“Ilonggo Initiatives: The Changing Face of Business in Iloilo” was recently launched by the Iloilo Business Club (IBC) to commemorate its 20th anniversary.
This new coffee table book narrates the Iloilo’s “rise as the former Queen City of the South and the business titans that shaped the province’s progress.”
Dr. Mary Lou Lacson-Arcelo, John B. Lacson Foundation System President Emeritus and Chairman of the Board of Trustees, was one among the featured titans whose profiles were included in the said book.
The IBC-published book is not only about historical account of the Iloilo province business progress but it also features stories of Ilonggo entrepreneurs and their success in different endeavors. According to IBC chairman Juan Jose Jamora 111 the book was about the story of “Iloilo’s past, present and what is to come. This unprecedented special effort offers an alternative which features both familiar and untold stories behind Iloilo’s successful enterprises, people and places.”
