Farming friends: VM Paolo Duterte preps agri forum in Shanghai

Unlike fishing in disputed waters, China and the Philippines are best friends in farming.

Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte is deep into preparations for a joint agricultural forum between Davao City and Shanghai in December, which would be among the first manifestations of a recent deal he signed with his counterpart Vice Mayor Chen Yin.

Davao and Shanghai officials are putting together the 2016 China-Philippines Agricultural Forum, which comes months after President Rodrigo Duterte signalled stronger ties with China during his four-day visit in October. What better way to kick off this arrangement than by starting with his hometown!
