US Firms Ignore Trump's Outsourcing Threats - AmChamThe American Chamber of Commerce in the Philippines (AmCham) has said US businesses in the Philippines are largely ignoring President-elect Donald Trump’s campaign threats, especially when it comes to outsourcing.


AmCham executive director Ebb Hinchliffe said that US firms have not expressed any reluctance to set up shop in the Philippines because Trump’s threats have not yet translated into actual policy. Hinchliffe, however, warned that should Trump’s rhetoric becomes a reality, it would be a disaster for the industry, but for now US firms are in a wait-and-see pattern.
