The Federation of Filipino Chinese Chambers of Commerce and Industry, Inc. (FFCCCII), in cooperation with the Camera Club of the Philippines (CCP), launched the ” Connected Community: A Filipino-Chinese Photography Contest” on August 8, 2016. The concept “Connected Community” perfectly encapsulates the Filipino-Chinese ties. “Connections” loosely translates to guan xi, a relationship of one person or party to another with obligation built overtime or simply—reciprocity.
