Event Details

The past few months have exhibited the evolution of the COVID-19 outbreak into an international health crisis. In response to this, countries have imposed travel restrictions, implemented lockdowns, and conducted mass testings, among other measures. In the Philippines, we have witnessed a number of private sector initiatives that complement the government's efforts in this plight. As the country continues to fight against the socio-economic consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic, there becomes an increasing need for strengthened stakeholder support and collaboration.


It is in this context that the ECCP is organizing a Special COVID-19 Webinar entitled "Rebuilding the Socio-Economic Sphere in the Post-COVID Scenario". Join us as we hear from Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque Jr., the Philippine government's socio-economic programs and initiatives, support measures for the private sector, and other plans and priorities in light of the pandemic.


For registration inquiries, please contact Ms. Katrina Baligod at katt.baligod@eccp.com.

How to access the webinar: In a separate email, you will receive the link sent via ZOOM/ECCP, latest 1pm, 1 June.
