ABA was conceived to be the South East Asian region’s most prestigious and business awarding event for large and small enterprises alike.
In the ABA Gala Night, a total of 47 awardees and 68 finalists received a specially-crafted trophy from President Duterte. They were presented with a handcrafted sculpture by the award-winning and well known artist Jaime Nepomuceno. The masterpiece called “hand-in-hand” signifies the connection of all companies in the ASEAN region as brothers working towards prosperity for all.
