Sister cities

 

Mayors Rodrigo Duterte and Chen Xiangqun of Davao and Nanning, China, respectively, seal their sister city pact with the firm handshake yesterday at the Marco Polo Hotel.

Nanning is the designated gateway city of China to the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).

Davao is the de facto capital of the East ASEAN Growth Area (EAGA) in the Brunei-Indonesia-Malaysia-Philippines (BIMP) sub-region.

One of the key issues the two discussed yesterday was my City Council Resolution seeking the re-opening of the Chinese Consular office in Davao.
