The ECCP is one of the most dynamic chambers in the country in promoting the development of Philippine-European relations and industry. During the current pandemic, the chamber has continued to be very active in connecting with its members and different stakeholders with relevant content and meaningful engagements.

Joe Bantiling

Chief Executive Officer/President, Trends & Concept

In any relationship, trust is an essential factor for it to last. The ECCP has lived up to its commitment of providing value to the partnership. I admire the support it gives to members by building a community within, thereby promoting inclusive growth among member partners. We are a beneficiary of this ecosystem, thus, we stayed.

Nabil Francis

ECCP President / Chief Executive Officer, Republic Cement Services, Inc.

For Republic Cement, having the ECCP network has proved strategic and helpful during the ongoing crisis. It allowed us to share knowledge and best practices between members, allowing us to elevate our respective health and safety protocols and preserve the safety of our colleagues and fellow members. By participating in the Sector Committee, our membership has allowed us to dialogue with key members of the Philippine government to extend our support and provide insight from an industry level. We are grateful for the ongoing partnership with the ECCP and look forward to future collaborations.

Our membership in the Chamber doesn't just provide us an opportunity to connect with the business community; it is a fruitful investment in a partnership that helps us in working towards achieving our business objectives.

More than 40 years of experience in connecting and engaging with the responsible Government contacts and knowledge about the operating environment made ECCP to a valued partner for discussion of upcoming or planned changes of legislation, which impacts Foreign Direct Investments in the Philippines. ECCP helps their members with the active Industry specific advocacy to influence developments, which will influence their economic profitability and growth of their business in the future.

As Chair of the ECCP Agriculture Committee, Nestlé Philippines is committed to helping build a sustainable and responsible agricultural supply chain in support of farmers.

Lars Wittig

Country Manager, Regus & Spaces by IWG

Having served as ECCP President and Vice President for more than 4 years, I have witnessed the tremendous growth of the Chamber for the last several years, as it waded through a great deal of uncertainty especially at the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic. Nevertheless, it continued to provide excellent service for its members. It then comes as no surprise that ECCP is often dubbed as the Chamber of Choice.

Jet Parma

ECCP Director / President & Country Manager, Sygenta Philippines, Inc.

ECCP continues to be an influential and valuable partner over the years. Through the different advocacies of the association, member companies can take part in policymaking that contributes to the overall improvement of the business sector and the economy. Amidst the current national emergency, ECCP has supported us by providing relevant information through its Viber group. Thus, we were able to get our IATF IDs early in the ECQ that helped us continue our operations as an essential sector.

Penny Estrada

ECCP Young Professionals Committee Chair / Chief Commercial Officer, All Transport Network

In a business culture that acknowledges hierarchies, it has been thrilling and an honour to bridge generational gaps and create conversations between top executives & young professionals. To participate and be treated as a peer in ECCP board meetings has been my mini-MBA, a humbling experience. As a chamber, ECCP differs with its extensive scope – throughout industries, networks, capabilities – yet the relationships remain intimate and ATN’s customised needs are always met.

Dr. Andi Klippe

ECCP Clark Business Council President / Chief Executive Officer, Flood Control Asia RS

This global pandemic has gravely affected the rhythm of daily business, but the ECCP never missed a step. It quickly adapted to the new normal, strengthening its networks with constant and open communication and bringing service to where it is needed. As the Chair of the ECCP North Luzon Business Council, we do our best in extending the same level of service from our office in Clark to ECCP members in North Luzon. Without a doubt, the ECCP continuously fulfills the promise of being the chamber of choice.
