World Trade Center Metro Manila started operations in January 1990, linking the Philippines for the first time to a global network that provides businessmen with services and facilities needed to make the conduct of international trade easier, faster and cheaper.
World Trade Center Metro Manila is a member of the World Trade Centers Association (WTCA) in New York City which has around 100 World Trade Centers operating in almost 100 countries.
It is a private corporation owned by the Manila Exposition Complex and managed by the World Trade Center Management, Inc. World Trade Center Metro Manila belongs to the ICCP_Group_of Companies (headed by its Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Guillermo D. Luchangco).
