The network offers the opportunity to engage in lifelong education in an easy-to-access, interactive format, thereby improving patient care. Beginning in 2009, the ONE Network provided doctors in developing nations complimentary access, regardless of their ability to pay. After one year of promotion in developing nations, more than 9,800 doctors currently have access to the ONE Network.

The Cebu Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Philippines)

Cebu Business Month

Cebu Business Month is an annual business celebration organized by the Cebu Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Its 19th year in June 2010 continues to spur business activity in Cebu by gathering more than 8,000 stakeholders in a month of relevant activities that focus on Information Communication Technology, Tourism, and Entrepreneurship. Activities promote Cebu as an IT-enabled services hub, a rural tourism destination, and the province’s products including sweet mangoes, rattan and buri furniture, guitars and jewelry. CBM, begun in 1991 as Cebu Business Day, has helped Cebu to become the fastest growing economy in the Philippines today, as a business and IT hub and attractive tourist destination.
