Architect Palafox Leads the Philippines' Largest Business Conference

Architect Felino “Jun” Palafox, Jr. always thought of greatness for the Philippines. As someone who has already helped 40 countries across the world through architecture, planning, and design, he has now too established himself as a business leader, influencing the decision-makers of the Philippines toward a collective vision that is “Vision 2050: The Philippines, A First-World Economy.”

Promising days await the Philippines after the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry's (PCCI) 49th Philippine Business Conference & Expo, where business leaders and the government sector shared their own goals to propel the country toward being a top economy of the world.

Led by its visionary leaders President George Barcelon and Conference Chairman, our very own, Architect Felino “Jun” Palafox, Jr., PCCI remains optimistic and confident that with strong collaboration between all sectors, we will achieve the following:

- Most of the 17 Sustainable Goals (SDGs) by 2030;

- Join the list of the first-world countries by 2040; and

- Rank as one of the top 20 economies in the world by 2050.

Palafox also joined the Expo, having been the only design firm to participate. As we help shape our built environment, we brought tangibility to the shared vision through 3D animations of our own projects and a scale model demonstrating what the future looks like for our communities, towns, and cities if we start now.
