TORRANCE, CA, March 28, 2017 – Discovering Opportunities is a milestone that is the first of its kind in promoting Philippine products in the United States and beyond.

This event invites wholesalers, distributors, importers, retailers and anyone who is considering establishing an e-commerce business. This event hopes to bring attention to the many well-crafted, one-of-a-kind, and innovative products that are manufactured and processed in the Philippines. The event will take place on Wednesday, April 26, 2017, 8:30 am to 12:00 pm and will be held at the Toyota Auto Museum in the City of Torrance. The address is 19600 Van Ness, Torrance, CA 90501.

According to Ferdinand “Bong” Soriano, lead convenor of the event, “ a system of “active selling/promotion” has to be created to consistently promote Philippine products. Data from these types of events are critical to the Philippine manufacturers. It gives them a perspective on how they will enter the US market and beyond. Also, Mike Pestano of Health Evolution, LLC stated “ there is a tremendous importance in creating and engaging social media communities thus create a robust e-commerce website.”
There has already been a great amount of attention regarding products from China. This is a chance to truly focus on the great products of the Philippines manufacturers. The products range from electronics, coconut products, jewelry, clothing, furniture, food and beverages, etc. Pangasinan Brotherhood-USA along with Provenance Holdings Corporation dba PLANET63 created and initiated this project in an attempt to create opportunities for small to midsized Philippine manufacturers to promote their products in the United States and beyond. Also, an avenue or a series of marketing activities are being created to consistently provide “active” selling that would help keep a “top-of-mind” awareness of Philippine products in the United States and beyond.
Provenance Holdings Corp dba PLANET63’s will spearhead the activities in the coming months that will bring attention to Philippine products as a whole.

Investors Optimistic About PH Equities in Next 6 Mos

MANILA -- Investors in the Philippines are quite optimistic about investing in local equities in the next six months, given the improving market conditions, the latest Manulife Investors Sentiment Index(MISI) showed.

"The Manulife Investor Sentiment Index survey revealed that 92 percent of investors in the Philippines indicate that the next six months 'will be a neutral to good time' to invest in equities," Manulife said in a statement on Wednesday, March 22.

The top reasons for the optimism are improving market conditions, better employment situation and stable market place.

"The Philippines delivered encouraging growth momentum in 2016. Looking ahead, we expect a continued execution of larger infrastructure spending and co-investing projects with private capital," said Aira Gaspar, chief investment officer at Manulife Philippines.

"This will generate positive multiplier effects on employment, manufacturing, retail trade and productivity. These factors, coupled with supportive structural reforms, would drive stronger corporate earnings and create new catalysts for Philippine equities," Gaspar noted.

The Philippine economy grew by 6.8 percent in 2016, the fastest since 2013, mainly driven by manufacturing, trade and real estate business activities.

"It is expected that the Philippine economy will continue its strong performance delivered in 2016 and keep its upbeat economic momentum this year," Manulife said.

Manulife also noted good prospects for emerging markets in the region, given the improvement in global economic momentum.

"Despite considerable global political uncertainties, modest improvement in global economic momentum is expected to continue this year," it said.

A separate survey by Thomson Reuters noted that business sentiment at Asia's top companies rose to its highest level in almost two years in the first three months of the year, on the back of positive economic signs from the United States and China.

Earlier this year, First Metro Investment Corp. (FMIC) said it expects the local stock barometer to reach the 2017 full-year target of 7,500. — GMANews
