Atty. Mondez articulated useful market trends, key issues, and legal considerations in the Philippines.

On the other hand, FedEx remains committed to provide SMEs with services to expand their business on a global scale. Ms. Anne Liwag-Anawat explained with useful updates on how FedEx categorizes Philippine shipments according to different requirements such as weight, value threshold, customs/local charges, and usage. FedEx, moreover, proves its dedication as the largest express transportation company towards its customers.

Indeed, these perspectives will help our British company exporters to get to know the market in the Philippines and how they can move forward in networking their business potential with retailers and manufacturers in the country.
