11 September 2023 – Consul General Arlene T. Magno attended the 40th Anniversary celebration of the Philippines Canada Trade Council (PCTC), a Vancouver-based non-government organization established in 1983, with the primordial aim of promoting trade and investment between the Philippines and Canada.

In her remarks, Consul General Magno said that there is no better time than today to promote the Philippines, because it is one of the fastest growing economies in the Southeast Asian region, with strong macro-economic fundamentals, investment grade ratings, government reforms in place, a young and energetic workforce, and a vibrant consumer market.

Prior to the celebration, the PCTC held its annual general assembly. The event was attended by BC government officials, as well as partners and supporters of the PCTC. END
