The CEO, who speaks on the first day, will discuss how adaptability is key to improving lives. In the Philippines, Royeca’s motorcycle ride-hailing platform has been instrumental in improving mobility as its fleet of 27,000 bikers decreases commuting costs and travel time.

Most recently, he launched Angkas Motorsports in partnership with Ducati Philippines. Apart from supporting motorbike racers in international tilts, the program champions safety, emphasising how motorbike racing belongs on the track and not on public roads.
