THE DAVAO City government held a three-day roadshow in Seoul, South Korea last week to boost trade and tourism ties.

“Over 50 Korean businessmen joined the Davao City Business Forum held at the Philippine Embassy in Seoul, Korea,” Lemuel G. Ortonio, head of the Davao City Investment and Promotions Center (DCIPC), said in a statement.

Mr. Ortonio said among the products that interested Korean businessmen were cacao beans and nibs, seaweeds, and pet (polyethylene terephthalate) bottle recycling machines. The Davao delegation, with assistance from the Department of Tourism, also organized a product presentation of Davao City to Korean tour operators. They also joined an investment meeting with the Korea Chamber of Commerce and Industry and visited the Seoul Food Expo and the Kintex International Convention Center. “The visit to these places and events provided a very good opportunity to learn their best practices and to gain insight on market sensing and surveying,” Mr. Ortonio said.
