Subic Bay Freeport Chamber of Commerce celebrates 20 years

The Subic Bay Freeport Chamber of Commerce (SBFCC) is marking its 20th anniversary this 2015.

As part of the celebrations, the chamber will hold a series of events and activities for the local business community and for the residents in the area. The events will begin with a business exposition dubbed as the "SBFCC Business Expo 2015" and will be held on February 12 and 13 at the Promenade area of the Harbor Point Ayala Malls.

The business expo will feature locations inside the Subic Freeport Zone, as well as other businesses from Olongapo, Zambales, and Bataan. The goal of the expo is to showcase the various businesses in and out of the free port zone, and to show how dynamic the area is in terms of variations in businesses: from manufacturing, import businesses, to shipping, maritime, logistics, hotel and leisure, food and entertainment, to wholesale and retail establishments.

The expo will begin with a motorcade around the free port and in Olongapo City. Joining the said motorcade are the Subic Bay Freeport business establishments and companies, businesses from Olongapo City and Zambales province.

On February 12, 6pm, the SBFCC, in cooperation with Harbor Point Ayala Malls, will also hold a pre-Valentine's day dinner-concert featuring the world-renowned balladeer, David Pomeranz.

"These events are the chamber's way of expressing our gratitude to our members, friends in the business community and affiliates in the government service for their relentless support to the goals of the SBFCC. Our 20 years of existence would not be as meaningful as it is without the help of our members and friends in the business sector," said Rose B. Baldeo, president of the SBFCC. (SNL)
