‘E ‘DI WOW!” Cebu Guv Davide flies to Japan to invite investors
Cebu Gov. Hilario Davide III has left for Japan to entice more Japanese investors to invest in the province.
The son of former Supreme Court Chief Justice Hilario Davide, Jr. said the week-long trip will also boost Cebu’s Private-Public Partnership (PPP) program.
“We were invited by the Toyo University study team to attend the presentation of their final report together with Japanese business community for possible business ventures and to participate in the international PPP forum,” the governor was quoted in a story by the Manila Bulletin.
Toyo University Asia PPP Institute conducted the PPP study in Cebu from February 2-8 this year, focusing on four key areas such as land use plan, health services, disaster preparedness, and the Mega Cebu development plan.
Davide’s delegation include provincial board members Peter John Calderon, chair of the committee on health and co-author of Cebu’s investment code; Christopher Baricuatro, author of Cebu’s investment code and PPP ordinance; and Jude Thaddeus Durano-Sybico, vice chair of the committee on planning and development.
From Tokyo, Davide and the Cebu delegation will proceed to Yokohama City and to Saitama Prefecture to meet the local officials as well as private companies and public institutions.
In Yokohama, the governor has scheduled meetings with Mansei Recycling Systems, and other business companies under the Yokohama Partnership. Mansei Recycling Systems implemented a small plastic recycling plant at Inayawan Landfill in Cebu City under JICA-Cebu City Agreement.
