Understanding Choices Forum

Eduardo Aboitiz Development Studies Center Presents the "Understanding Choices Forum - Mitigating the Impact of the Economic Crisis: What can we do in Cebu?"

Friday, July 10, 2009 from 1:00 PM - 5:30 PM (PT) Cebu City, Philippines

Various national programs have been initiated to ensure resiliency against the impact of the world financial crisis. However, the issue has not been discussed at length with regards to its impact in provinces and cities. Thus, it is high time to understand the impact and forecast of the crisis within the context of Cebu.

Speakers were:

Joey A. Bermudez, Maybridge Asia, Inc., Chairman; Management Association of the Philippines, Manager; Chinatrust (Philippines) Commercial Bank, Former CEO

Fernando C. Fajardo, Economics, University of San Carlos, Professor; Cebu Daily News, Columnist; National Economic Development Authority Region 7, Former Director

The implications and the mitigating measures of the GEC were discussed by the 2 speakers based from there own research and observations.

Present during the forum were local government representatives, Non-Government Organizations (Ramon Aboitiz Foundation, Philexport and more) Students, Urban-Poor Coops, Business Institutions (VECO, Aboitizland, Metaphil & more)

Gained a lot of insights from the forum; although I didn't raise any questions since I was still recovering from the rapid absorption of information; also I was informed it will be a quarterly event, so perhaps if I would be able to attend the next session, then I will definitely ask a lot.
