27 May 2011, Washington D.C. US Chamber of Commerce (USCOC) executives, led by Vice President for Asia Tami Overby, called on Philippine Ambassador to the United States Jose L. Cuisia, Jr. today.  The USCOC representatives discussed the Chamber’s key trade advocacy agenda and reaffirmed their commitment to doing business with the Philippines.

Ambassador Cuisia expressed his appreciation to the Chamber leadership for the continued strong support to the Philippines through the American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham), the oldest US chamber in the world. He conveyed the Embassy’s near-term priorities and provided updates on the good governance agenda of the Aquino administration. He also underscored the opportunities available to investors, including the Private-Public Partnership (PPP) program.

The USCOC is the world's largest business federation representing the interests of more than 3 million businesses of all sizes, sectors, and regions, as well as state and local chambers and industry associations.

The Chamber will feature Ambassador Cuisia in its June 2011 Asian Ambassador’s Luncheon Series, to be hosted by IBM. END
