Philippines’ Fastest Growing Urban City – DAVAO CITY!

13 11 2011

Davao City ranked 87th from the 200 cities ranked as the Fastest Growing Cities and Urban Areas in the world as being cited by, a web-based research group known as the City Mayors Foundation.

“The research group was established in 2003 and has become one of the most-trusted sources of research data on performances of cities and its leaders.

Jakarta, Indonesia ranked 47th and topped among cities and urban areas in the 10-member Association of South East Asian Nations (Asean)…It is followed by two more Indonesian cities Palembang and Bandung, which ranked 50th and 55th, respectively.” –NEWS

“Yangon in Myanmar ranked 95th, with 2.46 projected average annual growth rate. Metro Manila in the Philippines ranked 190th, with a projected annual growth rate of 1.5 percent.

“It is good that Davao has been recognized for its development,” Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte said.

She said despite this recognition, the city must still sustain its robust economy.

Duterte called on Dabawenyos to cooperate in sustaining the city’s growth.
City Information Office acting chief Bong Aportadera said the recognition will help boost Davao City’s niche as one of the country’s top investment destinations.

“It is a proof that a strong leadership produces great result. There is nowhere to go but up,” Aportadera said. (Sun.Star Davao/Sunnex)” – NEWS
