MANILA, Philippines — The Center for Global Best Practices will host a pioneering program titled, “Best Practices Guide on How to Import Goods to the Philippines” on Aug. 9 at the EDSA Shangri-La Hotel, Mandaluyong City.

The seminar will provide participants a comprehensive step-by-step guide on the whole importation process in the Philippines – from applying for an import license to ensuring the safety and security of the delivery and arrival of your goods.
