“As one of the pioneer members, the ECCP has been a resource and support to our organization in promoting trade between Belgium and the Philippines. Through this challenging time, our partnership with ECCP has been more vital. The daily advisories on COVID-19 and the series of webinars provide invaluable sources of information that keep us abreast with the latest developments in the country and connect us with industry stakeholders. With its long history of dynamic leadership and influence, we are proud to be a part of this strong organization.“
“As a management company of hotels and resorts, we at AHG value our membership with the ECCP. It is essential in the hospitality industry to grow our network and widen our reach outside our usual sphere of influence. With so many competitors all vying for a larger slice of the pie, we have to continuously grow our market share since this is key to our profitability. ECCP had networking events before the pandemic that helped us tap other audiences. Even now, they have provided ways to connect online and provide insightful webinars.“
“Not just staying abreast but keeping ahead of the times made ECCP at the forefront of our daily source of input and valuable insights into our business considerations. The current pandemic crisis was proof of ECCP’s continuing efforts to serve its membership. The myriad of information that was imparted to our team through all the forums and webinars that was conducted proved very vital during those early times of uncertainty and apprehension. We will continue to salute ECCP’s dedication to serving the group and our country as a whole.“
“The ECCP allowed us to engage with other multinationals in the industry. The ECCP’s value during the pandemic emerged as it swiftly provided relevant business tools: centralized, consistent, and accurate information through newsletters, opportunities for conversations through webinars, and insightful studies. There is a palpable feeling that the ECCP genuinely exists to aid the business community during these times. As a member for 24 years, All Transport Network’s benefits with the ECCP have evolved over the years; it is a testament to how our partnership grows together and remains relevant.“
“We have been a key member of the ECCP as we see a clear alignment of culture and goals.

The ECCP is a very friendly and active community. The trainings they provide are also relevant and useful to our business.“
