Mayor Inday Sara Duterte and some officials of the city are on a weeklong study tour program in Japan to learn more about the country’s urban planning and infrastructure development.
The study tour from April 15-21 was sponsored by the Japanese International Cooperation Agency (JICA).
“This is a continued cooperation with JICA and the Japanese government, particularly to implement the Infrastructure Masterplan for Davao,” the mayor said.
During the study tour, Mayor Inday and the other officials will attend a series of lectures on Tokyo Urban Planning, Suburban Area Science City planning, Murasaki River Pollution Prevention and Kitakyushu Environmental and International Strategy.
They will also visit the Tokyo Traffic Control Center, Ochiai Sewage Plant, Railway Transit Oriented Development, Moji Port Tourism Development, Murasaki River, and other sites to experience Japan’s infrastructure development first-hand.
The other officials included in Mayor Inday’s party are Councilor Mabel Sunga-Acosta, the chair of the Sangguniang Panlungsod’ Peace and Order and Public Safety; Manuel Cellona from the City Engineer’s Office, Jose Froilan Rigor from the City Planning Office; and Melencio Diaz, Jr., the officer-in-charge of the Motor Vehicle Registration of the Land Transportation Office.
