CEBU, Philippines – The Canadian Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines (CanCham) has set the third leg of its outbound trade mission on October 18 to 25 this year, highlighting the promotion of Information and Communication Technology industry of the Philippines.

CanCham is encouraging ICT players to participate in the trade mission to further expand their business identity and establish traction in the Canadian market as well as support development of business partnerships between the Philippines and Canadian companies.

A briefing on the 8-day mission in Cebu is set on September 4, 2015, at the CanCham-Cebu office located at Insular Building at the Cebu Business Park.

In a statement, CanCham said the mission is aimed at inviting the owners and senior executives of Philippine companies, specifically those that are into ICT industry, including small and medium enterprises.

CanCham calls on ICT related companies seeking growth opportunities significantly in the fields of animation, game development, IT Mobile Apps, Software Development, IT support and services, and emerging sector like automotive, construction, as well as research and development.

Delegates will have a chance to attend conferences with exhibits and demonstration of the most advanced technologies driving ICT initiatives at all levels of government in Canada and other countries.

The CanCham statement further stated that the main focus of the trade mission is ICT. However, it is also open to participants interested in education and training, looking for ways how to "internationally" bridge the gap through partnerships and accreditation with recognized Canadian schools and institutions.

Meanwhile, aside from ICT,  CanCham-Cebu is also pushing for the promotion of Cebu's medical tourism, real estate, and education educational exchanges.

CanCham-Cebu chairman Felix Tiukinhoy said that Canada has become one of the important markets for Cebuano traders across industries, and it is timely for the local chapter to craft its own advocacy that will address the local-centric issues.
