Finance Secretary Benjamin Diokno said the Filipino-Chinese business community, a strong partner of the government since 1954, plays a very important role in the country’s development.
Diokno underscored the present administration’s message of unity and committed to strengthening inter-sectoral ties for economic recovery during the Federation of Filipino-Chinese Chambers of Commerce and Industry’s 33rd biennial convention at the Marriott Hotel on March 24.
“The Marcos Jr. administration is built on the premise that unity is vital for recovery. We will stay true to this principle and strengthen inter-sectoral linkages as envisioned in the Philippine Development Plan 2023 to 2028,” he said.
The FFCCCII brings together chambers of commerce and trade associations from all over the Philippines to promote business growth and improve the competitiveness of micro, small and medium enterprises.
“For almost seven decades, the federation has consistently devoted itself to promoting cooperation and co-prosperity between Filipino and Chinese businesses,” Diokno said.
