On March 12, 2013, Netmarks PH Chairman, Amb. Benjamin F. Sanvictores called on Netmarks, Inc. President Mr. Hiroshi Sato at the Netmarks headquarters in Toyosu district, Tokyo, Japan.  He was accompanied by NMP President, Mr. Philip B.

During the courtesy call, they discussed a wide range of topics ranging from the heightened interest of Japanese companies to invest in the Philippines, the emergence of Japan’s “China + One” strategy for mitigating country risk and numerous encouraging business developments being undertaken by Netmarks PH.

Mr. Shigeru Arakawa and Mr. Masahiro Miura of the Overseas Business Division of Netmarks JP were also in attendance.  Mr. Arakawa is an incumbent Director of Netmarks PH while Mr. Miura is the NMJ Manager directly responsible for Philippine business.

A private dinner party was hosted by President Sato in honor of Amb Sanvictores later that evening.
