Recognizing that the global economy is increasingly becoming more integrated, the Philippine Franchise Association (PFA), the country’s premier and only internationally-recognized franchise association, continues to be at the forefront in looking for solutions and opportunities to help Philippine franchising and entrepreneurs reap the benefits of a steadily shifting global economic paradigm.
“This year’s APEC summit in the Philippines, the impending ASEAN Economic Community (AEC), the numerous free trade agreements (FTAs) that our country is a party of, and the likely entry of the Philippines in the Trans Pacific Partnership and other trade partnerships are timely reminders and clear indications that the global economy is now linked with a network of freeways allowing for freer trade,” said Mr. Franklin Go, PFA President. “It is in this context that we are holding Franchise Asia Philippines 2015 as we continue to strengthen efforts to help Philippine franchises expand in foreign markets while promoting the Philippines as an investment destination for foreign franchises thus solidifying our position as the franchise hub of Asia.”
“With the theme Opportunities and Challenges in an Integrated Global Economy, Franchise Asia Philippines 2015 presents strategies, solutions and opportunities to help the sector take the full advantage of an integrated global economy,” said Robert F. Trota, Franchise Asia Philippines 2015 over-all chair.
