Manila, Philippines— In pursuit of growth and potential partnership that aims to stimulate the Philippine tourism and economy, AppLabs Digital Studios Inc.’s (ADSI) Managing Director Oliver Ian Atienza and Chairman of the Board Azhar Khan travelled to Davao City Investments and Promotions Center on April 29 to May 2, 2013 to inspect and discover new business prospects in the city.
ICT Davao President Bert Barriga, along with some representatives from the City Agricultural Office and Department of Trade and Industry in Davao, proudly discussed the city’s respectable governance and high public safety procedures to the ADSI team. At present, Davao City is also making a name as one of the finest investment destinations in the Philippines. Its opulent agriculture made them as one of the most sought-after business spots in the country. With this, both teams are now looking forward to pursuing ICT and IT-enabled Agricultural business projects that will be beneficial to both ends.
Apart from the agriculture and IT discussion, Mr. Atienza introduced to the Davao City representatives the R.U.S.H. (Responding to Urgency and Swift to Help) app. Davao is identified as the only city that uses the 911 system apart from the United States and Canada. Upon learning the immediate help that the app brings, Davao’s core team – Investment Promotions Specialist Ernest M. Tomas Jr., OIC – City Agriculturist Val Turtur, Davao’s Trade and Industry Development Specialist Lilia D. Silda, City Agriculturist Officer Nenita M. Delos Santos, and Torres Matunog Gevieso Montero & Associates’ Managing Partner Samuel R. Matunog – instantly showed interest to making the R.U.S.H. app a part of the command system in their place.
Meanwhile, some Davao City representatives are expected to visit ADSI’s headquarter on May 10 to further see the daily operations and facilities of the company and discuss the pending partnership and business ventures.
