While in Los Angeles, Aquino will have a series of business meetings with officials of Walt Disney International, Western Digital, and AECom?s Enterprise Growth Solutions. Aquino will meet first with Andy Bird, chairman of Walt Disney International, to discuss ?the investment policies and the climate in the creative sector, particularly game development and animation?. ?I think the President will also welcome an exchange of ideas how the Philippine government can continue to support and develop the industry,? Philippine Ambassador to the United States Jose Cuisia, Jr. said in an interview with Radio-Television Malaca?ang. The president will then meet with Stephen Milligan, chief executive officer of Western Digital (WD). Cuisia said that during their meeting, Aquino and Milligan will discuss how Western Digital can expand its operations in the Philippines. Western Digital is a data storage solutions company. It has a plant in Laguna Technopark with more than 10,000 employees. ?They are quite a large employer in the Philippines. The president will also explore with them the possibility of their setting up shared services in the Philippines,? he said. Aquino will also be meeting with Michael Donnelly, group president of AECom?s Enterprise Growth Solutions. ?I think the President intends to find out from Mr. Donnelly how the government can help them in expanding the hiring and training of Filipino engineers because they are interested to expand their operations by partnering with private sector clients with respect to infrastructure development,? Cuisia said. — PNA ]]>
