President Aquino delivers keynote address in the Filipino-Chinese Chambers of Commerce and Industry convention
 

President Benigno S. Aquino III delivered the keynote address during the opening of the 30th Biennial Convention of the Filipino-Chinese Chambers of Commerce and Industry, Inc. (FFCCCII) at the SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia Complex on Friday.

The President attended the event with Trade and Industry Secretary Gregory Domingo, Interior and Local Government Secretary Mar Roxas and Technical Education and Skills Development Authority Secretary Joel Villanueva.

In his speech, President Aquino invited leaders of the Filipino-Chinese business community from all over the country "to do even more to help us empower the Filipino people".

"When I was in the Legislature, I proposed a measure that called for businesses to share part of their net new profits with their employees. The thinking behind this was simple: Our business environment had reached a point where management and labor had become too adversarial. Where labor wanted more benefits, management wanted to minimize costs, leading to a seemingly endless tug-of-war, often at the expense of potentially lucrative opportunities for all. My intent was to make the antagonistic “you” versus “I” into a “we,” and the methodology was a system that rewards productivity, that allows all stakeholders to benefit from increased profits. I do not expect such a bill to be passed anytime soon, but perhaps your companies can take the initiative: make the effort to give your employees a little more, and it will serve to drive them to be more productive, while at the same time spurring a virtuous cycle of trust and confidence, and sustained growth in terms of our economy," said the President.
