8 November – The Makati Business Club Board of Trustees today announced the election of Edgar O. Chua, Chairman of the Pilipinas Shell Petroleum Corporation, as the new chairman of MBC. Mr. Chua succeeds Mr. Ramon R. Del Rosario Jr., president and CEO of Phinma, Inc.

25 October – The Makati Business Club welcomes the administration’s push to revitalize the country’s relationship with China. Given China’s stature as a major player in global affairs, and the Philippines’ steady economic rise, both our countries stand to benefit from renewed and much closer ties, particularly in trade and investment. China’s expertise in infrastructure will be critical to the Philippines’ development, as we seek to close the massive infrastructure gap that has been suppressing the country’s growth for the past years.

3 September – The Makati Business Club strongly condemns the horrific act of terror that took place yesterday evening at the Roxas Night Market in Davao City. This act of cowardice, which targeted the lives of innocent civilians and sought to foster fear in people, has no place in any society.
