Our acclaimed networking event, L’Aperitivo Italiano gets bigger and better to start off its 2017 series. Guests had the chance to explore Italy as we presented L’Aperitivo Networking Night: The Night of the Pastas. It was a sparkling night where we delighted our guests, among other dishes, and appetizers, with 20 different kinds of original pasta – one for each region of Italy.

We are also honored to have had the presence of Ambassador Franz Jessen, Delegation Head of the European Union to the Philippines, who gave a message on the EU and the Philippines’ strong relationship, especially when it comes to business and trade. Philippine Competition Commission Chairman, Mr. Arsenio Balisacan, for his part, shared a brief introduction on what the commission is doing to improve the business environment of the country. Other VIPs and special guests include Mr. Lorens Ziller, Vice President and Executive Director of the Chamber, Mr. Luca Vezzaro, Vice President of the Chamber, Mr. Gabriel Dayre of the European Delegation, Mr. Andrea Mastellone.
