H.E. Secretary Gregory L. Domingo met with the Swiss Asian Chamber of Commerce (SACC) at the sidelines of the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting held in Davos, Switzerland from 22 – 25 January 2014.
SACC emphasised their keen interest in improving business between the Philippines and Switzerland. It may be recalled that SACC participated in the WEF 2013 Business Roundtable with the President held in January of 2013. The group extended their commitment to constructively engage, specifically in preparing for a business delegation to the Philippines following the ratification of the Philippines- Switzerland Joint Economic Commission (ratified on December 2013). The group likewise supported the prospects of increased trade with a future PH-EFTA FTA. A business mission is scheduled to arrive in Manila on November 2014.
