Arangkada’s History: Focus Group Discussions on the 7 Big Winners

September 9, 2011 at 10:31

Arangkada Philippines 2010: A Business Perspective was not prepared in a vacuum; it drew extensively from a wide range of policy papers, workshops, and publications. Many of these were used and are recognized in the bibliography.

However, we single out as a special source of recommendations that is the core of this document – a series of nine Focus Group Discussions (FGDs) organized by the Joint Foreign Chambers of Commerce of the Philippines and three Legislative Workshops organized by the American Chamber of Commerce between September 2009 and April 2010, in which hundreds of experts participated. Many corporate executives and large investors joined these FGDs contributing their thoughts on needed reforms. They were guided by ten moderators, each an expert in the subject of the FGD. The legislative workshops involved public and private sector experts reviewing the accomplishments of the 14th Congress and identifying needed legislative reforms for future Congressional consideration.

The recommendations that emerged from the FGDs are described in the section that discusses the Seven Big Winners, while legislative recommendationscan be found in a later section.
