The meeting allowed a brainstorming on future activities to further elevate business opportunities and community engagement, especially with the free-trade agreement between the European Free Trade Association EFTA, of which Switzerland is a member, and the Philippines is now in force. As close partners, PSBC and the Embassy look forward to a rich agenda of activities and to use the full bilateral potential.
