PLDT Global, US-Philippines Society collaborate to foster business investments in the Philippines

PLDT Global Corporation (PLDT Global), through its United States business arm PLDT US Ltd. and the US-Philippines Society is working on a strategic partnership aimed at bridging US-based business with investment opportunities in the Philippines. PLDT Global is the international unit of PLDT Inc. (PLDT), the leading integrated telco network in the Philippines.

The partnership between the US-Philippines Society and PLDT Global leverages the strengths of both organizations to streamline the investment process and provide guidelines to US companies interested in setting up operations in the Philippines. With its extensive network and industry expertise, PLDT serves as a preferred partner - offering US businesses access to network infrastructure, subsea investments, and global standard data center builds.

“PLDT’s digital and infrastructure investments are anchored to its commitment to nation-building. Our collaboration with the US-Philippines Society will enable PLDT Global to engage and encourage US businesses to expand their presence in the Philippines and maximize the robust, compliant, and resilient network of PLDT. This in turn can boost the local economy, generate jobs, and uplift the lives of Filipinos,” says Roselle Dela Cruz, Vice President - Americas and EMEA of PLDT Global.


The US-Philippines Society plays an instrumental role in fostering stronger ties between the United States and the Philippines. With a commitment to enhancing bilateral relations and promoting cooperation across various sectors, the Society serves as a catalyst for economic growth, cultural exchange, and strategic collaboration.


“We are thrilled to learn of these new investments that the PLDT Group has undertaken to support digital advancements in the Philippines,” says Ambassador (ret) John F. Maisto, President of the US-Philippines Society.


As part of this strategic collaboration, the US-Philippines Society and PLDT Global will launch a business mixer in Washington D.C. this year. This event will serve as a platform for US and Philippine business leaders to network, exchange ideas, and explore potential investment opportunities.


“We look forward to collaborating with PLDT Global in ensuring that this initiative is echoed not just to our membership but to US businesses as well,” says Hank Hendrickson, Executive Director of the US-Philippines Society.
