American Chamber wishes Duterte admin success in anti-drugs campaign

The American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham) is crafting plans supportive of the Duterte administration’s 10-point socioeconomic agenda, and wants this government to succeed in its drive against crime, drugs and corruption so the Philippines could become an even “better, safer destination for investments from all countries,” AmCham’s top executive has told Finance Secretary Carlos Dominguez III.

Reporting on the outcome of what he described as a “very positive and productive” weekend dialogue with Dominguez, AmCham executive director Ebb Hinchliffe informed AmCham members that those who attended the Nov. 5 meeting on behalf of this group had informed Dominguez that they were working on plans in support of the 10-point socioeconomic agenda through AmCham’s various committees and their “Arangkada” advocacy.
Hinchliffe said this week in a memorandum to its members that AmCham had also reiterated to Dominguez during their 90-minute dialogue that “we want this Administration to be successful in ridding the country of crime, corruption and drugs.”
“If this is accomplished we believe the Philippines could be a better, safer destination for investment from all countries,” said Hinchliffe in his Nov. 7 memo, which was furnished Dominguez.
“We assured the administration that AmCham was 100% supportive of the 10-point social-economic agenda and we are crafting plans that will support their implementation,” Hinchliffe said. “We will do this through our committees and our Arangkada advocacy.” read more here.
