The Australia Philippines Business Council has been established for a number of years and has an excellent reputation for forging strong connections between the Australian and Philippines markets.”

Ian Pelayo, Corporate Secretarial Manager added: “Having been originally from the Philippines myself, I have a number of strong connections and associations with the country. I’m well aware of the potential for businesses in the Philippines and look forward to being an active member of the Business Council and attending several of their networking events.”

As a multi-generational and independently owned firm, ABN Australia prides itself on the efficient execution of services, deep local market knowledge, and highly responsive client service. The business has helped launch more than 150,000 companies for domestic and international clients in Australia since 1976, and now has over 440 5-star reviews through independent review website Trustpilot.
