european chamber <strong>of</strong> commerce <strong>of</strong> <strong>the</strong> philippines


I congratulate <strong>the</strong> <strong>European</strong> <strong>Chamber</strong> <strong>of</strong> <strong>Commerce</strong> <strong>of</strong> <strong>the</strong> <strong>Philippines</strong> on <strong>the</strong> publication <strong>of</strong> <strong>the</strong> 2011<br />

edition <strong>of</strong> <strong>the</strong> Philippine <strong>European</strong> Business Directory. This very publication affirms <strong>the</strong> ECCP’s active<br />

participation in <strong>the</strong> Philippine’s business scene. This is also a fitting occasion to celebrate <strong>the</strong> historic and<br />

still-vibrant trade relations between <strong>the</strong> <strong>Philippines</strong> and Europe.<br />

The ECCP’s efforts to promote stronger ties among Filipino and <strong>European</strong> enterprises come at a crucial<br />

historical juncture. From <strong>the</strong> beginnings <strong>of</strong> Filipino-<strong>European</strong> commerce, <strong>the</strong> link between our business<br />

communities has always been marked by dynamic partnerships and innovative ventures. Now, as our<br />

nation embarks on a new journey <strong>of</strong> transformation, part <strong>of</strong> our thrust is to encourage investments and<br />

enhance <strong>the</strong> country’s business environment. These are among <strong>the</strong> key aspects <strong>of</strong> our agenda for growth<br />

and positive change. My administration’s campaign against poverty and corruption demands a solid economic<br />

foundation, which our partners in <strong>the</strong> local private sector and <strong>the</strong> international business community<br />

are helping to build.<br />

In light <strong>of</strong> this, I commend <strong>the</strong> ECCP’s various initiatives to boost <strong>the</strong> competitiveness <strong>of</strong> Philippine industries<br />

and advocate good corporate citizenship. The “Integrity Initiative” project, spearheaded by <strong>the</strong> ECCP<br />

in cooperation with <strong>the</strong> Makati Business Club and o<strong>the</strong>r leading business organizations, is noteworthy for<br />

its goal <strong>of</strong> revolutionizing ethical standards in business transactions and turning integrity and transparency<br />

into key competitive advantages for our industries.<br />

As part <strong>of</strong> <strong>the</strong> Joint Foreign <strong>Chamber</strong>s, <strong>the</strong> ECCP was also instrumental in defining a clear business<br />

outlook for <strong>the</strong> coming year, by identifying <strong>the</strong> country’s “7 Big Winners”: seven sectors with <strong>the</strong> greatest<br />

potential for bringing in investments and generating employment. The JFC’s recommendation for each <strong>of</strong><br />

<strong>the</strong>se areas could contribute invaluably to <strong>the</strong> overall advancement <strong>of</strong> our business sector.<br />

The ECCP has likewise demonstrated <strong>the</strong> importance <strong>of</strong> corporate social responsibility as an integral<br />

component <strong>of</strong> business development, through <strong>the</strong> “green initiatives” on urgent environmental concerns,<br />

affecting not only commercial enterprises but also society at large. Its promotion <strong>of</strong> cleaner production<br />

methods and more efficient energy use will go along way in improving business conditions, and in ensuring<br />

<strong>the</strong> people’s welfare.<br />

With this, we look forward to stronger partnerships between <strong>the</strong> Filipino and <strong>European</strong> business communities,<br />

as we forge ahead on <strong>the</strong> straight path to progress, in this new era <strong>of</strong> hope for <strong>the</strong> <strong>Philippines</strong>.<br />

message<br />

The <strong>European</strong> Union with its 27 Member States and over 500 million citizens is <strong>the</strong> largest economy in <strong>the</strong><br />

world. Mandated by <strong>the</strong> Lisbon Treaty <strong>the</strong> <strong>European</strong> External Action Service (EEAS) was created in January<br />

2011. Ca<strong>the</strong>rine Ashton as <strong>the</strong> High Representative for EU Foreign Policy, stated: “This new diplomatic<br />

service will enable us to forge comprehensive strategies on <strong>the</strong> big questions <strong>of</strong> our time. Issues and<br />

problems that are inter-linked, where we have to identify <strong>the</strong> connections and forge <strong>the</strong> right solutions<br />

and strategies.”<br />

Bilateral relations between <strong>the</strong> <strong>Philippines</strong> and <strong>the</strong> <strong>European</strong> Union succeeded in June 2010 to finalize<br />

<strong>the</strong> negotiations and initial <strong>the</strong>ir bilateral Partnership and Cooperation Agreement (PCA). This PCA will<br />

be instrumental as framework for fur<strong>the</strong>ring our dialogue, cooperation and joint actions across <strong>the</strong> whole<br />

spectrum <strong>of</strong> EU-Philippine bilateral relations, including political issues, trade and investment cooperation,<br />

justice and security, migration as well as economic and development issues. The PCA is <strong>the</strong> first-ever<br />

comprehensive agreement between <strong>the</strong> <strong>European</strong> Union and <strong>the</strong> <strong>Philippines</strong> and will serve as general<br />

framework for regular exchanges and cooperation on issues <strong>of</strong> our common interest and concern. As <strong>the</strong><br />

<strong>European</strong> Union is <strong>the</strong> <strong>Philippines</strong>’ largest export market and also its Number One foreign direct investor,<br />

it needs to be borne in mind that <strong>the</strong> PCA is not a Free Trade and investment Agreement (FTA) and does<br />

not include specific trade concessions on ei<strong>the</strong>r party.<br />

Regional and global economic and trade integration has progressed fast in 2010, notably in <strong>the</strong> ASEAN<br />

region; against this background FTA negotiations between <strong>the</strong> EU and Indonesia, Singapore, and Malaysia have commenced, but <strong>the</strong> EU is also willing to<br />

engage in bilateral FTA negotiations with fur<strong>the</strong>r ASEAN countries, that are willing and able to negotiate an ambitious FTA, including <strong>the</strong> <strong>Philippines</strong>. The EU<br />

has recorded <strong>the</strong> Philippine’s interest in <strong>the</strong> exploration <strong>of</strong> an FTA with <strong>the</strong> EU, as confirmed by Trade Secretary Domingo to <strong>the</strong> EU’s Trade Commissioner De<br />

Gucht in August 2010: it would be beneficial if progress were made in scoping <strong>the</strong> relevant areas <strong>of</strong> FTA negotiations.<br />

I hope that indeed we can build on <strong>the</strong> success <strong>of</strong> our PCA negotiations in carrying forward this dynamics also to eventual FTA negotiations.<br />

In 2010, we have also achieved considerable progress in <strong>the</strong> work <strong>of</strong> <strong>the</strong> EU Market Access Team (MAT) in <strong>the</strong> <strong>Philippines</strong> - toge<strong>the</strong>r with <strong>the</strong> ECCP, EU<br />

Commercial Counselors and o<strong>the</strong>r EU chambers <strong>of</strong> commerce in <strong>the</strong> country,. The MAT has developed a strong partnership <strong>of</strong> EU stakeholders, aimed at better<br />

addressing market access concerns in <strong>the</strong> country. The most high pr<strong>of</strong>ile case so far involves <strong>the</strong> excise taxes on distilled spirits, which <strong>the</strong> EU considers to be<br />

discriminatory and <strong>the</strong>refore in breach <strong>of</strong> international trade rules. While <strong>the</strong> EU had raised <strong>the</strong> issue repeatedly in recent years without success, <strong>the</strong>re was no<br />

recourse but to elevate <strong>the</strong> matter to <strong>the</strong> WTO.<br />

I and my colleagues in <strong>the</strong> EU Delegation remain fully committed in helping to increase, streng<strong>the</strong>n and deepen Philippine-EU bilateral economic, trade and<br />

investment relations. In so doing, I greatly appreciate <strong>the</strong> support by and collaboration with ECCP, its members, and partners to expand two-way trade and<br />

investment flows.<br />

I <strong>of</strong>fer to all <strong>of</strong> you my best wishes for every success in our shared endeavors in 2011.<br />

<strong>the</strong> eccp


The year 2010 marked a new beginning for <strong>the</strong> Filipino people as <strong>the</strong> country elected President Benigno<br />

S. Aquino III as <strong>the</strong> new CEO <strong>of</strong> <strong>Philippines</strong> Inc. ECCP is delighted with this change and considers this a<br />

positive development for moving <strong>the</strong> country forward and projecting a favorable international image for<br />

<strong>the</strong> country.<br />

With <strong>the</strong> campaign slogan “No Corruption, No Poverty”, President Aquino now has <strong>the</strong> daunting task to<br />

ensure that corruption is reduced significantly if not eliminated and that civil society, government and <strong>the</strong><br />

private sector join hands in this campaign to clean <strong>the</strong> ranks.<br />

The <strong>European</strong> <strong>Chamber</strong> <strong>of</strong> <strong>Commerce</strong> <strong>of</strong> <strong>the</strong> <strong>Philippines</strong> (ECCP) is pleased to contribute in this regard<br />

through our Integrity Initiative campaign which we started in 2009.<br />

We have been active in convincing <strong>the</strong> government to level <strong>the</strong> playing field so that fair market conditions<br />

are created. We have tackled <strong>the</strong> issues on smuggling, corruption at <strong>the</strong> national and local government<br />

levels, government’s disrespect for <strong>the</strong> sanctity <strong>of</strong> contracts, unfair business practices, lack <strong>of</strong> transparency<br />

in bidding, among o<strong>the</strong>rs.<br />

At <strong>the</strong> same time, we looked at <strong>the</strong> responsibility <strong>of</strong> <strong>the</strong> private sector and called on businesses and<br />

individuals to pay <strong>the</strong> right level <strong>of</strong> taxes, to respect regulations, to provide <strong>the</strong> right compensation and<br />

benefits to workers as well as ensure that employees work in a healthy environment, to guarantee that<br />

<strong>the</strong> products sold are safe and meet acceptable standards, and that business is not done at <strong>the</strong> expense<br />

<strong>of</strong> <strong>the</strong> environment.<br />

We are happy to receive support from Siemens last December 2010 for our Integrity Initiative campaign<br />

with <strong>the</strong> funding support for <strong>the</strong> SHINE Project or a Project for Streng<strong>the</strong>ning High-level commitment for<br />

Integrity initiatives and Nurturing collective action among Enterprises to create fair market conditions.<br />

Through this joint project with Makati Business Club, we are asking local and foreign enterprises to<br />

withdraw from <strong>the</strong> dance floor <strong>of</strong> corruption and make a stand in support <strong>of</strong> integrity. We are encouraging<br />

companies to commit to implement Integrity standards and control measures in <strong>the</strong>ir own organizations<br />

as well as to embed processes and systems that will detect and address integrity issues within companies.<br />

At <strong>the</strong> end <strong>of</strong> <strong>the</strong> day, we wish to see a collective action <strong>of</strong> enterprises with integrity and working<br />

towards to create fair market conditions in <strong>the</strong> country.<br />

We can only say that in 2011, ECCP will continue to aggressively support this Integrity campaign to create<br />

a better environment for doing business in <strong>the</strong> <strong>Philippines</strong>. We call on all ECCP members to join hands<br />

with us in standing tall for integrity.<br />

ECCP Annual Report 2010<br />

By Henry J. Schumacher<br />

THe BuSIneSS enVIROnMenT<br />

The year 2010 ushered in a new hope for <strong>the</strong> <strong>Philippines</strong><br />

with <strong>the</strong> election <strong>of</strong> President Benigno<br />

Simeon C. Aquino III. The first ever automated<br />

national elections that led to a quick and credible<br />

election results has catapulted a leader seen as<br />

<strong>the</strong> choice <strong>of</strong> <strong>the</strong> people. This was so far <strong>the</strong> only<br />

election in recent history that yielded highly acceptable<br />

results to <strong>the</strong> satisfaction <strong>of</strong> majority <strong>of</strong><br />

<strong>the</strong> Filipino voters.<br />

President Aquino III won by a good margin signifying<br />

<strong>the</strong> people’s approval for his leadership and<br />

support for his campaign to root out corruption so<br />

that poverty can be reduced if not eradicated. His<br />

campaign slogan “Kung Walang Corrupt, Walang<br />

Mahirap!” (translated as “If <strong>the</strong>re is no corruption,<br />

<strong>the</strong>re is no poverty”) worked its way to <strong>the</strong> hearts<br />

<strong>of</strong> <strong>the</strong> voters and became <strong>the</strong> main focus <strong>of</strong> <strong>the</strong><br />

President when he took over <strong>the</strong> government.<br />

The new Aquino Administration is faced with a big<br />

challenge to turn <strong>the</strong> image <strong>of</strong> <strong>the</strong> country around<br />

and to steer economic development in a direction<br />

that will bring forth social equity.<br />

At present, <strong>the</strong> country suffers from weak freedom<br />

in business, investment, property rights, and even<br />

in fighting corruption. In <strong>the</strong> 2010 Index <strong>of</strong> Economic<br />

Freedom, <strong>the</strong> Washington-based think tank Heritage<br />

Foundation put <strong>the</strong> country in 109th place.<br />

The 2010 Index covers 183 countries, ranking 179<br />

<strong>of</strong> <strong>the</strong>m with an economic freedom score based on<br />

10 measures <strong>of</strong> economic openness, regulatory efficiency,<br />

rule <strong>of</strong> law, and competitiveness. The basic<br />

principles <strong>of</strong> economic freedom emphasized in<br />

european chamber <strong>of</strong> commerce <strong>of</strong> <strong>the</strong> philippines<br />

<strong>the</strong> Index are individual empowerment, equitable<br />

treatment, and <strong>the</strong> promotion <strong>of</strong> competition.<br />

Some highlights <strong>of</strong> <strong>the</strong> report are:<br />

• The <strong>Philippines</strong> ranked 20th among 41<br />

countries in <strong>the</strong> Asia-Pacific region, and<br />

its overall score is slightly below <strong>the</strong><br />

world and regional averages. With an<br />

economic freedom score <strong>of</strong> 56.3, <strong>the</strong><br />

Philippine economy is <strong>the</strong> 109th freest in<br />

<strong>the</strong> 2010 Index. It scored 0.4 point lower<br />

than last year’s, reflecting small reductions<br />

in monetary freedom and freedom from<br />

corruption.<br />

• “The government’s failure to do anything<br />

substantial to liberalize <strong>the</strong> economy has<br />

set back efforts to attract much-needed<br />

foreign investment in basic industries and


infrastructure, and <strong>the</strong> <strong>Philippines</strong> continues<br />

a long slide from being one <strong>of</strong> Asia’s richest<br />

economies to being one <strong>of</strong> its poorest.<br />

The economy relies heavily on emigrants’<br />

remittances equivalent to about 10 percent<br />

<strong>of</strong> GDP”.<br />

• The index also showed a weak judicial<br />

system vulnerable to political influence.<br />

“The judicial system is weak. Judges<br />

are nominally independent, but some are<br />

corrupt or have been appointed strictly<br />

for political reasons. Organized crime is a<br />

serious problem. Despite some progress,<br />

enforcement <strong>of</strong> intellectual property rights<br />

remains problematic” .<br />

• It added that <strong>the</strong> overall freedom to<br />

start, operate, and close a business is<br />

limited under <strong>the</strong> <strong>Philippines</strong>’ regulatory<br />

environment. Starting a business takes an<br />

average <strong>of</strong> 52 days, compared to <strong>the</strong> world<br />

average <strong>of</strong> 35 days. Closing a business can<br />

be a difficult and lengthy process.<br />

• The government influences prices through<br />

state-owned enterprises and utilities and<br />

controls <strong>the</strong> prices <strong>of</strong> electricity distribution,<br />

water, telecommunications, and most<br />

transportation services, <strong>the</strong> report said.<br />

Price ceilings are usually imposed on basic<br />

commodities only in emergencies, and<br />

presidential authority to impose controls<br />

to check inflation or ease social tension is<br />

rarely exercised.<br />

• Corruption is perceived as pervasive.<br />

The <strong>Philippines</strong> ranked 141st out <strong>of</strong> 179<br />

countries in Transparency International’s<br />

Corruption Perceptions Index for 2008, a<br />

decline from 2007. A culture <strong>of</strong> corruption<br />

is long-standing, and enforcement <strong>of</strong> anticorruption<br />

laws is inconsistent.<br />

ECCP is taking an active role to push for integrity<br />

development and create a level playing field in<br />

business and a fair socio-economic environment in<br />

all sectors <strong>of</strong> society. It is working with <strong>the</strong> economic<br />

managers <strong>of</strong> <strong>the</strong> Aquino Administration to<br />

provide new directions in <strong>the</strong> country’s industrial<br />

development by promoting and developing fast<br />

growth industries dubbed as <strong>the</strong> “7 big winners’<br />

in order to bring in <strong>the</strong> much needed foreign direct<br />

investments and to create more jobs that will help<br />

alleviate poverty. And it is helping build a more<br />

lasting and stronger foundation for economic de-<br />

velopment by undertaking programs and activities<br />

on sustainable development.<br />

ECCP will continue to push <strong>the</strong> initiatives it started<br />

in 2010 and will actively develop new ones in 2011<br />

to make <strong>the</strong> <strong>Philippines</strong> competitive and an attractive<br />

partner for Europe and o<strong>the</strong>r countries..<br />

eCCP events<br />

ECCP provided members with networking opportunities<br />

through membership events that build<br />

contacts and streng<strong>the</strong>n business relationships.<br />

The <strong>Chamber</strong> also provided platforms that bring<br />

members in a closer dialog with <strong>European</strong> and<br />

Philippine government <strong>of</strong>ficials as well as to encourage<br />

discussion on outstanding issues that<br />

affect <strong>the</strong>ir business. ECCP continued to put more<br />

emphasis on organizing specialized forums and executive<br />

roundtables to address <strong>the</strong> specific needs<br />

<strong>of</strong> members as well as to pursue more effectively<br />

advocacy concerns.<br />

One <strong>of</strong> <strong>the</strong> major ECCP events was <strong>the</strong> 1ST Philippine<br />

Program which encourages companies to enhance<br />

<strong>the</strong>ir competitiveness through energy efficiency<br />

measures. ECCP is seen as <strong>the</strong> lead business organization<br />

with regard to <strong>the</strong> sustainable energy<br />

in <strong>the</strong> country. (www.eefphilippines.com)<br />

Special workshops continued in 2010 particularly<br />

on flexible work arrangements and security <strong>of</strong><br />

tenure. ECCP was well-supported by <strong>the</strong> Dept. <strong>of</strong><br />

Labor and Employment in ensuring that private<br />

sector concerns are heard.<br />

Roundtables on <strong>the</strong> integrity initiative, benchmarking,<br />

business competitiveness, creating breakthroughs,<br />

among o<strong>the</strong>rs were organized by ECCP<br />

BACKGROUND<br />

Accent Pieces Exports, Inc. was established in 1986 with<br />

a stylized Japanese doll using handmade paper as its<br />

primary material. The doll’s enigmatic appeal created<br />

such a stir in <strong>the</strong> global market, that <strong>the</strong> product line soon<br />

expanded to decorative items and Christmas decor.<br />

Accent Pieces differentiates itself from <strong>the</strong>ir competition<br />

through designing and manufacturing an entire design<br />

concept. Its design team forecast, conceptualized and<br />

creates all <strong>the</strong> prototypes. It takes quite a brainstorming<br />

session to finalize a whole collection that may begin with<br />

a half a year <strong>of</strong> planning and reaserch and culminated<br />

with a month <strong>of</strong> extensive creative work. Accents boast<br />

a showroom displaying all <strong>the</strong>ir designs dating back in<br />

1986 until today. Accent Pieces can satisfy <strong>the</strong> diverse<br />

design and manufacturing needs <strong>of</strong> all <strong>the</strong>ir international<br />

clientele.<br />

In 1994, <strong>the</strong> company earned <strong>the</strong> GOLDEN SHELL<br />

AWARD for EXPORT EXCELLENCE and for its pioneering<br />

efforts that spawned a new segment in handicrafts. The<br />

company prides itself on pioneering <strong>the</strong> use <strong>of</strong> recycled<br />

and converted paper to produce <strong>the</strong> collectible and o<strong>the</strong>r<br />

accessories<br />

to produce miniature items and asked <strong>the</strong>m to produce<br />

fine brass accessories using <strong>the</strong> silver solder wires. He<br />

was so impressed by <strong>the</strong>ir craftsmanship that his orders<br />

kept on increasing. With a wide expertise in fine brass<br />

fabrication, <strong>the</strong> company ventured in <strong>the</strong> fabrication <strong>of</strong><br />

intricate wrought iron furniture for <strong>the</strong> same company. For<br />

nine years, <strong>the</strong> small company was one <strong>of</strong> <strong>the</strong> fines subcontractor<br />

<strong>of</strong> a big furniture exporter in Cebu.<br />

However, <strong>the</strong> couple wanted to make a name <strong>of</strong> <strong>the</strong>ir<br />

own and decided to make <strong>the</strong>ir own products. With only<br />

a few accessory items, <strong>the</strong>y approached DTI in 1997 and<br />

local exhibition where <strong>the</strong>y met <strong>the</strong>ir very first foreign<br />

buyer. During this exhibition, <strong>the</strong>y won two awards - Best<br />

Booth Designer and Best Dressed Booth. And after that<br />

encounter, and within five years, <strong>the</strong> couple through <strong>the</strong>ir<br />

company Arden Classic began exporting high-end furniture<br />

and furnishing products to USA, Middle East, and Europe.<br />

Arden was awarded <strong>the</strong> President Ramon Magsaysay<br />

costs. The highest and most prestigious award given by<br />

ACTIVITIES/SERVICES<br />

Treatment and Management <strong>of</strong> Diseases<br />

A<br />

AEI <strong>of</strong>fers comprehensive eye examinations and diagnostic<br />

checks to detect problems, from single ailments to<br />

potentialls blinding diseases. Treatment options may<br />

include medications (oral, drops, or eye injections), laser<br />

procedures, or surgery.<br />

Cataractis a condition in which <strong>the</strong> lens <strong>of</strong> <strong>the</strong> eye<br />

becomes progressively opaque, causing blurring <strong>of</strong> vision,<br />

usually in older people. AEI performs modern cataract<br />

surgery under eyedrop anes<strong>the</strong>sia- no stitches, no<br />

confinement. We give our patients a choice <strong>of</strong> <strong>the</strong> latest<br />

intraocular lenses (IOL) from <strong>the</strong> U.S. and Europe, which<br />

help restore good distance and near vision, and correct<br />

astigmatism.<br />

Glaucoma is characterized by increased pressure in <strong>the</strong><br />

eyeball, causing progressive damage <strong>of</strong> <strong>the</strong> optic nerve<br />

that can lead to irreversible blindness if not treated right<br />

away. A comprehensive checkup can detect glaucoma<br />

early enough to save vision.<br />

Retinal Diseases include diabetic retinopathy, macular<br />

degeneration, retinal detachment, retinal vein occlusion,<br />

and macular holes. A complete examination with<br />

angiography and optical coherence tomography can<br />

diagnose <strong>the</strong>se conditions. AEI was <strong>the</strong> first in <strong>the</strong><br />

<strong>Philippines</strong> to introduce advanced medicines for macular<br />

degeneration, <strong>of</strong>fering better hope for patients to regain<br />

vision.<br />

Uveitis is a group <strong>of</strong> inflammatory eye disease that<br />

affect <strong>the</strong> middle layer <strong>of</strong> <strong>the</strong> eye called he uvea. It is <strong>the</strong><br />

fourth leading cause <strong>of</strong> blindness worlwide. AEI provides<br />

comprehensive diagnostic and <strong>the</strong>rapeutic treatments for<br />

this condition.<br />

LASIK (Refractive Laser Eye Surgery)<br />

AEI <strong>of</strong>fers an ideal lifestyle solution for those who want<br />

to get rid <strong>of</strong> <strong>the</strong>ir eyeglasses and contact lenses. LASIK is<br />

fast, safe and virtually painless. The entire procedure takes<br />

about five minutes per eye, and patients can return to <strong>the</strong>ir<br />

normal routine like working, reading and driving within<br />

one to two days. AEI specializes in Zyoptix customized<br />

and aspheric LASIK, which are performed by a full-time,<br />

dedicated eye surgeon.<br />

Pediatric Ophthalmology<br />

Children also have vision problems but some may be<br />

unable to communicate this to <strong>the</strong>ir parents. Such<br />

conditions, if left untreated, may permanently limit a<br />

child’s visual potential. Bringing a child to AEI for his first<br />

complete eye examination may be one <strong>of</strong> a parent’s most<br />

important decisions.<br />

BACKGROUND<br />

BG Group is a rapidly growing energy business with<br />

operations in over 25 countries across 5 continents. It<br />

continues to play a significant role in <strong>the</strong> development <strong>of</strong><br />

<strong>the</strong> <strong>Philippines</strong> natural gas market, as it moves away from<br />

a dependence on imported oil. In <strong>the</strong> <strong>Philippines</strong> we are<br />

focused on <strong>the</strong> downstream sector <strong>of</strong> <strong>the</strong> gas chain with<br />

interests in two gas-fired power generation plants, Santa<br />

Rita and San Lorenzo, located on <strong>the</strong> island <strong>of</strong> Luzon, 80<br />

km south <strong>of</strong> Manila. Toge<strong>the</strong>r, <strong>the</strong>se two power plants play<br />

a crucial role in utilizing gas from <strong>the</strong> country’s strategic<br />

Malampaya Gas to Power project, which represents <strong>the</strong><br />

largest single industrial investment in <strong>the</strong> country’s history.<br />

In response to <strong>the</strong> needs <strong>of</strong> <strong>the</strong> <strong>Philippines</strong> economy, BG<br />

Group continues to seek fur<strong>the</strong>r commercial investment<br />

opportunities. In particular, we believe that <strong>the</strong>re is future<br />

potential for additional gas-fired power stations, gas<br />

transmission pipelines and distribution infrastructure using<br />

BACKGROUND<br />

CATALINA EMBROIDERIES was incorporated in 1997. We<br />

started as an embroidery company, subcontracting for<br />

<strong>the</strong> garments industry, using computerized embroidery<br />

machines. Prior to this, we’ve had 12 years experience<br />

in <strong>the</strong> fashion accessories business. Due to minimalism,<br />

<strong>the</strong> company shifted its direction. After a year <strong>of</strong><br />

subcontracting, we again joined <strong>the</strong> export industry. Using<br />

handloomed abaca material, and with our expertise in<br />

embroidery, we started with cushion covers, table runners,<br />

placemats. Slowly, we evolved, and added lamps, vases,<br />

mirrors into our lines. Now, we have wall decors, planters,<br />

accent tables and chairs. Today, our mainstay is our lamps.<br />

We are CE and TUV-UL registered. Using local indigenous<br />

materials like coco shell, sea shell, scrap wood, abaca<br />

fibers, pandan, sea grass, and nito vines, we have created<br />

lamps worthy to be placed in homes all over <strong>the</strong> world.<br />

Many <strong>of</strong> our design oriented lamps have made it to <strong>the</strong><br />

show rooms <strong>of</strong> Neiman Marcus, Emilio Robba <strong>of</strong> Paris,<br />

Elite <strong>of</strong> Italy, West Elm <strong>of</strong> <strong>the</strong> William Sonoma group,<br />

Hermon and Hermon <strong>of</strong> Melbourne. We are proud <strong>of</strong> our<br />

design, our workmanship, and our quality. With this focus<br />

in <strong>the</strong> forefront <strong>of</strong> our organization, we will continue to<br />

manufacture and supply <strong>the</strong> world with beautiful lamps, as<br />

well as o<strong>the</strong>r home goods.<br />
