MAP sets 2018 priorities

The Management Association of the Philippines (MAP) said industries should remain competitive in the face of technological advancement that disrupts the way business is done.

Ramoncito Fernandez, president of the Management Association of the Philippines (MAP) said the group has adopted “Competing in the Age of Disruption” as this year’s theme.

This is also in line with the MAP’s top three priority programs for 2018: competitiveness and ease of doing business, business disruptions and data privacy and cyber security.

“MAP encourages collaborative and transformative programs that will help organizations face the massive disruptions caused by advancements in technology, innovations in business models, prominence of borderless competition, adaptation to climate change, and dynamism in geopolitics,” said Fernandez, also president and chief executive officer (CEO) of Maynilad Water Services.

“In pursuing its mission of promoting management excellence for nation-building, the MAP partners with the business community, the government, the academe and the civil society in pushing for reforms that will help the country improve its competitiveness, enable businesses to capitalize on disruptions, encourage the government to sustain a level-playing business environment, and inspire the citizenry to contribute to social progress,” Fernandez said.

Fernandez will lead the MAP in 2018 along with other board members including Donald Lim, CEO of Dentsu Aegis Network Philippines, as Vice President; Riza Mantaring, CEO and country head of Sun Life Financial Philippines as treasurer; Cesar Romero, country chairman of Shell Companies in the Philippines as assistant treasurer; and Carol Dominguez, president and CEO of John Clements Consultants as secretary.

The other board members are Rene Almendras, president and CEO of AC Infrastructure Holdings Corp.; Romy Bernardo, managing director of Lazaro Bernardo Tiu & Associates; Fred Pascual, special adviser of the University of the Philippines; and Peter Wallace, chair of Wallace Business Forum.

‘The draft Federal Constitution is a clear example of tearing a house down in order to install a new door—where the new door goes into an existing door jamb. There’s barely anything new here, and the few things that are new, don’t actually need a constitutional amendment.’

‘The critique of Gene Lacza Pilapil, assistant professor of Political Science at the University of the Philippines-Diliman, one of the resource persons, should warn us about the draft Federal Constitution produced by the Duterte-created Consultative Committee.’
