General Santos City and Clark Development Corporation (CDC) have agreed to strengthen investment cooperation.
This was contained in the Declaration of Joint Intent to Strengthen Linkages Between General Santos City and Clark Freeport Zone signed by Gensan Mayor Ronnel C. Rivera and CDC President Noel Manankil in a ceremony held at Clark in Pampanga Thursday, September 13.
The declaration aims to organize trade and business missions to highlight trade, tourism and investments prospects between the two areas, the city government said.
They also intend to exchange information and best practices on important areas such as agro-industrial development, tourism, air transport and logistics, land management and environmental protection.
