Vote For The Next Philippine Gems!

Just last week, Isla Lipana & Co., the Philippine member firm of Pricewaterhouse Coopers, celebrated their 91st anniversary.  In line with the celebration is the company's social responsibility project of the firm, called Philippine Gems.  This is to discover beautiful destination in the Philippines, a way to promote foreign and domestic tourism.  

“The increased awareness and appreciation of our country by our own citizens and the rest of the world will give it more prestige and attraction. Eventually, we trust that this initiative will pump prime economic activities in the areas we are highlighting,” said incoming Isla Lipana & Co. Chairman, Atty. Alex Cabrera.

The Philippine Gems aims to recognize destinations through online voting from June 26 to August 9 2013.
