There are many good, if not great, ideas in the world. But these ideas only contribute to the betterment of mankind when they are properly executed. The two most effective ways are either through government and business. But when the nexus between the government and business happens, greater heights are achieved. The achievements of cooperation between the PH government and the Federation of Filipino Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Inc. (FFCCCII) highlight this. Fortunate to have been invited by Mr. Joaquin Sy to witness this historical event!
