On May 10, NordCham Philippines and BDO had the pleasure to invite the Danish Minister of Business, Industry and Financial Affairs Mr. Brian Mikkelsen and a delegation of Danish companies to a dinner. The Minister and his delegation visited the Philippines to promote Danish industries and explore the great potential Philippines has to offer in a variety of sectors from maritime to healthcare and renewable energy. During the dinner, three Danish companies gave a short speech about doing business in the Philippines, from a Nordic perspective. NNIT, Alternergy and Sonion leaders gave an honest and inspirational account of their experiences of establishing a business in the Philippines and proved the benefits of doing business in the Philippines.
Mr. Brian Mikkelsen said: “The Philippines has experienced substantial economic growth over the past years, and its ambitious development plan has led to the great economic success that we see today. However, as we have seen in other places of the world, rapid economic growth populations can also pose new challenges. Food security, resource efficiency, and the provision of healthcare are among the most important challenges, and for years the Danish business community has provided innovative solutions and experience to address these needs. I believe that Danish companies can support the Philippines in maintaining the pace of its development.”
