Ambassador Harald Fries of the Embassy of Sweden in Manila visited First Maritime Place last January 14 to meet with executives of the PTC Group headed by Ambassador Carlos Salinas. Ambassador Fries was accompanied by Madame Susan Fries, Deputy Head of Mission Lennart Jansson and other delegates from the Embassy.
During the visit, PTC CEO Gerardo Borromeo gave the Ambassador and his team a brief overview of the PTC Group of Companies, a tour of PTC’s training facilities, and a report on the successful run of the #HindiAkoPlastic film roadshow conducted by the PTC-CSJ Foundation in cooperation with the Embassy of Sweden in Manila and the Swedish Institute. Also discussed were highlights of the award-winning project “Plastic-Free Starts with Me at PTC,” the company’s campaign promoting the broad-based use of the Ecoborick. Ambassador Fries and his team had the opportunity to test the ecobrick furniture constructed by PTC Group employees.
