Robinsons eyes 10 more provincial malls in 2 years

R

OBINSONS Land Corp. (RLC) is opening 10 new shopping centers located outside Metro Manila in the next two years, as it takes advantage of growth in the countryside. ROBINSONS Place Tagum, which will set to open next year, will feature six digital cinemas and over 400 tenants. -Illustration courtesy of Robinsons Malls. On the sidelines of the 4th Asia Pacific Real Estate Investment Summit in Parañaque City yesterday, R L C Vi c e - P r e s i d e n t for Leasing Lourdes T. Alano told reporters the Gokongwei-led property firm is unveiling five new malls and the expansion of two existing shopping centers next year. The expansion program will increase its gross leasable area (GLA) by around 11% from 1 million square meters this year. Likewise, RLC is adding five new malls to its portfolio in 2017. “The direction we have now is to open five malls, at least three to five malls a year, as a strategy,” Ms.

Alano said. In 2016, new Robinsons malls will be opened in Tagum, Davao del Norte; Iligan City; Jaro, Iloilo City; General Trias, Cavite and Cebu -- its third in the city. The company is als o expanding its malls in Ilocos Norte and Tacloban. The following year, the firm will launch shopping centers in Ormoc and Tuguegarao. Aside from these areas, Robinsons Land will also open malls in Valencia, Bukidnon; C a b a n c a l a n , Ne g r o s Occidental; Calbayog, Samar; Abucay, Tacloban; and Pavia, Iloilo. In some of these areas, Robinsons Land will have the first-mover advantage, as the real estate firm searches for growth in provincial areas given land constraints in Metro Manila, Ms. Alano said. She cited the company’s experience in Tacloban, one of its most successful green field markets. RLC was forced to close the Tacloban mall in 2013 af te r it w as s e ve rely damaged by supertyphoon “Yolanda” (international name: Haiyan). “We were the second

big player in Tacloban [after Gaisano]. It’s a green field market. It has proven to be successful. All the demographics have shown p osit ive sig ns. R ig ht now, the performance of our Tacloban mall has outperformed pre-Haiyan days. I guess it’s really the market that those

particular cities have,” Ms. Alano said. “When we acquire properties, we take a look at demographics, bank deposits, competitors, population of the market, accessibility of the location so, the interplay of those factors makes us decide to grow in these

markets,” she said. By 2019, RLC is aiming to double its net profit from the P4.7 billion pocketed in 2014, anchored on t he e x p ans i on of it s residential, shopping mall, office and hotel businesses. RLC is p ar t of JG

Summit Holdings, Inc., which has interests in Universal Robina Corp., JG Summit Petrochemical Corp., CP Air Holdings Inc., and Robinsons Bank Corp. The conglomerate also holds stakes in Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co. and Manila Electric Co.

Nature-inspired project visits Camiguin, brings in investment opportunities “Camiguin Island is just few hours away from Cagayan de Oro and it’s a perfect location for Pirmavera to create a healthy business relationship between CdO and Camiguin. We want to create partnerships with the active business sectors in the island since Primavera Residences is a good earning investment,” Ryan Fajardo, Internal Sales Head of Primavera Residences, said. L ast 19-22 Oc tob er, Primavera Residences Sales and Marketing team experienced Camiguin’s remarkable sunsets, astonishing bays, and its spectacular mountains, just in time for the province’s 36th Lanzones Festival. “Camiguin is known for its rich natural resources. Nature preservation has always been its top priority in promoting their island. The province of Camiguin and Primavera Residences have the same advocacy that we actively promote as we build natureinspired developments,” Cesar Stefan Rago, Public Relations and Marketing Officer of Pr i m av e r a R e s i d e n c e s , declared.

haven. Unspoilt beaches, powdery white sand, hot springs, majestic falls – name it.

Camiguin is especially wonderful to visit at this time of the year due to its annual Lanzones Festival. With a series of attractions lined up for the whole festival season, visitors are set to be amazed and fall deeper in love with the island. Bringing investment opportunities to the island Primavera Residences,

a multi-awarded mixed-use development in Cagayan de Oro, visited the island of Camiguin last October 19 – 22 with the event highlight held at Villa Paraiso Resort at Mamabajao, Camiguin to conduct series of events aimed at introducing the condominium property to Camiguinons. The event highlighted p o i nt s t o p r o s p e c t i v e investors from Camiguin as Primavera is considered a very safe investment, offers good returns in a growing alternative market, located in CdO which is as an emerging economy in the Philippines, and a rising travel and tourism destination in Northern Mindanao.

Red Ribbon launches ‘mas creamy sarap’ Polvoron for every Filipino home Everyone has that one special food item that brings memories of home. Arguably for Filipinos, this is the classic Polvoron. Red Ribbon, one of the biggest bakeshops in the Philippines, introduces its Classic Polvoron—a delightful treat that bursts a melt-inyou r- m out h s we e t n e s s and creaminess, leaving an aftertaste that’s sure to make Filipinos grab for more. According to Zinnia Rivera, general manager of Red Ribbon, the Classic Polvoron offers just the right amount of sweetness, with more “creamy sarap” goodness. “The creamy taste of Polvoron has an empowering

taste that brings Filipinos back to their childhood years,” Rivera said. “Since adults enjoy the rich, creamy taste of Polvoron, they now share their all-time favorite treat to their children. With Red Ribbon’s Classic Polvoron in place, children and adults alike will find our creamy variant more irresistible.” The Red Ribbon Classic Polvoron comes in singles, pack of eights (8s) and box of 16s. The price ranges for each pack is P10, P73 and P143, respectively. Rivera added, “What’s best about our Classic Polvoron is its sweet, creamy taste that’s perfect for mothers who want the best sweet treat for their

kids’ recess or for the ates and kuyas out there who are looking for that sweet ending after a scrumptious meal.” Aside from the Classic Polvoron, Red Ribbon also boasts its other Polvoron flavors. This includes the Pinipig Polvoron, which bursts with the same creamy goodness complemented by crunchy pinipig bits; and the Peanut Polvoron, which contains flavorful real peanut bits mixed with powdered milk and lightly toasted flour and butter. For families who want to taste all three flavours, they can opt to purchase the Assorted Polvoron Pack. Rivera said, “We’re making it easier for Filipino families to

enjoy all our Polvoron flavors in one pack at an affordable price.” “Red Ribbon’s Polvoron products are popular delicacies that never fail to delight Filipino families,” Rivera added. “For its part, Red Ribbon Bakeshop will continue to innovate its products by improving the taste and design. We will continue to make great-tasting confections that are guaranteed to delight families regardless of the occasion.” Now on its 36th year, Red Ribbon continues to make each celebration—whether small or grand—even more special. To date, the popular bakeshop chain now has over 300 stores nationwide.

It’s a good, important reminder to us at this Christmas time. “He was born in a small, unimportant village, the baby of a teenage girl. He grew up in a low-class, backward area. He worked in a carpenter shop until he was 30 years old. Then for just 3 years he was a traveling teacher. He never wrote a book. He never held a political position of respect and power. He never owned a home. He never had his own family. He never went to university. He never traveled more than 200 miles from the place he was born. He never did any of the things we call successful or great. While he was still a young man, public opinion turned against him. His closest friends ran away and abandoned him. He was betrayed and given over to his enemies to go through a completely untrue, unfair trial. Then He was tortured and killed between

he most difficult thing for many entrepreneurs is deciding how to market their business and how much money to spend on that plan. One of the easiest ways to answer this question is by getting to know your target market. What is a target market? Yo u r t a r g e t m a r k e t i s the specific customer

demographic that is most likely to buy your products or ser vices. Sometimes, this demographic will be the same for most of the products you sell, but most of the time, this demographic will change depending on the product, the time of year, and other cultural factors. Understanding its shifting nature is a part of understanding your target market. Why is understanding you r t arge t marke t s o important? Simply put, knowing your target market is important because it t will save you time, money, and energy. Let’s think about each of these individually. How will knowing your target market save you time? This is a little tricky because initially figuring out your

target market will take some time. You will need to meet with your employees and consult with some of your customers to determine who is buying your products most often and why. After that initial time investment, though, you will spend less time on marketing because you will know what works and you won’t be reinventing the wheel with each ad campaign. How will knowing your target market save you money? Again, learning about your target market will cost you some money i n t he b e g i nni ng . The research will need to be funded. But, once you know the process of determining your target market it will get less expensive each time. Eventually, you will have a strong enough feel for your

target market that marketing to them will feel intuitive to you. How will knowing your target market save you energy? Again, after the initial investment of energy, you will expend less of it over time. Focusing your marketing efforts on your target market will streamline the marketing process and give you extra energy to focus on improving your products and services and building relationships with your customers. Think ab out all the time, money, and energy you spend on marketing. Would it be nice to free up some of those resources for other endeavors? Targeted marketing will work for your business. Stay tuned... and More Power!

God and our ‘sexual rights’

T

he recent proliferation of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) is a most welcome development since they facilitate our life in society. With them, the requirements of the principles of subsidiarity and solidarity, so essential in society, are more finely met. Subsidiarity is when a bigger entity can delegate some of its powers to a lower entity. It’s also when the smaller needs of men in society are met due to the presence of more intermediaries between the individual citizens and the over-all state authorities. Solidarity is when society becomes more organized and moves more or less in the same direction without annulling legitimate differences and variety of sectors comprising it. It means having better working unity in society. The NGOs are these agents and intermediaries that foster the need for subsidiarity and solidarity in a given society. We just have to make sure that a third social principle, that of the common good, is also met, so that the play of the principles of subsidiarity and solidarity gets into the right groove. This is the problem we often encounter these days with respect to the NGOs. Many of them, I’m afraid, are a cover to advance an agenda

whose idea of common good is at best inadequate, often dangerous, if not utterly wrong. The other day, someone told me that in a Congress hearing, a representative of an NGO was batting for sexual rights, saying that everyone has a “right to a satisfying and safe sex.” While it’s true that we are a sexual being, and therefore sex has a legitimate part in our life, we just can’t be naïve when ideas like what was presented in that Congress hearing is proposed to us. We need to see if indeed this “right to a satisfying and safe sex” truly corresponds to an objective common good meant for us. We have to know what that right involves, what its inspiration and true purpose are, etc. We ju s t c an n ot s ay anything is a human right based on an opinion or even on a consensus of some people. We cannot even consider a culture and civi lizat ion as t he ultimate source of what is the authentic common good for us and what is not. They are not the ultimate terra firma. They shift too like sand, and can contain impurities. The crux of our problem is that in determining our common good, any mention to G o d is immediately or, worse, automatically

rejected. It’s as if God has no place in this discussion. It’s as if God is the very antithesis of democracy and its ways and processes. At best, any reference to God has to be veiled, since making it explicit is considered a fallacy of begging the question. It is feared it would illegitimately stop further discussion or reasoning, which is not true, since such reference would in fact throw the doors open for further scrutiny. It fosters more discussion. We need to make a drastic change in our attitude and ways of determining if a claimed human right is indeed part of our common good. We have to defer to what the Compendium of Social Doctrine says about the source of human rights. In point 153, it says, “The ultimate source of human rights is not found in the mere will of human beings, in the reality of the State, in public powers, but in man himself and in God his Creator.” So, it’s clear that no matter how hard it is to determine what is God’s will and design for us, we just have to make an effort to know God’s will, since ignoring it would just put us in the dark, and lead us to unjust ways of determining what is right and wrong, what is good and evil, true and false.

HINTS

and

Fr. Roy Cimagala In short, it would not be democratic, in fact, if our political ways would systematically shun the contribution of religion, or that our discussion of issues that affect our common good would exclude faith and religion, and everything involved there, like listening to the teachings of the Church, etc. In that set-up, democracy would be understood as just a purely human affair, as if everything begins and ends with us. Of course, we are the primary actors in democracy, but we are nothing without God who is our source, our Creator, and in fact, also our end. Democracy, without God, would lose its foundations and sense of purpose, and would just be driven not by truth nor by love, but by sheer and brazen human power. That’s when human rights enter the crisis zone. roycimagala@gmail.com

And while the law of competition may be sometimes hard for the individual, it is best for the race, because it ensures the survival of the fittest in every department. - - A ndrew carnegie ,

That six-month period ends this February 2016. The prosecutor’s office further office further said that it endeavoured to reconstitute cases where accused are detention prisoners from different police stations and private complainants. “It is unfortunate that there are cases which were dismissed by the courts because the object evidence were already destroyed by fire.

climate action by companies, cities, subnational regions and investors to address climate change. These cities’ commitments are also contained in the September 2015 update of the publication “Unlocking Ambition: Top Corporate and Sub-national Climate Commitments” published by The Climate Group, a PDF copy of which was emailed to BusinesWeek Mindanao by NAZCA’s Ian Ponce through John Hay, communications officer of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). Leading the pack is the city of Aspen in Colorado, USA best known for its posh ski resorts, which has committed to get 100 percent of its power from renewable sources before the end of this year. Aspen’s 100 percent renewable goal is just one component of its larger strategy to reduce both operational and community-wide greenhouse gas emissions 30 percent below 2004 levels by 2020 and 80 percent below 2004 levels by 2050. This goal was proposed 10 years ago as part of the city’s “Canary Initiative”, which “identifies Aspen and other mountain communities as canaries in the coal mine with respect to their sensitivity to the effects of climate change.” Aspen is the first of four US cities that have set the ambitious but doable shift to 100% renewable energy. As of September, Aspen had been using about 75 to 80 percent renewable energy. The city of Burlington in Vermont, USA has targeted 2020 as the year it will achieve its goal of getting 100 percent of its energy demand from renewable power sources. It plan to achieve this “through ownership and development of biomass, hydroelectric, wind, and solar power generation sites”, according to the UNFCC website. Another US city is Sta. Monica in California which set to get all its power demand from renewable sources by 2025. San Francisco, also in California, planned to achieve the shift to 100 percent renewable power sources by 2020. It pledged to “supply 100% of citywide electricity demand with renewable sources by 2020 through hydroelectric, solar, and biogas facilities, and distributed generation.” The other eight cities that have set 100 percent renewable power targets are: Oslo in Norway, which planned to achieve the goal by 2020; Copenhagen, Denmark , 2025; Malmö, Sweden, 2030; Säffle, Sweden, 2030; Växjö, Sweden, 2030; Stockholm, Sweden, 2040; Gävle, Sweden, 2050; Vancouver, Canada, 2035. UNFCCC Executive Secretary Christiana Figueres, UN Assistant Secretary General for Climate Change Janos Pasztor, and other climate change experts hail these cities commitments especially since cities are an integral part of the solution in fighting climate change. Scientific estimates show that cities are responsible for 75 percent of global CO2 emissions, with transport and buildings being among the largest contributors. And these 12 cities are just the pioneers around the world that have woken up to this fact and are taking up the challenge to

go green. In a video posted on the Facebook account of the UNFCCC, Pasztor warned that “if we don’t address climate change, the chances are we may roll back the many developments we have achieved in the last 20-30 years.” “There are increasing studies and increasing experience in many parts of the world which demonstrate that economic growth and addressing climate change do not need to be antagonistic to each other. There are countries like Denmark that have grown enormously but have kept their emissions below than what it was before,” he said. These cities 100% renewable power target is hoped to encourage other cities, regions, investors and individuals to do all they can and lay firm commitments in the hoped-for legally binding agreement against climate change during the 21st session of the Conference of the Parties (COP21) to the 1992 UNFCCC in Paris in December. Cities are critical player in the fight against climate change as studies showed that nearly three-quarters of the world’s population will live in cities by 2050. Thus their countries’ iNDCs should be ambitious but doable and demonstrate a strong commitment to the common objective of limiting global warming to below the 20C relative to pre-industrial levels.

Question... from page 1

The invitation was sent to address the continued opposition on the first seaport PPP project from business groups and city government officials as well as resolve the conditions set by the RDC in its endorsement. A source from the city council said the proposed resolution is now being drafted using the Local Government Code, which provides authority to local government units to issue appropriate recommendations for the implementation of projects, as legal basis. Section 27 of the code specifies that no project can be implemented without prior consultations with the local government and that projects cannot be implemented without “prior approval of the Sanggunian (local council).” Ivan C. Cortez, head of the Davao City Investment and Promotion Center, confirmed to BusinessWorld that some officials were “informed”, not consulted, about the project. Mr. Cortez also pointed out that the city government has not issued any recommendation for the project’s implementation. Other city government officials declined to comment at this time whether the winning bidder will face hurdles when applying for the required local permits to roll out the project. National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA)Davao Regional Director Ma. Lourdes D. Lim, who is also the vice-chairperson of the RDC, appeared before the city council in late August to seek recommendation for the project. “The authorization of the Sangguniang Panlungsod (city council) is required under the Local Government Code... We respect the SP’s authority so we are asking for their approval,” Ms. Lim then said. The RDC endorsed the Sasa

Port proposal late last year, but the endorsement included key issues that the council wants addressed before implementation. One of these conditions is for the national government to secure the 6.2-hectare area that will be used in expanding the port, which is estimated at P600 million plus P900 million for the relocation costs. The RDC also wants the government to “ensure the appropriate compensation is paid for the private properties that will be acquired as additional right-of-way.” Another condition is a provision in the terms of reference identifying “who will shoulder the payment for the real property tax.” A third condition is “to include the port users in the form of better and affordable services, and, more importantly, opportunities for sustainable employment and entrepreneurial activities of the people of Davao Region resulting from the operations of the port.” Former councilor Peter T. Laviña, one of the first to express opposition to the project, asserts that the privatization of the port will be at the expense of those who have already invested in setting up facilities at the port. “The operation at Sasa Port is unique because its port handling services are provided by two companies in a healthy competition. The port handling services in other ports in the country are handled by a single company,” said Mr. Laviña who previously chaired the council committee on trade and industry. The Department of Transportation and Communications has proceeded with the preliminary bidding requirements and the department’s Pre-qualification, Bids and Awards Committee has rated five local and foreign companies as qualified

to compete for the Sasa Port modernization. The submission and opening of bids is scheduled within the fourth quarter while the awarding is planned for April 2016.

line tripped and could not be repaired immediately because landowner Mitmug Dimaampao refused NGCP lineman entry to his property. Dimaampao is the same landowner who previously barred NGCP linemen from entering his property to trim trees he himself planted which obstruct the transmission lines. The tie line was finally energized at the Agus 2 switchyard side at 11:37AM. The tie line is operated and maintained by the stateowned National Power Corp., and private concessionaire grid operator NGCP assisted in the efforts to restore power. In a media statement, NGCP reiterated its appeal for the public’s cooperation and warned that right of way violations along transmission lines compromise not just the safety of the people, but also the security of the power grid. Because of Mindanao’s current power situation, the isolation of any power plant from the grid may result in more load curtailment during peak hours to allocate whatever power is available to the rest of the customers. Starting Monday, 26 October, the Cagayan Electric Power and Light Company (CEPALCO) reinstated rotating brownouts allegedly due to the “curtailments implemented by the Power Sector Assets & Liabilities Corporation (PSALM) due to the reduced

capacity of Agus plants” and would implement emergency load droppings within its franchise area Cagayan de Oro City and the adjacent Misamis Oriental municipalities of Tagoloan, Villanueva and Jasaan. Earlier last Saturday, 17 October NGCP’s right-of-way (ROW) woes breached critical level with the sustained tripping of the Agus 2-Kibawe Line 1 in Mindanao at 9:39AM on October 17. “The tripping of the line was caused by a fallen tree cutting the line conductors. This leaves NGCP with only one line catering to the Agus 1 and 2 power plants and threatening the entire Mindanao island with complete isolation from these hydropower plants should the remaining line become unavailable,” the company said in a media statement. The situation is further aggravated by landowners refusing entry to NGCP personnel deployed to clear and restore these lines which are vital to the grid. “It has become the practice of some landowners to intentionally plant trees or build structures under high voltage transmission lines, and demand for recompense when we seek entry into the property to conduct maintenance activities. The trees and other structures under our facilities breach our safety clearances and endanger the reliability of the entire grid,” NGCP stressed.

The company has dispatched an urgent request to the Department of Energy (DOE) and Philippine Army to assist in the negotiations with landowners and clear the lines. The frequent dips in voltage and frequency are adversely affecting household appliances and industrial equipment. “NGCP is seeking all avenues of support, from the DOE to the military to the public. We are also appealing to the local government units for a resolution prohibiting tree-planting and building any structure under transmission lines. This does not only affect NGCP or the hydroplants, which form the bulk of their power supply, but all the power consumers in Mindanao stand to bear even longer power interruptions,” the company said. NGCP is a privately owned corporation in charge of operating, maintaining, and developing the country’s power grid. It transmits high-voltage electricity through “power superhighways” that include the interconnected system of transmission lines, towers, substations, and related assets. The consortium, which holds the 25-year concession contract to operate the country’s power transmission network, includes Monte Oro Grid Resources Corp., led by Henry Sy, Jr., Calaca High Power Corporation, led by Robert Coyiuto, Jr., and the State Grid Corporation of China (SGCC) as technical partner.

‘Lihuk 2016’ coalition to influence voters’ decision wednesday | october 28, 2015

By Mark Francisco, Staff Writer

AGAYAN DE ORO CITY – A group of concerned entities here have banded together to create a coalition that would galvanize voters in the 2016 elections to choose their candidates wisely. Lihuk 2016, based from the vernacular “move”, was launched last Monday, October 26, at the Jesuit-run Xavier University, with the following as members: NSTP Education Association in Region 10, National Movement for

Free Elections (Namfrel), Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting (PPCRV), Cagayan de Oro City Police Office, Archdiocese of Cagayan de Oro, Simbahang Lingkod ng Bayan and three associations inside the university. Lihuk 2016 spokesperson Nestor Banuag said the group would partner with Roman Catholic parishes all over the city to disseminate their awareness advocacies to voters. However, Banuag was

Editor: Cheng Ordoñez

quick to point out that even non-Catholics are welcome to participate in their volunteerism. “We cannot partner with barangay officials because some of them are candidates. We can never be non-partisan in as far as our aim is concerned,” he said. Banuag said Lihuk 2016 will campaign for anti-vote buying within the electorate in each barangay. They will also conduct town hall-style meetings, dubbed as “Kwentuhan ng Bayan,” where residents are enticed to forward their governance

proposals that they would like the winning local candidates to realize. Lihuk 2016 secretariat will collate all these and will forward this to all the candidates for congressmen, mayor, vice-mayor and councilors in Cagayan de Oro City for their perusal. “We know for a fact that each candidate in the city has his and her own platform. But are their platforms really what the people need and want?” Banuag asked, thus, the conception of ‘Kwentuhan ng Bayan.’ Lihuk 2016 will also

organize candidates’ fora similar to a debate. Banuag said that since their resources are limited, their actions would confine only in Cagayan de Oro City, but

he urged other civicminded individuals and groups elsewhere in Northern Mindanao to emulate the Lihuk 2016 template and apply it in their respective localities.

Limketkai Luxe Hotel. Philippine Seven Corporation President and CEO Jose Victor Paterno said that 7-Eleven is growing its network of stores all over the Philippines in their aim to provide unique experience that only 7-Eleven can give. PSC

Philippine Seven Corporation (Licensee of 7-Eleven in the Philippines) President and CEO Jose Victor Paterno said during the launching that their arrival here in Cagayan de Oro City is a fruit of the idea that Mindanao has established competition. It is also a perfect market for 7-Eleven’s offerings due to its increasing per capita income and tourist arrivals.

is the country’s licensee of 7-Eleven stores in the Philippines. He also said that Cagayan de Oro, as part of ever-booming Mindanao, is a perfect market for 7-Eleven’s convenience and service offerings having its increasing per capita income and tourist arrivals in the recent years. PSC started its expansion outside Luzon in 2012. In Cagayan de Oro, it already has four branches and five more will be opened including areas near Petron along Xavier University, Capitol Plaza, Ma. Reyna Xavier University Hospital, and along Velez and Hayes streets. PSC is looking at opportunities in other Mindanao key locations like General Santos and

Iligan, said that CEO. Other than Slurpee, customers could also enjoy other convenient alternatives like Gulp, City Blends − their newest honest-togoodness coffee, Fundae soft-serve ice cream, Big Bite Hotdog, siopao, and a lot more. They can also get to experience CliQQ, 7-Eleven’s load and bills payment kiosk. As part of the grand opening, 7-Eleven also carried out the “7-Eleven Hero Nation,” a benefit rock concert. It featured most celebrated

performers in rock music, Rico Blanco, Parokya ni Edgar and Kamikazee. Moreover, 7-Eleven Hero Nation is a celebration of another milestone of the store. Having its slogan, “Serving our customers, our heroes,” the concert is also a form of giving back to the store’s every day heroes – the customers, loyal and new alike. PSC believes that its customers have helped sustain the leading convenience store retailer to its nationwide growth. The proceeds of

the concert will be donated to MASICAP MSME Development Foundation, a Mindanaobased entrepreneurial program. MASICAP helps small and medium scale enterprises by assisting them with feasibility studies to access support from various funding institutions. It was a program revived by PSC’s late chairman, Vicente T. Paterno. To date, the foundation has helped a total of 6,000 entrepreneurs.

One thing that makes PSC CEO Paterno proud of 7-Eleven is that they have more products in a fixed area.
