Given the special challenges of its time, the second and third generation Filipino-Chinese leaders who comprise the Association of Young Filipino-Chinese Entrepreneurs (which was called formerly the Anvil Business Club), held a forum to address the challenge of successful succession planning. No less than Lance Gokongwei and his elder sister Robina Gokongwei-Pe were its marquee speakers on this topic. It was held at the speakers’ Crowne Plaza hotel in Ortigas amidst luxury Chinese lauriat buffet. Captains of industry and their families, top leaders from the Federation of Filipino-Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry Inc., Philippine Chinese Chamber of Commerce & Industry attended the dinner forum. The Chinese Embassy’s Consul General Shen Zicheng and Consul Chen Meiluan were also very much engaged with the topic at hand.
AYFCE is committed to empowering the Filipino-Chinese youth, preserving its Confucian values as well as giving a voice to the community. Its advocacy is entrepreneurship. It does so by holding bi-monthly forums wherein by leveraging on their well-lubricated network, they invite marquee leaders from various industries and backgrounds to hold intimate talks. Given the exclusive nature of the club, it is thus able to achieve its goal to have its members have a mentor-protégé’ relationship with its very elusive guest-speakers as well as the club’s top members. AYFCE has been doing this for more than 20 years, month in and month out. Now you know this secret club!
