Eversince, what I always here from my Philippine Government and business leaders in the country is the push to attract foreign investments into the country. Special tax-reduction programs, BOT, special trade zones, and the like.
I didn’t mean this is not good, it is in fact necessary for every nation per se.
Yet, I have thought, why I haven’t heard a lot of a push in the lines of “helping the nation through creation of real quality products.”
You know what, back centruies ago, nation like Japan sent missions of people in Europe to learn how to construct better roads, better medicine, better industrial processes – you know, things they could learn and build upon in there home country.
Before I really find it funny how the Japanese are so so meticulous, not stopping to think of how to improve things, even small small things, like innovations in cooking, in simple home cooking, in small kitchenwares, in small bathroom utilities, in program shows in TV that not only offer to entertain but also a touch of educational trivias.
Do you believe there is a way to create quality products at a cheaper cost and consequently at acheaper price for the people? If we want this, we need to think, to be creative, and to try. Let us learn even little things wherever we may find them, take note of them, and think of how we can adopt it to the Philippines. Think of how we can emulate it, improve it.
Imagine, if we have companies in the Philippines that offer quality product at a cheaper price or affordable and fair price for the people, we help the country. Importantly, we can help our fellow Filipinos.
One more thing, maybe this is worth another thorough reflection, but allow me to just state it here now, “business enterprises – goal is not profit alone but helping the people who uses the product through quality and fair price.“
