ASEAN KEY DESTINATIONS
Philippines businesses offer plan
Raul Concepcion, chairman of newly formed "Gov't Watch," told reporters that they would present to President Benigno Aquino 3rd early next year a shortlist of suggestions aimed at enhancing the operations of four key agencies, namely the Department of Energy, state-run Power Sector Assets and Liabilities Management Corp., and the Bureaus of Customs, and of Internal Revenue.
"The economy and revenue depend on these agencies," Concepcion said, adding that, "We're closely watching [the four agencies] to ensure transparency in government."
Separately, the European Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines (ECCP) said it has teamed up with the American Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines, Asian Institute of Management, Makati Business Club and Management Association of the Philippines to launch a nationwide anti-corruption campaign on Thursday.
"Currently, the campaign has gathered the support of more than 300 companies from a wide range of industries. The campaign aims to help companies fight corruption and operate businesses ethically and with integrity," ECCP said in a statement.
