Are you ready for the ASEAN Integration in 2015? The Advisory-Deals and Corporate Finance group led by its Managing Partner Mary Jade Divinagracia, welcomed distinguished speaker, Dr. Bernardo “Bernie” Villegas of the University of the Asia & Pacific to discuss a hot topic in the business community, the ASEAN Integration.  

Dr. Villegas discussed the economic, political and social profiles of each ASEAN community and the pros and cons of the integration to the Philippines. He also shared valuable insights on the industry sectors that will benefit from the single market and production base resulting from the integration.

The attendees enjoy a light and engaging session with Dr. Villegas. 

After the presentation, the partners and senior managers who attended raised questions and exchanged information with the speaker during the Q &A portion.

Tax Managing Partner Malou Lim gave the closing remarks and presented a token of appreciation to Dr. Villegas for the very lively and interesting talk. The two-hour learning session was held at the Leadership Room last 22 September.
