Through its strong relationship with the government, the European Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines is able to support member companies by facilitating market access and working on the creation of a level playing field for both European and Filipino companies alike.
The ECCP's 23 sector committees convene to discuss cross-cutting and specific issues, listing key recommendations on actions needed to support market access for European businesses, and enable long-term economic welfare for the Philippines. Below are our advocacy wins in 2021.

“With the lockdown of Metro Manila in mid March, we at SAAB were faced with a situation where we had to close the office and key personnel had to leave Manila and the Philippines. With support from ECCP, I have now managed to address the situation with DTI and DFA. Hopefully I will receive a visa shortly that will allow me to return to Manila and support our local staff and customers in the Philippines despite that foreigners are not allowed to enter the country.“
“We have always regarded the ECCP as an important partner. It is a consistent source of information on policies, business news, and potential alliances with other organizations. During the pandemic, our partnership with them grew from strength to strength, united by a common purpose: providing businesses with accurate and relevant information to help members make informed decisions. We will continue to collaborate with the ECCP in webinars about changing consumer attitudes & behavior, improving customer experience, and the socio-economic forces, sparking conversations with fellow members.“
