Organization: PCA takes part in 41st IFAWPCA Convention, CONEXPO 2014

Some members and directors of the Philippine Constructors Association, Inc. (PCA) participated in two international conventions for the month of March. 

A PCA delegation led by PCA President Delfin Wenceslao, Jr. attended the 41st International Federation of Asian and Western-Pacific Contractors Associations (IFAWPCA) Convention on March 2 to 5 at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Jakarta, Indonesia. 

The delegation was composed of PCA Executive Director Lito Madrasto, PCA Past President Levy Espiritu and Emilio J. Tumbocon, PCA Directors John A. Bautista and Ramonito “Oging” Sicat and former PCA 1st Vice President Rey Villar. 

Members of the Women in Construction (WIC) also joined the delegation, including Ms. Ellen Chua, Ms. Rosario Evangelista, Ms. Hedy Barretto and Ms. Ma. Lourdes Fernando. 
Since the formation of IFAWPCA, the IFAWPCA Convention has been a tradition, where IFAWPCA members exchange important and timely information about the recent developments in the construction industry.

Themed “infrastructure for a Better Future,” the 41st IFAWPCA Convention featured conferences, seminars, a construction exhibition and cultural events and served as an effective venue for PCA and WIC members to rub elbows with their fellow industry players in Asia and the Pacific.

On March 4 to 8, another PCA delegation graced the CONEXPO 2014 in Las Vegas, USA.

PCA Immediate Past President Augusto Manalo, PCA 1st Vice President Ronaldo Elepano, former PCA Presidents Jorge Consunji and Anthony Fernandez made presentations during the event to promote the PHILCONSTRUCT event and the Philippines as a promising investment destination. 

The delegation also included PCA Director Gwen Cua and other members of the Association of Carriers and Equipment Lessors (ACEL).
