Davao City — Ambassadors from South Africa and United Kingdom will meet Davao City business leaders to further expand trade and investments between the city and their countries.
“We will discuss different investments that could come in, especially for their businessmen eventually coming here. Probably, this will be a precursor to maybe bringing British or South African businessmen to come here and really have a look at Davao and see what they can really do here,” said Ronald Go, Davao City Chamber of Commerce and Industry Inc. (DCCCII) president.
Since January, 2017, three ambassadors — Indonesia, Pakistan, and Australia — have so far visited the city and met with the business leaders to look for areas in trade where they can engage in.
“More and more meetings between businessmen will come about. We found it is through business to business meetings that opportunities are covered and these opportunities become reality,” he added.
The DCCCII will hold the 4th Investment Conference (iCon) on July 21 to 22 at the SMX Convention Center here to showcase current investment trends and opportunities in infrastructures and connectivity, tourism, manufacturing, and agriculture.
