“Cagayan de Oro is a success story in resiliency after the Sendong and other disasters.” These were the words proudly uttered by Mayor Oscar Moreno to other ASEAN leaders in a conference held at Lee Kuan Yew University’s School of Public Policy in Singapore. Mayor Moreno was among the 40 chosen mayors from the Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, and Vietnam invited by the Singaporean government to interact and share their expertise to the Singaporean leaders and other international experts in the field of resiliency planning.
Mayor Moreno joined mayors Allan Rellon of Tagum City, Maria Isabelle Climaco Salazar of Zamboanga City, Belen Fernandez of Dagupan City, John Bongat of Naga City, Jed Patrick Mabilog of Iloilo City, Monico Puentevilla of Bacolod City, and Alfred Romualdez of Tacloban City. In line with this, Mayor Moreno is set to invite Singaporean investors to the City of Golden Friendship.
