What's up for 2016?
Chairman Ravanera's New Year's Message
Dearly beloved kindred spirit in the Cooperative Movement:
A blessed happy new year!
We look back at 2015, the Centennial Year of the Philippine Cooperative Movement, as the year when the movement evolved into a solid force for sustainable development. A hundred years of experience has prepared the Cooperative Movement to take stock of its role in national development and to look beyond our shores in promoting social enterprise through cooperativism.
