Microsoft to host – President Aquino in APEC-CEO Summit

MANILA, Philippines — President Benigno Aquino III will be hosted by Microsoft's Chief Research and Strategy Officer Craig Mundie when the former attends the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Summit to be held in Honolulu, Hawaii from November 10 to 12.

President Aquino is the only head of state to be invited to attend the Asia-Pacific's premier business event, drawing thousands of economic and business leaders from around the region and beyond.

In a press briefing held in MalacaƱang Friday, newly appointed Foreign Affairs Undersecretary for International Economic Relations Laura del Rosario said the Philippines has been chosen by Microsoft as the only APEC member economy to attend an open forum with top CEOs from other member countries.

The details of Microsoft's interest in the country remain sketchy but it is generally believed that the software giant wants a stake in the Philippines' IT infrastructure.

President Aquino will also lead the Philippine delegation at the APEC Leaders’ Week in Honolulu, Hawaii from November 8 to 13.

Joining him in the Philippine delegation are Foreign Affairs Secretary Albert F. del Rosario, Trade and Industry Secretary Gregory L. Domingo and Finance Secretary Cesar V. Purisima.

Hosted by the United States, APEC 2011 is working towards the achievement of a "seamless regional economy.”

At the Concluding Senior Officials’ Meeting and the Ministerial Meetings leading up to the Leaders’ Meeting, the Philippine delegation will present and push for the Philippine positions in line with the three priorities of APEC 2011.

This includes strengthening regional economic integration and expanding trade by advancing "next-generation" trade and investment issues; promoting green growth and fostering job creation in green industries; and expanding regulatory cooperation and advancing regulatory convergence.

At the 19th APEC Economic Leaders’ Meeting (AELM) on November 13, the Leaders are free to engage in the most relevant issues facing them. The issues notionally set for the meeting include growth and jobs, regulatory reform and competitiveness, and energy efficiency and energy security.

President Aquino will also participate in the APEC Business Advisory Council (ABAC) Dialogue with leaders, which is a key feature of the AELM.

This dialogue gives ABAC members the opportunity to meet with the APEC Leaders to discuss the entire year’s ABAC work program and to raise issues of pressing concern to the business community.

ABAC Philippines is represented by A. Magsaysay Inc. President and CEO Doris Magsaysay Ho, Jollibee Foods Corporation Chairman and CEO Tony Tan Caktiong, and Ayala Corporation Chairman and CEO Jaime Augusto Zobel de Ayala.
