Imagine the Philippines without Henry Sy as many Filipino mourns for his death at 94 years old. Mr Sy passed away peacefully in his sleep in the early morning of Saturday, January 19, 2019.
The Philippines will never be as competitive without the firm vision of Mr Sy. As he turns back the time, he will not forget the rags to riches story as he battles the story from the world war II.
His commendable dedication and spirit of casting vision as he leads the business tycoons in the country is one of the greatest memory in the business community.
Tatang Henry Sy delivered his message at the Management Association of the Philippines Man of the Year in 2000.
