Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry

On behalf of the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI), my sincerest greetings and congratulations to the men and women of the BusinessWorld Publishing Corp. on your 35th Founding Anniversary celebration.

Media plays a major role in shaping a healthy democracy and political landscape. Its wide reach and influence undoubtedly create a huge impact on one’s social, political, business, and personal views.

As technology continues to evolve so is the news media. In recent times, we have witnessed how social media challenged the traditional and mainstream media. Getting information nowadays has become faster and easier, but disinformation and misinformation have also become more pervasive than ever. Fake news, biases, inaccuracies, and misleading content, are something that news media should not lose sight of.

BusinessWorld has lived up to the challenge of this rapidly changing digital landscape. Venturing into the digital space to maximize your reach through the various platforms such as BusinessWorld Insights, One-on-One Interview Series, and the virtual Economic Forum during the height of a pandemic is a testament of your commitment and dedication to provide the general public with an accurate, fair and balanced gathering of information.

We are happy and honored for considering PCCI as your institutional partner in organizing a relevant and informative webinar series on business and economy and we hope for more fruitful and meaningful years of collaboration.

Again, congratulations and mabuhay tayong lahat.

George T. Barcelon
President

Ardent Communications, Inc.

Congratulations, BusinessWorld, on 35 years of providing a reliable, credible and trustworthy news and information platform for Filipinos everywhere. For more than three decades, you have consistently served the country and our people by delivering timely news, in particular business news, that enables Filipinos from industry leaders and movers to workers and younger readers to gain deeper insights into economic and market developments and make intelligent decisions for their business or work. These decisions affect not only companies but also, and more importantly, the lives of many ordinary Filipinos. We at Ardent Communications, Inc. are proud and grateful for the many years of partnership that we have shared. Since we started working together many years ago, BusinessWorld has always been ready to support us and our clients share the latest news and reach more people, be that through print or online. Even when our queries and concerns already take up BusinessWorld staff’s personal time and even actual emergencies such as when one of your senior account managers addressed our questions while about to go into labor. Truly, you have all been about service. We hope that through our collaborations over the years, we have contributed to providing your readership — Filipinos all over the world and other international readers — with only truthful and correct information, and in so doing help serve as a forum to discuss issues that shape the nation and empower and encourage everyone to work together for a better Philippines. Your anniversary theme of Forward Faster indeed reflects what we know to be your vision for the publication and your readership. That is, to keep forging ahead, even pick up the pace, to effect positive change and contribute to making our nation and by extension the world a better place. In these times of misinformation and disinformation, it is even more paramount to be a platform for factual and reliable information. Indeed, from pioneering business news delivery and being Southeast Asia’s first daily business newspaper decades back, you have made a huge impact in this nation, and only better things lie ahead for you. We’ve always looked forward to working with BusinessWorld and we will continue doing so. Again, congratulations. We wish you only the best in the next 35 years!
