Cebu Business Month 2022Now in its 26th year, CBM 2022 banners the theme “Go Cebu”, with the tagline: Realign, Reinforce, Rebuild, the Cebu Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCCI) vows to continue its efforts to promote, inspire, and help grow Cebu’s business sector by spearheading various programs and activities in the areas of Tourism, ICT-BPM, Entrepreneurship, and the Creative Entertainment Industry. 

CBM held a press conference and media mixer on May 12, 2022, at the Marco Polo Plaza Hotel. In his welcome speech, CCCI president Charles Kenneth Co underscored the chamber’s vision of being the engine of Cebu’s economic growth. 

He explained how CBM’s array of activities plays a vital role in forging connections, exchanging novel ideas, and mounting new opportunities and partnerships as Cebu completely rebuilds itself from crises.  

Co also expressed his gratitude to the CBM 2022 working committee led by its chairperson Brigitte Carmel Lim noting that CBM will deliver more meaningful activities that will contribute to the competitive advantage of Cebu in the global economy.

 “Your Chamber, as personified in the CBM family, is committed to continue engaging our members and the entire business community in programs and activities that connect opportunities, grow businesses and create value,” Co said. 

This year’s CBM overall chairperson Brigitte Carmel Lim ushers the CBM 2022 working team in strengthening its partnership with various organizations and companies. This includes unfolding an array of hybrid and face-to-face events that seek to convene industry stakeholders, founders, innovators, and creatives within its major sectors. 

Cebu Business Month 2022“We came up together with different activities and programs that are all informative, educational, experiential, and inspirational,” Lim said. “We share the same vision to make Cebu strong again,” Lim added. 

Chairpersons for each of CBM’s projects shared the highlights of their respective programs. With the recently concluded national election, the committee is ready and optimistic to work with the new administration, particularly in keeping up with relevant trends and programs beneficial for Cebu’s business industry.  

Lim stressed that CBM is focused on opportunities as the chamber address and adjusts to the needs of the different industry stakeholders. She shared that she has high hopes for the new administration, both national and local alike. 

“It’s not just the color of my shirt or my political affiliation. It’s about rebuilding a community and it goes beyond our personal biases. It means rising above. We are drawn to serve a common purpose and that is to serve Cebu, our home,” Lim said.
