Award recognizes contributions to the association’s global network and for exemplifying Member of the Year 

MANILA, PHILIPPINES– November 23, 2020 – World Trade Center (WTC) Metro Manila’s President and CEO, Pamela D. Pascual, was named the recipient of the World Trade Centers Association’s (WTCA) inaugural 2020 Champions Award for Member of the Year.  The honor recognizes Ms Pascual’s unique contributions to the WTCA’s global network and efforts that ultimately stimulate trade and investment, helping businesses connect globally and prosper locally. 

Part of WTCA’s 50th Anniversary celebration, the WTCA Champions Awards were designed to recognize members across its network of more than 320 highly connected, mutually supporting businesses and organizations in nearly 100 countries, who most exemplify the association’s core values and contribute to its mission. Honorees, whether a full team or individual staff person, were nominated by their fellow WTCA members, with winners chosen by a select panel, for their contributions to the network, as well as local and global communities, across four categories — Connectivity, Reciprocity, Network Support and Sustainability — and the coveted Member of the Year award exemplifying the values, vision, mission and goals of the association.

“On behalf of the association, I want to thank Pamela for her ongoing commitment to drive the future of global trade and investment,” stated John E. Drew, Chair, Board of Directors of the World Trade Centers Association. “The power of our network stems from the dynamic engagement of our diverse member base, and together, we are able to make a positive impact on trade and investment on a global scale.”

Ms Pascual earned this recognition for best representing the WTCA brand effectively, providing brand exposure to thousands of businesses entering its expo space and availing themselves of the multiple services that the WTC Metro Manila team provides.

This prestigious award from the WTCA, and recognition by my peers, are truly a great honor and privilege. It strongly validates that the efforts of World Trade Center Metro Manila in building trade development capacity, business and member services and conference and exhibition services are relevant and timely for the needs of our member companies and supports the mandate of the WTCA in the bigger global community.  I look forward to furthering collaboration with our peers around the world to foster trade and investment that positively impacts Manila and the Philippines.”

Ms. Pascual was awarded virtually by Robin van Puyenbroeck, WTCA Executive Director-Business Development, during the WTCA’s global Member Forum where more than 300 participants across 141 World Trade Centers came together for the association’s first global virtual event.
