Senator Paulo Benigno “BAM” Aquino IV echoes inspiration and zeal to Quezon City’s premier business chamber, January 14, 2014.

Aquino speaks to the newly inducted directors and members of the PCCI-QC during the induction and oath-taking ceremonies of PCCI-QC at ELJ Tower, ABS-CNB Center, Quezon City, filling them with renewed hopes and challenges toward making the city’s business milieu stronger as it did in the previous years.

Known as the co-founder of the revolutionary Hapinoy Community Store Program, the young Senator’s support of the Chamber is rooted in his staunch advocacy for entrepreneurship.

In 2011, for his groundbreaking work with Hapinoy, the World Economic Forum awarded him as Asian Social Entrepreneur of the Year United. The young senator did not hesitate to the invitation of PCCI-QC President Carl Balita, whom the senator shares close ties with terms of their common advocacy in entrepreneurship, to grace this occasion as keynote speaker.
