Our membership with the ECCP has been a rewarding experience for our organization given their relevant and timely programs and conferences for its members. We have gained a lot from our attendance of the conferences and webinars, giving us a different perspective on the way business is being done here and overseas.

Becoming a member of the ECCP has been a way for us to grow our brand's visibility within the European community in the Philippines.

Becoming a member in the ECCP is more than just a membership, it is a partnership as the ECCP helps in providing countless opportunities to achieve our business goals.
The ECCP allowed us to engage with other multinationals in the industry.

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.

Upgrading from entry-level membership to premium membership gave us access to more channels and more collaboration opportunities, which helped us effectively reach ECCP member companies and build strong connections.
Asia is Europe’s largest trade corridor and as the largest bank, based on Market Cap, headquartered in Europe along with our cultural heartland firmly based in Asia, we see the ECCP partnership over the last 42 years as being important to connect with other ECCP members, keeping close to the corridor, and new business opportunities between Europe and the Philippines.
As one of KMC Savills’ longtime trusted partners, the ECCP has been a wonderful avenue of information dissemination and thought leadership in the crucial times of the global pandemic.

The ECCP is a key partner not only in our insurance inclusion advocacy but also in our work on mobile health as a way to improve access to primary healthcare.

We have been with the ECCP for almost 20 years, given the ECCP's professional approach to commercial and political matters.

Our membership facilitated joint advocacies shared and expanded not only through the ECCP, Integrity Initiative, and JFC, but other European chambers as well, opening doors to harvesting opportunities in differentiating our services.
