BPI Family Savings Bank Ka-Negosyo Loans strengthens its campaign for Filipino entrepreneurship as it once again co-presents the Franchise Asia Philippines 2014, Asia’s biggest 4-in-1 franchise event organized by the Philippine Franchise Association (PFA) at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City.
With the theme, “Asia to the World. The World to Asia. Conquering an Intergrated ASEAN”, the Franchise Asia Philippines 2014 opens its International franchise expo led by Mrs. Hanep Buhay, Senator Cynthia Villar, to share valuable insights on the Philippine landscape in the field of business and entrepreneurship. Dubbed as the biggest franchise show in Asia, Franchise Asia Philippines 2014 offers a platform to gain important insights about the ASEAN’s vibrant market and the ASEAN Economic integration.
BPI Family joins PFA in bringing Franchise Asia Philippines 2014, the biggest 5-day franchising event that also features educational seminars and a 2-day international franchise conference. BPI Family Ka-Negosyo also extends to the attendees and delegates its exclusive Ka-Negosyo Franchise Financing Program to help them in reviewing and identifying the best franchise brand that suits their interests, capability, and profitability.
“I would like to commend the Philippine Franchise Association for taking the lead role through the Franchise Asia Philippines 2014 to inform and prepare franchisers and franchisees about the various challenges and opportunities that the upcoming AEC will generate. I am confident that the exhibitors and attendees here would gain full knowledge from both the conference and expo, particularly on franchise brands that create foreign market as well as international brands, which are looking at the Philippine market for expansion and has an entry point to the ASEAN market,” shares Senator Cynthia Villar.
“With the committed effort of the Philippine Franchise Association and the franchiser community, we can attain that goal sooner. Let us all seize the opportunities and possibilities that are presenting themselves to us. Likewise, in the same way as foreign franchises are expanding their businesses in our country, I urge Filipino franchisers to explore other regional and international markets as well,” she concludes.
