CEBU, Philippines - The 12th “National Cooperative Summit” was formally launched last Saturday, highlighting the closing of the 2013 Central Visayas Cooperative Congress held at the J Center Convention Hall in Mandaue City.
Cebu will host the cooperative summit on Oct. 16-18, 2014 that is themed “Coops 2020: Raising the Bar!” The event is expected to draw around 4,000 coop leaders from all over the country.
Engr. Sylvia Paraguya, summit chairperson and chairman of the Philippine Cooperative Center, said they are excited over next year’s upcoming assembly following the success of the previous event in 2012. She said that because of that success, the blueprint for a coop decade is now released and would be launched during the 2014 summit. "We are excited in the national coop summit to see how the Philippine cooperatives can really push the coops to be a very potent force in the development of the country,” she said.
Doris Cañares, Victo National chairman, said the summit is also an opportunity for cooperatives to share and get updated on cooperative movement developments.
