Uy respects consumer's preference
by Jean Duron-Abangan
Tagum City (27 November) -- Tagum City Mayor Rey T. Uy is open-minded on what goods his constituents will bring into their homes particularly with the proliferation of China-made merchandise.
In a press conference during the recent visit of a delegation from the Embassy of People's Republic of China, he bared the growing number of Chinese merchants doing business in Tagum City.
Though coming from Chinese ancestry, and that Chinese goods are noticeably sold at low prices, he said he would not tell buyers what to prefer.
"We can't say don't buy this one or that. It is up to the local people. Everybody has the chance which goods to buy," he said.
Uy revealed that 20 Chinese from mainland China are in the city engaging in general merchandise.
In the same occasion, Honorable Wu Chian Hua, secretary to the Chinese Consul General of the Embassy of the People's Republic of China noted Tagum City to grown into a "bustling center of culture, commerce, health, services and entertainment in the Davao Region." (PIA XI) [top]
