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) in 2015.
Jain said the road show, which is anchored in the theme "Gearing Up For AEC 2015," is being conducted in all the six regions of Mindanao as a pre-conference activity of the Minbizcon.
She said the consultative aspect of the road show is deemed vital in the formulation of policy resolutions which will then serve as basis and guide in the crafting of relevant programs and strategies to be pursued by the government as well as the private sector in relation to the AEC.
She said the PCCI-Western Mindanao chapter has invited businessmen, government officials, members of the academe, and the local media to attend the event. (Bong Garcia)
