Under the leadership of ASEAN BAC Philippines chairman Joey Concepcion, Philippine companies clinched 13 out of 53 awards in the 2020 ASEAN Business Awards to account for the largest number of awardees from a single country.
After taking the helm of the ASEAN Business Advisory Council in 2017, Concepcion ensured that the Philippines is well-represented in ABAC’s regional events and activities.
Of the 98 verified submissions from the Philippines, 12 finalists made it to the shortlist. Together with one nominated winner from ACCMSME, the 13 winners from the Philippines all received recognition on the ASEAN level.
“I am pleasantly surprised by the turnout indicating the strong interest of the business community to participate in the awards. ABA is an excellent platform to bring local companies up to a regional standard, increase their competitiveness, and strengthen cross-border collaboration,” said Concepcion.
Potato Corner led by Jose Magsaysay took home the SME Excellence-Growth award. Stylist in Pocket Technologies Inc. led by Sheree Roxas Chua-Gotuaco bagged the SME Excellence-Innovation award.
