USTP: the only PH academe in US study visit

USTP was the only delegate from the academe fortunate to be part of the Philippine delegation to the 2019 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) and study visit to Silicon Valley, San Francisco. The Philippine delegation was composed of delegates from the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), Department of Science and Technology (DOST), the Semiconductor and Electronics Industries in the Philippines, Inc. (SEIPI), and some representatives from the business sector.

The study visit to the USA consisted of two parts; first, a visit to Silicon Valley and Philippine Consular Office, San Francisco; and second, attendance to 2019 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The USTP Team was able to visit several industries and universities including Google, ON Semiconductor, ECLIPSE Ventures, UC Berkeley, and the Facebook Headquarters.
