A modest dinner between First District Congressman of Davao City, Paolo Z. Duterte, and the Chinese Consul General in Davao City, Li Lin, reaffirms continuing friendship between the two nations and specifically identifies the program which will be supported by government of China in Davao City;
On July 9, 2022, the top two officials in Davao City had met in the residence of the Consul General following the latter’s invitation to the former for a table blowout;
It was during the same occasion that the Chinese Consul General presented to Hon. Duterte the program which the government of China will support under latter’s fresh term and the present government of the Republic of the Philippines. In the said meeting, the support for the livelihood programs for the Indigenous Peoples (IPs) of Davao City was the highlight of the conversation.
Congressman Duterte in turn manifested his full support to the program and in fact committed to Consul General Li Lin that he is willing to work hand in hand with the consular office, all for the purpose of alleviating socio-economic condition of our IP brothers and sisters in Davao City;
Likewise, the meeting opened the opportunity for Hon. Duterte to express his gratitude and profound appreciation for the continuing support of the Government of the People’s Republic of China to the infrastructure projects undertaken by the Philippine government and to the many programs that revitalized Philippine economy.
Clearly, this is another step to a proper direction and a very bright future for the two nations. The First Congressional District of Davao City through Representative Paolo Z. Duterte will ensure that the program will be properly managed so as to guarantee full support to all our Indigenous Peoples in Davao City.
