At the press conference the JCI world President Kentaro Harada (Japan) told the members of the press that this conference is one of the best opportunities for them to exchange ideas and goals for future impact . He also said that in Manila , JCI will continue to promote Active citizenship, the need for positive change and how fellow JCI members can help lead communities to a brighter future.

The president also encourage JCI members to attend all the seminars , workshops and  group discussions because by actively participating to all workshops only they can help the JCI in their mission and vision while gaining also the skills that will require them on how to become the leader of their community needs.
