Friends from the media, guests, & CCCI good afternoon.
On behalf of the Cebu Chamber of Commerce and Industry, it is my great pleasure to welcome you all today at the kick off of the Cebu Business Month (CBM) 2022. I wish to congratulate the CBM working team, sponsors, and partners for organizing this event which I believe – very phenomenal.
As the flagship project of the Cebu Chamber, the CBM actualizes CCCI’s thrust in Connecting Opportunities, Growing Businesses, and Creating Value through its general objective of inspiring, promoting, and growing Cebu businesses.
Today, CBM will be celebrating its 26th year as it banners the theme “Go Cebu!” with the tagline “Realign, Reinforce, Rebuild” – a gathering of stakeholders in the fields of Tourism, ICT-BPM, Entrepreneurship, and Creative Industry in a series of events to showcase informative and engaging programs to provide bigger opportunities for each industry.
Spearheaded by the ever dynamic and brilliant CBM 2022 Chairperson Brigitte Carmel Lim, who is determined in drawing on the strengths of each key industry, backed by her equally active and versatile CBM 2022 Team, it is without a doubt that this year’s CBM will be significant as it delivers more meaningful activities that will contribute to the competitive advantage of Cebu in the global economy.
The timing of this kick off could not be better, echoing the pace of an ongoing economic recovery as CCCI heightens the vision of CBM to inspire beneficial results despite these challenging times.
As today’s event progresses, our bridge ride through the iconic Cebu Cordova Link Expressway (CCLEX) will be joined by our friends from the Motorcycle Club of Cebu to be led by RD Tamano, together with the PACE Group and Lamborghini Ride.
Again, welcome to the CBM 2022 Kick Off Bridge Ride!
