♔ Data Protection Officer Training and Certification

Time 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Venue The Green Banana Business Hotel, Pryce Business Park, J.P. Laurel Avenue, Davao City
Description WHY APPOINT A DPO?
Appointing a Data Protection Officer (DPO) is a legal requirement for personal information controllers (PICs) and personal information processors (PIPs), under the Data Privacy Act of 2012.

Apart from complying with the legal obligation, having a DPO will do your organization a lot of good. In this information age, where personal data serve as building blocks of any organization, assigning a focal person to ensure the protection of your personal data collection and processing is a must. A DPO increases your chance to remain competitive in the dynamic global landscape of data protection. At the same time, it improves your customer service and enhances your responsiveness to growing public awareness and regard for personal data protection.

★ Water Challenge Forum 2018

Time 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Venue Solaire Resort Hotel
Description New developments in the Philippine water sector are perhaps one area where advocates aspire to see more happening. It is without doubt that we see more talk than action on the country's sustainable water future. While everybody agrees that we can live without most things but not without water, there appears to be a low public appreciation on the importance of water to this day. While occasionally our farmers are hit by drought and people suffer from temporary water shortages as well as many have no access to clean water, on the whole no one feels that there is a serious water crisis hitting the country to be alarmed about and so this leads to a "why act now" attitude.

Setting aside this public attitude towards water, the flipside is the need of the private sector to increase competitiveness by managing resources well, addressing market requirements and ensuring that business is built on the foundation of sustainability and resiliency. Looking at the water sector from this business lens, offers a different perspective and motivation to see faster developments in the water sector of the country as well as to address water challenges head on.

It is in this race to gain a market edge among businesses and investors where we find more appreciation for water as it contributes to the aspired competitiveness and profitability that businesses desire. In this arena, water is appreciated and where business opportunities lie.

It is within this context that the Water Challenge Forum 2018 is being organized.

OBJECTIVES
To provide an update on recent developments in the Philippine water sector and discuss policy, programs and projects initiated by the National Government Agencies and Local Government Units;
To engage non-government organizations and international organizations to share their insights and programs on developing the Philippine water sector;
To highlight business opportunities in the water sector; and
To showcase innovative technologies that addresses the water challenges.

TARGET PARTICIPANTS
Business Executives
National Government Officials
Local Government Officials
International Organizations Representatives
Water Utilities/Water Districts Representatives
Water Solutions Providers
Water Program and Projects Implementers
Academe
Non-Government Organization Representatives
Architects, Environmental Planners and Engineers
Property Developers
Professional Consultants

✽ Anti-Illicit Trade Forum 2018

Time 8:30 am - 5:30 pm
Venue M Gallery hotel, Naypyitaw
Description In 2018, a Global Illicit Trade Environment Index has been commissioned to the Economist Intelligence Unit by the Transnational Alliance to Combat Illicit Trade (TRACIT). Myanmar is one of 84 countries featured in the Index. The objective of this project is to improve the knowledge and understanding of the regulatory environment and economic circumstances that enable illicit trade and provide recommendations on priority areas.

Given the lack of data and information on Myanmar’s illicit trade activities, EuroCham will host in partnership with TRACIT and the Economist Intelligence Unit, the Anti-Illicit Trade Forum 2018, as it recognizes how valuable information can be as a tool to raise awareness and mobilize action. This event on a highly topical issue, first of its kind in Myanmar, will take place in Nay Pyi Taw on Wednesday 5th of September 2018.

The objective of the event will be presenting the Index findings, as well as Eurocham’s concerns as the EuroCham Myanmar Anti-illicit Trade Advocacy Group and industry representatives to relevant stakeholders and media.

The panels will include leading private sector representatives, high-level government officials, key experts from international organizations and academics, including TRACIT General director and UNODC’s Country Director. An overview of the Index results, as well as in depth analysis and recommendations on specific issues will be presented by the different expert panels.

The Economist – Intelligence Unit

The Economist Intelligence Unit is the research and analysis division of the Economist group and the world leader in global business intelligence.

Created in 1946, this unit has 70 years’ experience in helping businesses, financial firms and governments to understand how the world is changing and how that creates opportunities to be seized and risks to be managed.

To find out more about the Global Illicit Trade Environment Index 2018:
illicittradeindex.eiu.com TRACIT
The Transnational Alliance to Combat Illicit Trade (TRACIT) is a private sector initiative to mitigate the economic and social damages of illicit trade by strengthening government enforcement mechanisms and integrating supply chain controls across industry sectors most impacted by illicit trade.
TRACIT draws from industry strengths and market experience to build habits of cooperation between business, government and the diverse group of countries that have limited capacities for regulatory enforcement. Connecting and mobilizing businesses across industries, sectors and national borders makes it possible to achieve results more effectively than any single actor can accomplish alone.
