Emano to meet Aussie-RP biz group execs
Cagayan de Oro City (13 October) -- City Mayor Vicente Y. Emano is expected to meet with the members of the Australia-Philippines Business Council (APBC) during a scheduled high-level luncheon business forum in Sydney, Australia today, October 12.
Emanoís business meeting with about 15 to 20 members of the APBC hopes to provide an avenue to discuss two-way business opportunities between the two countries.
It may be recalled that Emano left last weekend to lead a group of local businessmen and trade officials in a trade mission to Australia and nearby New Zealand hoping to attract more foreign investors to consider the vast prospects of investment here in Cagayan de Oro and Misamis Oriental.
After the business forum, Emano and party will meet with the Smithfield-Wetherill Park Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Inc., where he is set to talk and present the city and regionís business opportunities before Australian businessmen.
The group is also scheduled to meet with the top executives of Leighton Holdings Ltd. for a possible trade tie-up before proceeding to New Zealand.
Before leaving, Emano is hopeful that their business trip will bring in more investors from Australia and New Zealand who will establish their business in Cagayan de Oro and elsewhere in Mindanao.
The city mayor reiterated that the influx of investments here in the city will readily translate into more job opportunities for the local residents and increased revenue for the city government to implement better and improved social services. (City Information Office/RAGCOM) [top]
