Message to the Inductees
Congressman Jerry P. Treñas
I wish to thank the officers and members of the Philippine Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s Panay Chapter for inviting me to the 2nd Induction of Officers of your organization. I warmly congratulate all of today’s inductees. May you lead your chamber to greater heights.
Your organization must be commended for strengthening the ties existing among the members of the Filipino-Chinese community. The members of your organization exhibit admirable virtues which reflect the best of both worlds, as you have successfully fused your Chinese roots with your Filipino heritage. The Philippine Chinese Chamber of Commerce continue to strengthen the best of both Chinese and Filipino values, while applying these virtues in business, social responsibility, and family relations.
Today’s inductees epitomize the admirable values that allow the Filipino-Chinese to become extremely successful in their ventures in the Philippines, and abroad. I am certain that the new officers of your Chamber will be able to lead your organization to prosperity, while maintaining the humility and social awareness of the members of your organization.
May I also call upon the new officers of your Chamber to continue your strong partnership with Iloilo City. Through our combined efforts, we have paved the way for the creation of a local society that is conducive to businesses and receptive to the development of industries.
Thank you very much and congratulations to the new officers.
