Asian Dragon September-October 2013 Issue attests to the fact that good management is the key to success.

Eusebio "Yosi" Tanco shares how planning and anticipating change is a crucial part of good management. He narrates the story of how he correctly predicted the decline of the textile industry, and hence made a timely shift to the service sector.

Our long-term plan is to give all Filipinos who pass through our educational center an opportunity to land a well-paying job."
