The theme of the Management Association of the Philippines (MAP) for 2018 is “Competing in the Age of Disruption”. Disruption will come from advancement in technology, innovation in business models, borderless competition, climate change and new dynamics in geopolitics.
In the security arena, this theme becomes even more relevant with the declaration of the President classifying the CPP/NPA as a terror group. This pronouncement validates the existence of the movement’s sinister plot to wreak further damage on the political and economic environment by creating an atmosphere of fear and terror. The latest offensive action of the movement has taken a toll on businessmen operating in far-flung areas, even as they continue to exploit socio-economic issues to discredit the government.Feb 20 - PVC Edit_DLS-Insurgency-Summary (1)
