Thursday, November 17, 2016

The City of Golden Friendship, Cagayan de Oro, is one of the choices for ASEAN Summit other than Davao City this upcoming February 2017 – the third time that PH will host the event following 1987 and 2007.

DPWH Regional Office X is now undergoing rigorous preparations for the milestone event.

Two District Engineering Offices (DEOs) – Misamis Oriental 2nd DEO and Cagayan de Oro 1st DEO were already instructed to ensure the stability, cleanliness and safety of roads for the ASEAN delegates.

Maintenance Division Chief, Virgincita R. Lomotos, together with the Assistant Director from Bureau of Maintenance Maria Visna M. Manio already inspected the road from Laguindingan Airport to Limketkai road as of the city’s location for business establishments. They also checked the road leading to the location for the White Water Rafting attraction.

Numerous observations were enumerated and expected to be rectified and improved in January 2017 to make sure that CDO, if ever chosen, will be completely ready for the event.

Everybody is looking forward that the 50th founding anniversary of ASEAN will be a success hoping that the city will mark a good impression to the guests and will be an opportunity for bigger investments in the City of Golden Friendship.
