“You cannot build relationships over the phone, you build relationships by being there. Most business discussions are built on trust; how can you build trust if you don’t see them? They only get to see you and hear you when you visit them,” he added.Concepcion is the CEO of RFM Corp. and has served as Presidential Adviser for Entrepreneurship under two Philippine presidents—former presidents Gloria Macapagal Arroyo and Rodrigo Duterte.

“You cannot build relationships over the phone, you build relationships by being there. He said it to me many times, ‘I can’t keep on going out,’” he added. Most business discussions are built on trust; how can you build trust if you don’t see them? They only get to see you and hear you when you visit them,” he added. Concepcion is the CEO of RFM Corp. and has served as Presidential Adviser for Entrepreneurship under two Philippine presidents—former presidents Gloria Macapagal Arroyo and Rodrigo Duterte. Talking about Marcos, Concepcion said the President “is doing a good job being the CEO of Philippines, Inc.

“During our Cambodia visit, he gave them confidence that the government is solidly behind the private sector, whether the local private sector or foreign investors, the Philippines is open for investments,” he said, pointing out that this is especially important for the tourism sector and for the many MSMEs that depend on tourist arrivals. He also cited the President’s move to invite Arroyo to join him at the 29th APEC Summit in Thailand as “PGMA knows all the leaders, and she was a great support to him during the meetings.” Marcos even called Arroyo as his “ .
