Through its strong relationship with the government, the European Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines is able to support member companies by facilitating market access and working on the creation of a level playing field for both European and Filipino companies alike.
The ECCP's 23 sector committees convene to discuss cross-cutting and specific issues, listing key recommendations on actions needed to support market access for European businesses, and enable long-term economic welfare for the Philippines. Below are our advocacy wins in 2022.
ECCP Signed and Co-signed position papers and letters
Engagements with the Philippine and European governments
“Pacifictech Solutions has been a member of ECCP since 2013. We stayed as a member of ECCP because they give us access to a local and global network of businesses that opens doors to new opportunities and initiates future collaboration. It has been a fruitful journey that has strengthened our stand in the Philippine and European business community. We truly appreciate their commitment to keep their members engaged during this difficult time. ECCP has always been a provider of good business support and we are looking forward to more years with them.“
“The ECCP has provided us with relevant actionable information that made a huge difference in our ability to effectively continue serving our clients here in Northern Mindanao and Mindanao. The pandemic has brought to the fore a unique set of problems and concerns that severely hampered many corporate entities in Mindanao and Region 10. The timely information provided by the ECCP and its members on the many and different aspects of the pandemic has further enabled our law firm to assist our corporate and business clients navigate, respond to, and face, this public health emergency.“
“Our clients look to us for expert advice on how to navigate complicated situations. We must foster a culture of curiosity within the company that allows us to look at multiple outcomes and help strategize for and with our clients. ECCP has helped us tremendously in supplementing our knowledge about critical industries and the disruptions happening within and around them. We trust ECCP to provide proactive content for the emerging ones that will shape the conversations of the future. I am positive that EON's synergy with ECCP will bring us closer to our shared goals and aspirations.“
“It has been a productive, impactful and fun ride with ECCP the past 12 years. It was very challenging but productive to chair the ECCP Women in Business Committee. We made a mark by highlighting that women in business are more than ready to continue demanding more seats, space and voice at the table. The founding of Lobien Realty Group is my best personal example. The impact is noticeable by the growing number of participants in this Committee. ECCP and the WBC have become an avenue for women members to learn from each other, seek mentors and friends, network with other women business leaders.“
“Through the efforts of the Chamber to provide updates and business connections to its members, ECCP has been a good source of information during this challenging time especially on government efforts in supporting businesses in the Philippines. It was an avenue for MACC to learn and cope through the various trainings and webinars. With ECCP's endeavors, its members gained access to the various business efforts in promoting good business among its members.“
“ADVANTAGE AUSTRIA Manila provides a broad range of business development services for Austrian companies stepping into the Philippine market. Being among the first to know about new developments in the business landscape here in the Philippines and at the same time being able to highlight different approaches and to discuss solutions for international companies, is what makes participating in ECCP Committees so valuable. Thus, ADVANTAGE AUSTRIA can make good on its commitment towards our member companies to support them in this thriving market.“
