Councilor Danilo Dayanghirang is eyeing possible China investments in various infrastructure in the city including a water system.
“I hope we can include the problem of water in the incoming infrastructure projects for the city,” Dayanghirang said, even as he lamented the continuous lack of water supply for the city’s second district.
He said the city’s water system should be opened to other investors aside from the Davao City Water District as the latter seemed incapable of providing efficient water supply to the city.
Dayanghirang, who represented Mayor Sara Duterte during the visit of Chinese Vice Premier Wang Yang in the city last week, said delegation from China will be sent to Davao next month to look into possible projects and investments in the city.

“The Chinese government is committed to investing not only in Davao but also in the Philippines,” Dayanghirang said.
The ambassador of China is also set to visit the city next month. The visit of different Chinese officials in the city was in line with the scheduled visit of President Rodrigo Duterte to Beijing next month. Lovely Carillo
