Dennis Anthony Uy calls on businesses to help rebuild PH economy

Bilyonaryo Dennis Anthony Uy, co-founder and CEO of Converge ICT Solutions, is urging the private sector to help boost economic recovery amid the lingering supply chain challenges and rising inflationary pressures.

During a forum sponsored by the Makati Business Club (MBC) Uy noted the business community’s significant role in getting the economy on a firm recovery path.

“Every successful business is a step towards economic recovery. So, let us do what we do best. Keep our shops running, identify opportunities, innovate, and continue to help improve lives,” Uy said.

“These are difficult times, I admit, but with cooperation from the business sector and sound economic management from the (new) administration, we can survive this economic downturn,” he added.

Uy said Converge takes part in nation-building by connecting the unserved and underserved Filipino communities.

As of the end of the first quarter, Converge already covered more than 12 million Filipino households with 6.5 million fiber ports. This was powered by over 500,000 kilometers of total fiber assets, being the youngest and one of the most extensive in the country.

“Now is not the time to turn inwards or mind our own business; rather, now more than ever we should go out of our comfort zones and seek out larger causes that help the common Filipino,” Uy said.
