Connecting Opportunities: CCCI Hosts 3 Institutional Courtesy Appointments

The Cebu Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCCI) was abuzz with activity as it hosted three distinguished institutions on July 26, 2023 seeking to expand their business horizons and gain insights into the chamber’s exemplary practices. Hailing from diverse sectors, the visiting delegates included IT Managers Incorporated, City Economic Management and Cooperative Development Office (CEMCDO) of General Santos, and a Courtesy Visit from US Embassy Economic Councilor David Sequera.

Amid an atmosphere of shared enthusiasm and vibrant discourse, CCCI showcased its wealth of best practices, honed over years of dedicated commitment to fostering business excellence. This exchange of ideas not only underscored CCCI’s pivotal role as a conduit for transformative insights but also paved the way for potential business ventures that promise to shape the economic landscape.

Acknowledging the pivotal role that the chamber could play in facilitating their expansion aspirations, the company expressed eagerness for a collaborative voyage that holds the promise of mutual success and prosperity.

Moreover, the General Santos City Chamber of Commerce and Industry Inc. (GSCCCII), led by Dr. Leonard V. Flores, graced the chamber to explore prospective business opportunities and cultivate valuable partnerships.

The spirited dialogues delved into avenues for knowledge exchange, investment synergies, and the blueprint for sustainable economic progress.

Adding an international dimension, Economic Councilor David Sequera from the US Embassy embarked on a courtesy visit to explore Cebu’s business ecosystem and evaluate the feasibility of establishing a satellite office.
