The MNCCI is Bicol’s biggest local chamber which has been installed in the Hall of Fame of the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI) for having been selected as an outstanding local chamber of trade and commerce for three consecutive years throughout the country, an honor that was earned so far by only two other chambers, such as the chambers of commerce of Cebu and Davao.
Next month, the MNCCI, along with the City Government of Naga and other partner agencies from both the public and private sectors, will be jointly hosting the 4th edition of the Bicol Business Month (originally Bicol Business Week that it was for 10 years) and the 14th annual Halyao Awards that give tribute to the year’s outstanding Bicolano businesspersons from the region’s six provinces and outstanding young Bicolano entrepreneur. jbp
