The much-anticipated Davao Investment Conference (Davao ICon) 2023 was a huge success. One of the main goals was to attract real estate and job-generating investments to the vibrant Davao. Spearheaded by the Davao City Chamber of Commerce and Industry Inc. (DCCCII), this conference aims to unlock the city’s potential as a prime business, investment, and job opportunity destination.
Davao ICon’s President, John Carlo Tria, emphasized the crucial role of real estate developments in luring potential investors to consider Davao as their next business venture. With an array of property developments in the city, investors are presented with an attractive proposition and a seamless entry into the bustling economic landscape.
“We have a lot of property developments that are going to welcome our investments because when you have already properties it’s easier for investors to consider Davao as a destination” Tria said.
Tria highlighted the significance of real estate’s synergistic effect on driving investments in various sectors. He anticipates an influx of investments from IT companies, retail enterprises, service providers, and more, driven by the burgeoning property market in Davao. Moreover, the conference will actively promote agri-processing and manufacturing sectors, aimed at adding value to the region’s agricultural products.
This prestigious event has garnered overwhelming support, with nearly 300 delegates from local and international private and public sectors enthusiastically participating. An exciting open exhibit is showcasing investments and promotions from a diverse range of companies, public offices, and organizations, providing a unique platform for business interaction and collaboration.
Nicole Hao Bian-Ledesma, the chair of Davao ICon 2023, expressed the conference’s vision of being forward-thinking in preparing businesses for a resilient future.
“Our conference’s aim is to be forward thinking to prepare businessmen not just to succeed today but really more importantly as the pandemic taught us to future-proof our businesses hence, we will focus on tourism, manufacturing, agro-processing, and ICT (information communications technology) as drivers for growth,” Ledesma said.
