Donald Lim shared:

“Philippine Blockchain Week has two goals: to fortify Filipinos with cutting-edge skills and knowledge to be competitive on a global scale in industries of the future; and to showcase the Philippines as the “Blockchain Capital of Asia”. 

Also from Dr. Lim in another press release:

“We are looking forward to welcoming the world to the Philippines and to creating a premiere space for Filipinos to share strategic insights and knowledge for growing blockchain technology in the Philippines, and learn from these Web3 experts. The Philippines is predominantly Web2. Outside of the country, they are already on Web3. Filipinos are ready to be involved in the adoption and development of this innovative technology. This is a great opportunity to learn as we transition to blockchain technology.”
