Members of the Filipino Community in Germany joined other overseas Filipinos in Europe principally from Belgium, Austria, and the Netherlands for a Trabaho, Negosyo, at Kabuhayan (TNK) Webinar on Franchising Opportunities in the Philippines on 08 August 2020.
The webinar was organized by the Philippine Trade and Investment Centers (PTIC) in Brussels headed by Commercial Counselor Benedict Uy and Berlin, Germany headed by Commercial Counselor Althea Antonio in cooperation with the Philippine Franchise Association (PFA) led by its President Sherill R. Quintana. The activity was supported by the Philippine Embassies in Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany, and Austria.
The participants in the Webinar were provided with valuable information and advice by franchising experts such as PFA Vice Chair Bing Sibal-Limjoco and Mr. Chris Lim.
On hand to introduce their franchise brands were representatives of successful Philippine companies Bibingkinitan, Oryspa, Potato Corner, Pure Nectar, and consulting group U-Franchise brands representing labels such as Brent Gas, H2O Mineral Plus, and Shawarma Shack.
In her brief message, Philippine Ambassador to Germany Theresa Dizon-De Vega echoed the call of her fellow Ambassadors in encouraging overseas Filipinos to help build up the Philippine economy further, generate additional employment and promote consumer interest by looking at franchising options.
This is the second TNK seminar held in Germany this year after the inaugural session held in Hamburg in February 2020. END
