LOOK: Tessie Sy-Coson does Duterte fist
Tessie Sy-Coson, vice-chair of conglomerate SM Investments Corp., was pictured posing with a clenched fist alongside President Duterte, Presidential Adviser for Entrepreneurship Jose Ma. “Joey” A. Concepcion III, and other members of the ASEAN Business Advisory Council (ABAC) during the launch of the ASEAN Mentorship program.
Sy-Coson, whose family has interests in retail, banking and property development, is an active member of ABAC, the official ASEAN linkage tasked to provide private sector feedback and guidance to boost ASEAN’s efforts towards economic integration and identify priority areas for consideration by the region’s leaders.
Duterte’s clenched pose was used throughout the 2016 presidential campaign in which the President vowed to fight crime, corruption and drugs.
Coson earlier lauded the efforts of President Duterte in keeping a favorable business environment. She said the government’s vigorous war on drugs has helped the local economy grow.
