As per the latest updates from the Philippines’ government (12th Mar 2020), the country has now raised the Code Alert System to Red Sublevel 2 that bans travel to and from Metro Manila, as well as prohibits mass gatherings such as events to minimize the spread of CoVid-19.
In view of these recent developments, the CXOCIETY team, organizer of the FutureCFO Conference series, is postponing our upcoming FutureCFO Conference Philippines in Manila originally scheduled to be held on 29 April 2020 to a later date till further notice.
In the meantime, CXOCIETY will continue monitoring the outbreak situation in Philippines closely and provide updates again on the new event date once that is firmed up and once official clearance has been given by the government.
Stay tuned to our website for updates. Thank you everyone for all your support during this period!
The Philippines is dubbed as one of the most dynamic economies in the East Asia region. Despite the rising global uncertainties, the World Bank projected the Philippines’ growth to remain strong at 6.1% for 2020.
A further good news is that the current administration’s economic team has recently announced that the new tax reforms programme, that includes the reduction of corporate income tax and the number of capital income tax rate, will take place in 2020.
However, this rosy outlook aside, recent events that saw disputes between major utility companies and the Philippine government have caused overseas investors to pull out $173 million in December last year. As a result, the country‟s benchmark index fell as it welcomed the New Year. Analysts believe that this fallout, should the worst occur, will negatively affect overall investor sentiments and the real economy. There is also concern that current saga will be a precedent for other businesses in the Philippines, especially those which are heavily regulated, and dampen FDIs as investors are taking conservative positions more than usual now.
Amidst uncertain geopolitical conditions and high regulatory risks in the country as well as constantly evolving technologies and the current Co-VID 19 outbreak, how should CFOs, who also act as their company‟s strategic business partner and catalyst, ensure corporate growth and successfully mitigate risks and challenges in 2020? How can CFOs reimagine finance functions and their organizations to survive and thrive in today‟s fast-paced and digitally driven landscape?
FutureCFO Conference Manila will address many of the latest macroeconomic and regulatory changes updates. The by invitation only conference will also cover cutting-edge technologies that CFOs need to keep abreast and practical strategies in creating value and driving successful finance transformation in the Philippines. This event will gather over 120 senior finance professionals from multiple industries in the Philippines for a day of insightful presentations, real business case studies, best practices and incisive panel discussions to answer some of the most pertinent questions and challenges facing the finance function in the country this year.
We look forward to having you at this exciting event!

The current CoVID-19 outbreak has triggered the world’s work-from-home experiment at scale. In certain sectors, this unexpected experiment has been so well received that some employers are considering adopting this exercise as a more permanent measure. For those who advocate more flexible working options, the past few weeks mark a possible step toward widespread and long-awaited reform. However, is this the future of work for Finance?
