ForeIDorJ This is the second publication of a series of books which the author intends to publish and dedicated to immortalize those who are responsible fot the building of the strong pillars upon which our commerce and industry rest. The country, as a whole, is greatly harrassed with economic difficulties, and the businessmen and economists of all classes have awakened to the urgent necessity of encouraging national whole hearted cooperation and good-will. Therefore in consonance with the above motive, the (}bject of this book lies in the promotion of national as well as international trade, and acquainting the businessmen of the nation by providing this pictorial compilation. This is also intended to be of practical use and assistance to the businessmen of the country in giving them a better understanding of the present day problems in business. It will bring them closer with each other, and acquaint themselves with the situation that each one faces or is surmounting. It WQuld foster among' themselves the spirit of cooperation seeking to help each other for the common good and advancement of the Philippine commerce. It will also serve to enlighten the dark spot that lies between them for in this olume they are so placed side by side with each other irrespective of their anks in the co~nmercial world. With such motives in mind, the Editoll and his staff dedicated an illimitable time, so we feel confident that, a book of this nature will prove invaluable to the businessmen as well as to the country. The advertisements appearing in the BUILDERS OF PHILIPPINE COMMERCE are those of the most reliable concerns. They therefore constitute highly valuable pages for those wishing to extend business conneC'tions. Patronize them, and in so answering these ads please make special mention of the BUILDERS OF PHILIPPINE COMMERCE. In the preparation of this volume, acknowledgment is due to several persons and organizations whose names they prefer not to make public, for their unfailing kindness and encouragements, and without whose suggestions this would have not been as valuable as it is; and to the TVT Publications whose datas for the Chambers of Commerce are appearing herein whose willing help is responsible for the major part of the whole pUblication. In spite of our efforts to be accurate, errors may have crept into the text, for which we beg the indulgence of the reader. If the book should impress upon the general reader the conviction that immortalizing our businessmen and emulating their examples are among the most important duties they should do, then we shall feel fully gratified for the labors we have spent to have made this volume a reality.

AMERICAN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE The American Chamber of Commerce, for the last 15 years, has been an important facto'r in matters affecting local commerce and industry. It has made its influence felt deeply in the local community during its comparative short existence. The American Chamber of Commerce has closely identified itself with all trade movements that have a direct hearing on both the Filipino and American inte'rests. When there was agitation to restrict the free importation of Philippine products to the United States in lu31, it waged an extensive campaign against the agitation th'r ough the media of more than 4,000 county and city daily newspapers in all the states of the Union. It released in July 1933 the first copies of the U. S. administration's new Farm Relief Act which had been keenly awaited here. In cooperation with local chambers of commerce, it has, time and again worked against all plans and measures which it believed would work disastrously on all interested parties. Fo'r instance, in 1931 it fought against the labeling of Philippine products intended for sale in foreign countries. Through its official organ, the American Chamber of Commerce Journal, it brings to the attention of the reading public all things affecting PhilippineAmerican trade and commerce. Its past presidents include such well~known Manila business men as Leo K. Cotterman, H. L. Heath, T. H. Smith, Horace B. Pond, Paul E. Meyer and H. M. Cavender. Its directorate last year was composed of Howard M. Cavender, President.; Kenneth B. Day, Vice-President; J. L. Headington, Treasurer; John R. Wilson, Secretary; James C. Ross, General Counsel; and J. C Rockwell, C. S. Salmon, P. A. Meyer, Verne E. Miller and E. M. Grimm, members.

PHILIPPIN

CHAMBER OF COMMERCE

It has been aptly said that to write the eccnomic history of the Philippines of the last thirty years is tantamount to writing the history of the Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines. For this society, which is devoted to the promotion and defense of the Filipino interests, has, since 1903, taken active part in all movements directed towa'r d the economic emancipation of the Filipino people.

The chamber was formally organized on July 19, 1903, by a group of public !'pirited Filipino merchants gathered at No. 33, Plaza de Cervantes. On July 26 of the Sl.'.me year, in a gathering at the second floor of the plant of Juan Rodriguez, in what was then identified as No.1, San Nicolas street, the first Board of Directors was elected, composed of Messrs. Fran cisco Reyes, presidp.nt; Ricardo Aguado, secretary-treasurer; and Teodoro R. Yangco, Luis Hidalgo, Vicente N. Zomoza and Faustino Lichauco, members. L

The rise of the Philippine Chamber of Commerce has also witnessed the unprecedented rise to prominence in the local business world of many Filipino business mer !Who have been its presidents at some time or other since its organization, as witness the following: Vicente T. Fernandez, Pio V. Corpus, Isaac Barza. Gonzalo Puyat, Leopoldo A. Aguinaldo, Arsenio N. Luz, and others. The accomplishments of each of these men are too well known to be enumerated here. The present office'r s of the chamber are the following: Leopoldo R. Aguinaldo, president; Vicente Madrigal, vice-president: Pedro J. Ocampo, secretar~treasurer; and Vicente T . Fernandez, Gonzalo Puyat, Arsenio N . Luz, Toribio Teodoro, Aurelio Pe'riquet, Pedro J. Campos, bominador P. Ambrosio, Benito Razon, and Vicente Villanueva, members of the board of directors.

SPANISH ~HAMBER OF COMMERCE The Spanish Chamber of Commerce, the oldest of its kind in the Philip~ pines, first came into existence in 1887. Then known as the Official Chamber of Conunerce of Manila, its office was first situated in No.4 Marquez street. Its first board of directors was composed of the foll owing: Don Joaquin Mo Elizalde, President; Don Gonzalo Tuason, Vice President; Don Jose Ma. Echeita, Treasurer; Don Joaquin Sta. Marina, General Secrt;tary; and Don Pedro Roxas, Don Francisco Godinez, Don Ramon Mortera, Don Salvador Chofre, and Don Jacobo Zobel, members. Because it was o'rganized during the troublous period of Philippine history, the chamber died a natural death. It was not till July, 1899 that a similar organization was created. It then assumed its present name, Spanish Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines. The first board of directors of the new chamber was elected in a general assembly held on July 16, 1899. They were: Don Eduardo Carceller, Presi~ d.}nt; Don Secundino Mendozana, Vice-President; Don Antonio Guamis, Treasurer; Don Matias Garcia, General Secretary; Don Alvaro de Lis, Vic~ Secretary; and Don Jacinto C il, Don Rafael Calvo, Don Jose Robles Lahesa, Don Saturnino Roy, Don Jose Beltran and Don Roberto Rodriguez Berriz, members. In the same year, 1899 the chamber moved to a new place situated in No. 3 Carri('do street, and in 1902 the site of the chamber was transferred to the place now occupied by the Casino Espanol, the lot of which was owned路 by the Messrs. Perez Samanillo. When in Hl07 the building known as the Casa de Espana, located at the corner of Taft Avenue and San Luis streets, was inaugurated, the Chamber moved to it. The number of members when the chamber was first o~ ganized, was 345, a figure which at present is considerably reduced due to the diminishing number of Spanish residents in the islands. The chamber does not work only for the interests of its members, but also for the interests of both the Spanish and Philippine communities. 11

AMBER OF COMMERCE

The Philippine Chinese 路 General Chamber of Commerce has played a great role in the eccnomic development of the islands, pariicula'r ly in the expansion of domestic trade and industries.

FRENCH CHAMBER OF COMMERCE When the World War was over, France had to consider all measures tending t'l the return to normalcy, to the developing of her trade, of her industries, which had been greatly handicapped during the four years through lack of labor and material. Up to the beginning of the war, the French overseas comme'r ce was steadily increasing, without any particular efforts on the part of producers to develop the sale of their merchandise. In 1918, it was different, most of the countries who had been in the war, were again in the field to conquer again their former markets and, II po ~sible, new ones, and it was necessary to use the goodwill of all tradesmen to reach the desired object. With this purpose in view, the French business community in the Philippines, desirous to fill he'r part in the reLorganization and the development of the French oversea trade, and also to make Philippine products known in France, decided to crea)e the French Chamber of Commerce in the Philippine Islands. The society was founded on July 25, 1919, with the sole purpose in view to be of assistance to France and to the Philippine Islands, in creating in both countries mutually agreeable and p'r ofitable business relations. Through the efforts of organization, French goods have become truly valued in the Philippine Islands, while Philippine produCts have now a steady demand in France. The exhibition in Paris, a few years ago, met with remarkable success, and one can notice that from that date, there has been a steadily progressive increase in the business relations between both countries. Since her creation, the French Chamber of Commerce has been presided by Mr. Leopoldo Kahn, who is well-known in these Islands . .

The expanding business interests of the Japanese in the Philippines, necessitated last year the establishment of a business organization which would form the nucleus of whatever commercial activities the local Japanese business men may undertake. In February, 1934, therefore, the Japan Chamber of Commerce was born. Previous to the organization of this body, most of the business enterprises of the Japanese in the islands were handled individually by the Japanese merchants, with the cooperatkn of the Japanese Association of Manila. These activities are at present being taken care of by the J apane:se Chamber of Commerce. Well-known Japanese business men and leading Japanese merchants were responsible for its organization. Among these were the following members of the first committee which directed the activities of the chamber last year: S. Dazai, m:mag-er of the Yokohama Specie Bank; Y. Morokuma, president of the Japanese Association of Manila; N. Nakamura, vice-president of the same association; S. Ikeda and K. Yamazaki. This year witnessed some changes in the composition of the committee. Messrs. Susuki and Kawamura now occupy the post vacated by K. Yamazaki and S. Ikeda, who are at present in Japan. The Japanese Chamber of Commerce is under the auspices of the following Japanese business houses in the city of Manila: Daido Boeki Kaisha, Mitsui Bussan Kaisha, Mitsubishi Shoji Kaisha, Ohta Development Co., and Yokohama Specie Bank. Because of its youth, the chamber's accomplishment can not as yet be compared with those of older ones like the Philippine and Chinese chambers of commerce.

GERMAN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE The German Chamber of Commerce of the Philippine Islands was incorporated on July 6, 1025. The question naturally arises: What are the reasons and aims that prompted the German ccmmunity to es.tablish a chamber of comme'r ce? In the first place, it is incumbent upen a chamber of commerce to gather the opinions of its members, to sift and judge them, and, in furtherance of trade, to direct them to such parties as are conce"rned. The main objective behind the organization of the German Chamber of Commerce in the Phil路 ipines, however, was to let the German business community get into more intimate touch with the local comme'r cial and governmental circles, besides establishing, through the i termediary of the Ostasiatischer Verein, a regular connection with the Germ n commercial and government authorities. These we're important enough reasons to warrant the creation of the German Chamber of Commerce in the Philippines, because its intermediary as an official corporation must naturally carry more weight than individual persons or firms can mobilize. Shortly after its inauguration, this chamber, therefore, took steps to foster friendly relations with the other existing local chambers of commerce by offering cooperation. The German Chamber of Commerce has been in existence fOT more than 9 years now, during which time the following prominent personages in the local community have acted as presidents; Mr. W. Toehl-1925-19'26; Mr. E. Viegelmann-1927; Mr. O. Fra.uendorff-1928; Mr. E. Viegelmann-1929; Mr. F,. Danielsen-1930; Mr. M. Kummer-1931; and Mr. P. Baumann-1932-1934. ' The Gernla'n co'm munity in Manila being small, it js but natural that the membership of the German Chamber of Commerce is limited. As business will improve, as German merchants will increase their interest in this territory, their chamber will also expand and flourish for the benefit of all.

NTONIO GARRIDO SAIZ Founde?' and Gene'ral Ma?wger, PasCfY T路ranspo?路taf)ion Co., Inc. Born in Rosario, Binondo, Manila, P. I., on the 30th of September, 1898. Made his schoolings in San Juan ete Letran College and obtained the deg-ree of B.C.S. in 1913. After his graduation, he had been connected with several firms in Manila, working in different capacities; as stenographer in Parsons Hardware Co., assistallt bookkeeper in. San Juan de Dios Hospital; stenographer in Lacson & Lacson Law Office; in. charge of correspondence and Shipping Department and Exports Cigars to States of La Germinal Cigars & CigafL l'ettes Factory; liquidator in Manila Jockey Club; assistant stockkeeper of automobile spare parts in Manila Overland Sales Co.; and secretary and bookkeepe): of Bohemian Sporting Club. On September 15, 1927, he started a small business of his own with a meager capital of P3,000.00 with which he acquired two auto-trucks and a franchise to operate a transportation service bE:tween Pasay and Las Pinas, Rizal. Favorable ci'rcumstances sununed to his able management, assured a fast progress and fl-uitful result to his enterprise now converted into a big corporation under the name of "PASAY TRANSPORTATION COMP ANY". It is very gratifying to note, if we should compare its present state with that of the beginning, that this Company in a lapse of eight years has ama sed a fortune almost from nothing, as it is now operating with an authorized capital of P200,OOO.OO, with equipment more than 110 units and making a yearly gross income of 1P600,O'OO.00. Don Antonio deserves a prominent place in the gallery of business pe') :sonalities of the Philippines for his successful accomplishment, integrity, honesty and activity in his undertakingiO.
