So this is how it works.

There are a couple of rules.

- No icons if you start a thread
- Use correct thread title format.

I had to fix this for you guys.

As for the city. It doesn't matter if you want to open a thread about a town with 100 inhabitants or a small city in the Phillipines. It is up to you.

As for the ridiculous comments you guys made, that is not appreciated. This guy 'Jarenz' only gave his opinion. He has the right to do so. No he does not decide whether you guys are allowed to start a thread about this or not, but that's not what he said. READ before you get offensive.

High rises do not make a city great my boy.

Don't be so sensitive guys or we might end like...... That is his opinion I guess. IMO, Davao is ready for this the Quality of LIFE says it all and not just from any other opinion who doesn't even have it.

Thanks Wadaboy for the appreciation on making this thread possible. Well, Davao has what it takes to be. For being dubbed as #83 fastest growing city in the world and #2 in the Philippines in 2005 (source: citymayors.com) i believe Davao can be at the top as possible. As all you can see in 2010 that many investments coming into Davao and 1/2 of the projects and construction (as I'd mentioned in the first) are built. For the record, Mayor Inday Sara Duterte mentioned in her first speech that she will prioritize investment, tourism and barangay developments in Davao. In fact her speech were becoming factual. Indeed, many investors are interested to invest in Davao.

@ Jarenz

I respect your opinion about Davao. But Davao's progress a couple of months before has steadfastly inclined compared to Manila and Cebu. Look at the mid-sized and proposed high-rise condominiums existed in Davao (specifically around the radius of ABREEZA Mall). The mall expansions and high-rise hotels (Lanang Area- soon to be the 2nd Downtown in Davao).

For the information of all forum addicts here. There are 10 Good Reason Why to Invest in Davao.

1. Linkages and Accessibility

Davao City is strategically located in Southeastern Philippines. It has air and sea linkages to major points of destination in the country and the rest of the world. Goods and people can also be transported by land via the Philippine-Japan Friendship highway. The new Davao International Airport is one of the busiest airports in the Philippines with daily flights to major destinations in the country. Davao City also serves as your gateway to the sub-regional trade bloc known as the East ASEAN growth area with direct flights to Singapore and Indonesia. Modern infrastructure and facilities present in the City provide businessmen access to the 25 million market of Mindanao and the 56 million market of the BIMP-EAGA.

2. Perfect Weather

The City is situated in a typhoon-free zone. The all-year round predictability of its tropical weather (sunshine by day and occasional rain showers by night) makes the place conducive for business, leisure, agriculture and other worthwhile activities.

3. Efficient Public Utilities

Davao City has excellent public utilities that offer the best products and services. There is abundance in the supply of (piped) potable water.
There is availability of cost-efficient electricity through hydropower generation. 24-hours a day power is assured by the able distribution of Davao Light with the availability of a back-up generation plant. State-of-the-art telecommunications facilities connect its people to the rest of the world. Players in the telecommunications industry (phone companies, Internet Service Providers, Cable-TV, computer vendors) have continually offered new products, services and innovations to keep the people abreast with the latest and even ahead.


4. Regional Center of Philippines South

The City is host to regional centers and headquarters of government and private agencies whose scope of operational jurisdiction covers Southern Philippines or the island of Mindanao. This is the reason why many organizations consider the City as the de facto capital of Mindanao. It is considered as the financial center of the Mindanao Island with more than 1,000 institutions classified as banks, non-bank financing, and lending agencies. The City is also the center for learning, education, and trainings in Mindanao with 39 tertiary education institutions classified as universities (including the University of the Philippines-Mindanao), colleges, and technical schools that regularly supply the City of needed expertise and manpower.

5. Most Peaceful City in Southeast Asia

Davao is one of the most peaceful cities in Asia with a monthly crime index of 0.8 cases per 10,000 persons per month. Its Davao Police Office is a consistent top pick for the Country’s Best Police Office Award. The City has also established the 911 central communications and emergency response center in 2002 to lessen crime incidences as well as preserve lives and properties.

6. Competitive Cost of Doing Business

In Davao City, quality products and services do not necessarily equate to high cost. Almost everything of quality in Davao City costs cheaper compared to other major cities. Rates of public utilities, real estate, rentals for commercial spaces, accommodations, labor, raw materials, and other business related inputs are comparatively cheaper than other major cities in Asia. This factor is seen vital in achieving a healthy return on investments.

7. Best Professional and Laborer

The City is home to the best professionals and laborers in Southern Philippines. Its human resources are touted as competent, highly literate, English-speaking and very cost-effective. Davao is the biggest producer of engineers, computer programmers, medical practitioners, accountants, lawyers, and other skilled labor in the region.

8. Fruit Basket of the Country

Almost all kinds of fruits grow in abundance in the City. It is host to a lot of fruit plantations and it is famous for its exotic Durian. The City is one of the biggest exporters of banana in Asia. Other fresh produce includes delectable delights such as the pomelo, mango, mangosteen, rambutan, strawberry, lanzones, and pineapple among others. Aside from this edge, the City functions as the trade-off point of Mindanao’s high value crops.

9. Investor-Friendly City

Investors are well taken cared of in Davao City. Being the pioneer city in establishing an investment promotion center that provides free professional assistance including processing of applications for local fiscal incentives, the local government sees to it that investors are provided the red carpet in starting business as easy as possible.

10. Responsive and Forward-Looking Local Government

The City Government of Davao is very positive on developmental projects. Infrastructure modernizations such as international standard airport, roads, bridges, and seaports are being done in response to the present challenges of the new millennium. The City’s goals, thrusts, and programs are being guided by the fundamental principles of sustainable development. Under the Comprehensive Development Plan for 1996-2021, the City’s priorities are: peace and order; health; environment; education and social services; shelter; livelihood; infrastructure; agriculture and fishery development; investment and tourism; revenue enhancement; sports development; and good governance.

IMO- An internet phrase used to safeguard statements from insecure people who will find any way possible to personally attack you while drawing an argument out of nothing, and act as if your opinion were fact, simply to boost their self-esteem that they lack in real life.

Stands for "In My Opinon". The most insecure way to state your opinion. Used by those afraid to get into a big argument with someone who disagrees with them.

Using IMO makes you a pansy of the internet message boards. If someone barks back at you for stating it as a fact, let them. If they don't understand that it's an opinion, that's their problem.

@ Jarenz

So be it! and build your own opinion!

Thank you @ nickywilliam for appreciating Davao. The city maintained its beauty in the face of spearheading metropolis across the border. The government made the city sustainable and economically efficient.

Understand that this is not just a picture thread. Keep us updated about projects. Don't randomly post pics of your city, that's what the photo forums are for.

FYI @ Ni3lS, i was looking some other threads here in SSC that they randomly post their pictures. I'm just trying to see those Davao pictures to forum addicts all over the world. Besides, this thread can freely post whatever they want to express their feelings and emotions. I uneven opposed their reply and i respect them, as long as they respect me. I'm not opposing your reply, but I'm fairly doing my part to broadcast my ideas to all.
