Murat Wahab, Founder and Principal of Hakim Saya: Your Global Funding Partner, was invited to attend the Philippine Economic Briefing at the United - Asia-Pacific  Economic Cooperation (APEC) 2023 in San Francisco, California, and to meet with the Philippines President, H.E. Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr., his various Secretaries, and business delegates.

It was amazing to see how the Philippine's economy is thriving and growing rapidly. There are many existing projects in the pipeline, from infrastructure to renewable energy, digital infrastructure, healthcare, tourism, etc.

The Philippines Government also launched its first-ever Sovereign Investment Fund, known as "Maharlika Investment Fund (MIF), designed to promote economic development. MIF recently appointed Mr. Rafael Jose Consing Jr. as the President and CEO to run the MIF.

The MIF fund will accelerate the implementation of #197 infrastructure flagship projects in the Philippines. Investors can invest in emerging megatrends such as digitalization, ESG, and healthcare. The MIF also will attract direct equity investments from local and global funds. The MIF aims to co-finish and share knowledge with other sovereign wealth funds. 

Hakim Saya: Your Global Funding Partner, was invited to have a 1:1 business matching session with the Philippines companies seeking business opportunities with the U.S. companies. There are many business opportunities for U.S. businesses to do business in the Philippines. 

Thank you to May Nina Celynne Layug, from the Philippines International Trade and Investments Center, San Francisco for inviting our Founder and Principal, Mr. Wahab to take part and meet with wonderful business delegations from the Philippines.
