“As the global political economy continues to change at an unprecedented pace, the Philippines could become a bright spot in the world if the government’s efforts on independent foreign policy and inclusive economic development can be achieved—the risk factors involve potential external and/or internal efforts at destabilization."
– Founder of DifferenceGroup Dr. Dan Steinbock, advisor to governments and MNCS in USA, Europe, and Asia.
“Independent Foreign Policy has benefited the Philippines already, and will continue to do so, by being open to all sensible projects and partners… We need to think and stand up for ourselves as Filipinos!
Never have the opportunities been closer, larger, more diverse, or the means to achieve them so easily within our reach…
Relationships will always have obstacles… but we must not only be resilient but entrepreneurial, creative, and work for the collective good.”
– IDSI President George Siy, Business-Industry Leader, Social Entrepreneur, Former Director of Philippine Chamber of Commerce & Industry.
