INVESTMENTS and tourism in Davao City are not affected by the recent lifting of the ceasefire and scrapping of peace talks between the government and the Communist Party of the Philippines-New People's Army- National Democratic Front of the Philippines (CPP-NPA-NDF), officials said.

Davao City Investment Promotions Office (DCIPC) chief Lemuel Ortonio on Thursday said that since the withdrawal of the truce between the government and revolutionary movement, they have not noted any backing out of potential investors in the city.

"We have not received any communication from those who signified interest to conduct business mission or cancellation of their visit here," he said.

Despite the lifting of the truce, he said there are still interested investors, citing that a group is set to invest in the city later this year.

He attributed this to the intensified security and joint efforts of the members of the Davao City Peace and Order Council (CPOC) including Task Force Davao (TFD), Davao City Police (DCPO), Joint Task Force Haribon and Public Safety and Security Command Center (PSSCC), among others in maintaining the peace and order of the city.

Ortonio is poised that as long as authorities ensure the security and safety of local and foreign businessmen as well as the public, Davao City will continue to be attractive to investors and business opportunities.

Meanwhile, Davao City Tourism Office head Generose Tecson said that they have not received any report on tourists who are afraid to come to the city.
