THE Mandaue Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MCCI) targets to end 2019 with 600 members, as businesses continue to prosper in the city.
MCCI president Stanley Go said the chamber will conduct activities that are relevant to its members that will also propel its membership base to expand.
“Based on the advocacy of the chamber, we want to really be part of community building. We want every company to have that kind of mindset and culture,” he said.
The MCCI inducted 24 new members this year.

With the ongoing Mandaue Business Month, Go said they will conduct activities that will be both beneficial to the member companies and the people of Mandaue.
Go said that with the competition not restrained by geographical location, local companies should go out and sow roots not only in the national level but also in the international scene.
“We have an upcoming business summit that will focus on building the capabilities of member businesses to not just become competitive locally but also be globally competitive,” he said.
On Friday, Aug. 16, 2019, MCCI will stage its annual Mandaue Business Summit at the Oakridge Pavilion in Oakridge Business Park, Mandaue City.
