Davao forges ‘sisterhood’ with Sennan

DAVAO CITY — The Davao City Investment Promotion Center revealed that the Davao City International Relations Board is set to approve Sennan City in Japan as Davao’s newest sister city.

DCIPC officer-in-charge April Marie Dayap said a recent virtual meeting with Sennan City Hall officials discussed areas for possible collaboration that include the education, tourism and economic sectors.

“Forging the sister city relations is instrumental in the economic collaboration of both our cities,” Dayap said, adding that the proposal of Sennan for a sisterhood agreement with this city was made as early as 2019, but was deferred due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“Currently, the approving body, which is the Davao City International Relations Board, is awaiting additional information and documents from Sennan to finalize the approval process,” Dayap said.

She added that Davao City is looking forward to “people to people” exchange through education, as well as information exchange between organizations such as cooperatives, tourism associations and chambers of commerce.
