the Summit

  • With the inauguration of the BangsaMoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM) last 28th of March, peace is finally at hand in Mindanao and the Philippines as a whole. At the inauguration, President Rodrigo Roa Duterte said: “Before I end, let me repeat and reiterate my solemn promise to you — a sacred one which I also promised to Allah. With his blessings, that in my term, and for the next three years, we will all work and truly work for the benefit of the Bangsamoro people.” He further said: “To my dear Bangsamoro sisters and brothers … the power to chart the course of your region’s future is now in your hands.”

  • With this promise, the President and the BangsaMoro people, together with the whole Filipino nation, can start the road to peace, progress and prosperity in BARMM as well as the whole Mindanao. And this will only be possible with the cooperation of private and public enterprises from here and abroad.

  • The proposed First Bangsa Moro Global Economic Summit will put on center stage the massive economic activities that will be generated in the Marawi City rehabilitation, reconstruction and recovery master plan. This will present an enormous opportunity to the private sector for partnership and cooperation with the Government. An expert urban planner estimated that it will need eight Billion Dollars or 420 Billion Pesos to rebuild the City.
  • The conference shall be a one-day affair with about 300 participants expected to attend including several cabinet members, economic leaders and reputable foundations. It will be on August 19, 2019 at the Manila Hotel.
