Like father, like son: VM Paolo Duterte teams up Davao with Shanghai

Take it as a follow-through for his dad’s pivot to China.

Just days after President Rodrigo Duterte flew to China for a four-day state visit, his son Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte followed to Shanghai. Much like his father’s persistence to open up greater trade with China, the Duterte son met with his counterpart Shanghai Vice Mayor Chen Yin to discuss bilateral operations with Davao City.

They even traded symbolic gifts: Duterte gave a mini durian replica, while his counterpart gave a gong replica.
Cheers for new friends!
