Some members of the business leaders were amazed by Davao City’s central 911 and it’s Security Command Center. Because of what they saw, they have high hopes that incoming President Rodrigo Duterte can fulfill his promised at his election campaign to improve our economy by minimizing the crimes in our country.

Davao City Impresses Business Leaders
Davao City is known for having a system in responding emergencies so, the business leaders are hoping that Duterte can implement this kind of law nationwide. Guillermo Luz of National Competitiveness Council told the media that he had seen a lot of operation centers in various countries but he was impressed by the southern city’s own emergency center.

Davao has their own version of emergency houses and a huge bus that can accommodate 17 people. There is also a center that monitors accidents and crimes by having 190 CCTV cameras. Peter Wallace also agreed with Luz and stated that people laugh at Duterte when he said that the country will be crime-free in a period of 6 months when he will finally lead the country starting June 30 but he thinks that it can be possible if the whole country can have this kind of discipline like in Davao City.

President-elect Rodrigo met more than 300 members of business sectors last June 21 held at SMX Convention Center at Lanang, Davao City to discuss the next administration’s 10 point economic agenda.The event was entitled “Sulong Pilipinas: Hakbang Tungo sa Kaunlaran that was led by Carlos Dominguez, the upcoming secretary for Department of Finance.

Recently, Duterte’s team for economy presented the 8 point economic agenda but now they added the Reproductive Health Law (RH Law) and focuses on arts, science and technology. This convention highlighted the ways for our economic growth by having open forums and workshops with Duterte and the business leaders. On the 2nd day, the business leaders presented their recommendations.
