The Philippine American Chamber of Commerce
New York, NY
For generations, U.S. business has enjoyed a friendly and beneficial relationship with the Republic of the Philippines. The Philippine American Chamber of Commerce, Inc. (PACC) has played a key role in that relationship for more than 90 years.
Founded in New York in March of 1920, the PACC was organized by Dr. H. Parker Willis, Editor for the Journal of Commerce. From this act, Dr. Willis created one of the oldest bilateral Chambers of Commerce in the United States. Since its inception, the PACC's mission is to foster and promote trade, commerce and investment, mutual welfare, and other business relations between the United States and the Philippines, and their respective peoples, and to serve those persons and organizations having financial, trade and professional interests in either or both countries.
The PACC serves as a prestigious forum for business executives and individuals who need to keep on top of the latest developments in the Philippines and more importantly, who require access to key decision-makers from the public and private sectors from both countries.
Past events have included meetings with the President of the Philippines, senior members of the Philippine Cabinet, the U.S. Ambassador to the Philippines, representatives of the U.S. government, and senior business executives from both U.S. and Philippine companies.
PACC is unique among U.S. based organizations doing business in today's global economy. Membership in the PACC allows you to become a part of an organization that has a strong familiarity with the Philippines available nowhere else. Our focus is strictly U.S.-Philippine relations. Many PACC members have long-standing relationships with the Philippines and; therefore, have extensive knowledge of the country, its people, its politics and business environment.
