Atty. Wilma “Amy”Eisma (Chairman and Administrator of SBMA)

(June 10, 2019) .

Service, if it comes from the heart and is borne out of one’s love for people— knows no bounds. It stems from one’s desire to help and in the process, get helped. It is the cycle that is spun and fueled by the spirit of volunteerism. The same spirit that has created the foundation of organizations, establishments (even countries) that we now enjoy. 

image156

MORE OPPORTUNITIES IN SUBIC

 Atty. Eisma  rolled out the plans for Subic, touching base on its history, explaining its operations; citing even the struggles and challenges involved. Most of us  have seen Subic during its heydays when the Americans were still occupying the base and the US Navy’s 7th fleet was a constant site. We have witnessed Subic after Mt.Pinatubo erupted and how it struggled to get back on its feet. We have seen how volunteers protected and maintained order within Subic during those dark days and it is very inspiring to see what  it has now become and we are looking forward to seeing the plans for a much better and brighter Subic come into fruition. Mabuhay!

A big shout out to Mr. Richard Arias, Trade Development Manager of the Port of Houston Authority; our sister Chamber from San Antonio, Houston FilAm community leaders and representatives from the sister cities of Houston, Texas West Africa Chamber of Commerce and Caribbean Chamber of Commerce.

March 22, 2019., the Philippine Consulate in Houston was inaugurated after 25 years of absence. Yes, it is indeed “mission accomplished!” Borne out of the need for government presence and the clamor from thousands of Filipinos for better representation — the Philippine government under the Duterte Administration made our years of hopes and dreams a reality.

In attendance were members of Houston’s Consular Corps, Filipino community leaders, and members of the Philippine diplomatic corps headed by Philippine Ambassador to the US Hon. Jose Manuel “Babe” Romualdez . PCG Houston, Con.Gen. Jerrill Santos and the Consuls General from LA, Chicago, New York and San Francisco.

THE FIRST EVER UFRANCHISE HELD IN HOUSTON WAS A SUCCESS

Promoting entrepreneurship” and “bridging local and international business opportunities"

image184

“Promoting entrepreneurship” and “bridging local and international business opportunities” is the two-pronged mission of the Filipino American Chamber of Commerce Greater Houston. FACCGH was established to help Filipino Americans become entrepreneurs and to provide networks or bridges that can help expand their circles of influence and increase productivity. It is also for this reason that we partner with other Chambers of Commerce in the international community, we embark on Trade Missions, we host Trade shows or Roadshows --- like the one we had last night at the International Trade Center.

Houston is not far behind. Our Mayor’s economic agenda is robust and forward-looking. It draws its strength from Houston’s diversity and inclusivity. Houston is the 4th largest city in the US. It is also the most diverse yet very inclusive which means that no one, no community is ever left behind in terms of economic growth, development and progress. 

The same is true in the Philippines -- the government promotes free enterprise and encourages investments. In the January 2019 report released by NEDA (National Economic Development Authority) it said that the Philippine economic growth remained stable as it grew 6.1 percent in the fourth quarter of 2018 from the revised 6.0 percent recorded in the third quarter. This steady performance—the seventh consecutive year that the Philippine economy sustained its growth of more than 6.0 percent—brings 2018’s full-year growth to 6.2 percent. This is a firm finish that cements the Philippines’ standing as one of the fastest-growing economies in Asia. 

To raise Philippine competitiveness in the global market, the government aggressively pursues measures and policies to facilitate ease in doing business thereby encouraging more investments that boost entrepreneurship, job generation and economic growth in the countryside. 

Thanks to the men and women of the  (FACCGH) for successfully hosting the UFranchise Roadshow.

Special shout-out to the men and women of the Filipino American Chamber of Commerce Greater Houston (FACCGH) for successfully hosting the second leg of the UFranchise Roadshow.

FEDERATION OF PHILIPPINE AMERICAN CHAMBERS OF COMMERCE

THE FEDERATION

The Federation of Philippine American Chambers of Commerce, Inc. (FPACC) continues to set the standard of building business excellence and responsible business leadership for Filipino Americans as it embarks on its 22nd year of service.

FPACC, affectionately called “The Federation” by its members, is a coalition of well-established Filipino-American Chambers of Commerce in the United States. Building upon its bi-national (Philippine-American) platform, the federation is now looking at catapulting its reach to a global stage to include all Filipino business diasporas worldwide, a vision stated by its president, Marie Cunning, during FPACC’s November 2017 bi-national trade conference and leadership elections in Arizona.

The Federation is a strong advocate of business ownership among Filipino-Americans and provides a well-established network of trade and commerce resources for its member chapters in the United States. Among its most senior member chambers are the Filipino Chamber of Commerce of Hawaii (since 1956) and the San Francisco Filipino American Chamber of Commerce (founded in 1973).

FPACC’s counterpart in the Philippines, the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI) and its Philippines-USA Economic & Business Council (PUBC) provide access and opportunities for the Philippine-based chamber chapters with U.S.-based businesses through a memorandum-of-agreement between these twin powerhouse organizations that encompass ongoing business-matching, collaboration and trade missions.

Growing US-Philippines Trade and Commerce is FPACC’s cornerstone program and has been a hallmark success story for the Federation. The super trade mission put together by the Federation in October 2016 in collaboration with the PCCI reached a record breaking $900 Million+ (USD) in trade partnership agreements between the B2B (business-to-business) participants from both countries. With the Philippine homeland’s explosive growth in global economic stature, new business opportunities and investments channels are opened for Filipinos both at home and abroad.
