May 8, 2015

CHICAGO, IL - TransUnion hosted a dialogue today with Philippine President Benigno Aquino III and representatives from some of Chicago's leading corporations to discuss continued business opportunities with the republic. The event was held in cooperation with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the US-ASEAN Business Council, and the National Center for APEC.

Executives from TransUnion, which has had operations in the Philippines since 2011 and is helping lenders extend new credit to 25,000 Filipinos every month, renewed their commitment to bringing information for good to the people of the Philippines.

"We were honored to host President Aquino and his delegation at the TransUnion headquarters to help facilitate more open trade dialogue between the U.S. and the Philippines," said David Neenan, president of TransUnion's international operations. "The Philippines economy is poised for long-term economic growth, and we are proud to be providing services and solutions in an incredibly positive and open market that allow the country's businesses to thrive. At the same time, we are providing the consumers of the Philippines with essential financial tools and information to help improve their standard of living."

"By hosting this dialogue, TransUnion furthered the conversation between the U.S. business community and the Philippines during this crucial year of Manila's APEC chairmanship. Additionally, our conversation helped provide a path forward for greater interaction between our two economies as the Philippines considers its possible participation in the Trans-Pacific Partnership, further down the road." said Tami Overby, senior vice president for Asia at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. "We look forward to continued engagement with President Aquino and working with him to promote economic growth."
