APBC Open for Business in WA

The Australia Philippines Business Council has expanded its national footprint with the recent launch of APBC Western Australia.

In a sign of the times, a hybrid event combining a live, in-person function in Perth with a simultaneous online component was held 26 August to mark the occasion. Virtual attendees included those from other states as well as the Philippines.

MSC Mission Donation Boosts Students Hardship Fund

An additional $10,000 donation from MSC Mission Australia has hiked up the total funds raised by the APBC Filipino Students Hardship Appeal to $71, 818. Founded in France during the 1850s, Missionnaires du Sacre-Coeur (Missionaries of the Sacred Heart) is known for development and relief programs that advocate justice, peace and integrity. Father Roger Purcell, himself a mission Ary of 38 years at the PapuanHighlands, heads the MSC Mission Office Australia.

KEEPING TRADE LANES OPEN

The Australian Federal Government, State Governments and Territories have taken a united stance and agreed that all freight and logistics services (domestically and internationally) be designated as essential services and thereby supported and protected so that they remain open during the current lockdown in Australia. Many other nations have also committed to maintaining open supply chains despite COVID-19 issues including the Philippines.
