The 2017 forum will emphasise the 10-point socioeconomic agenda of the Duterte administration. With a combination of public and private sector speeches and panelists, the forum will discuss key programmes and policies that support achievement of the ten points in the years ahead. Such reforms will be discussed within the framework of Arangkada’s Seven Big Winner Sectors (agribusiness, business process management, creative industries, infrastructure, manufacturing and logistics, mining and tourism).
Launched in 2010, the Arangkada Philippines Project is the major advocacy arm of the JFC to increase investment and employment in the Philippines. In 2010, the JFC published the Arangkada Philippines 2010: A Business Perspective, an advocacy paper reflecting input from focus group discussions of top business leaders on seven sectors with high growth potential: agribusiness, business process management, creative industries, infrastructure, manufacturing and logistics, mining and tourism, with 471 recommendations to build a more competitive Philippine economy, leading to high growth and new jobs.
The JFC has published five annual assessments of these recommendations, six policy briefs and seven policy notes, all intended to improve the investment climate. Their advocacy efforts have contributed significantly to recent strong economic growth and the large increase in foreign direct investment. These publications are available at the Arangkada website.
Registration for The Sixth Anniversary Arangkada Philippines Forum 2017 is now ongoing.
