Government and good business

By

The Makati Business Club (MBC) released last Monday the results of its Executive Outlook Survey on the performance of 62 government agencies under the Aquino administration. Of the 62, 43 received positive net satisfaction scores, indicating that more MBC members were satisfied with the performance of these agencies in the past year than those who were not. The survey has been conducted by MBC since 1993 among its members, who simply tick “satisfied” or “not satisfied” for each of the agencies in the list.

Dear Mr. President (again)

By

My article last month shared the contents of a letter to President Aquino, which was signed jointly by the Philippine Business Groups and Joint Foreign Chambers. Another important letter sent to the President was signed by business groups that were part of the 3rd National Conference of Independent Business Clubs held in Davao in November 2013. Sharing the contents of this letter to the President is my concrete contribution to the call of the private sector not to allow the reform agenda to lose steam amid all the noise created by the PDAF scandal and the DAP debate.

The list was a result of a series of dialogues convened so that the private sector could propose some substantive inputs to last year’s State of the Nation Address.

We are our greatest enemy

By

The question often asked today is if we are ready for a freer, more open global market. Might I stress that in many more ways than we realize, it is quite free and open? Many ask: Can we compete? Will our SMEs (small and medium enterprises) survive? Will the Philippine economy benefit, or will it be buffeted by the larger and more powerful wings of our Asean neighbors?
