community for increased trade with RP



Toronto, ON -- Sen. Tobias Enverga, Jr. (C, Ontario) has issued a call on the Filipino Canadian business community to work in furtherance of an increased trade between the Philippines and Canada.

Speaking at the Philippine Chamber of Commerce-Toronto (PCCT) Induction Ball and Dinner Gala here on Saturday, May 4, 2013, Sen. Enverga, Jr. recalled the initial steps taken by PCCT when its representative traveled to the Philippines as part of the official delegation of Prime Minister Stephen Harper. He said that PCCT President Oswald Tugadi initiated in principle the signing of MoU with the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI) in the Philippines, as well as with several chapters of the PCCI.

The only Filipino Canadian in the Senate of Canada took note that the PCCT begun implementation of those initial steps when it formed a delegation and conducted a trade mission to the Philippines in February this year. Among those which initially yielded positive results were those in the cosmetics and logistics, trade and cargo forwarding industries.

Sen. Enverga, Jr. told the Filipino Canadian business community not to hesitate to reach his office for assistance on matters in pursuance of the objectives of the PCCT.

The Conservative Senator for Ontario urged the newly-inducted officers and directors of the PCCT to explore working with other Chambers of Commerce elsewhere in the country to expand markets for two-way trade with the Philippines. In mid-April, Sen. Enverga, Jr. had a dialogue with the Manitoba Filipino Business Council which expressed interest in working with various business organizations across the country for economic prosperity of the Filipino Canadian community in Canada.
