BOI Executive Director Bobby Fondevilla highlighted at the Davao Investment Conference in “Davao Region: Strong Today, Stronger Tomorrow,” investment opportunities particularly in real estate, tourism, manufacturing, and agribusiness with its enablers such as ICT, academe & infrastructure that are available in the region.

Fondevilla noted that investments in the Davao region received P8.26 billion worth of investments in 2019, but the amount was halved to P4.96 billion in 2020.

For 2019, the largest amount of investments in the region came from real estate activities with P3.19 billion followed by Electricity, Gas, Steam, and Air Conditioning Supply with P2.19 billion. At the third spot was manufacturing with P2.02 billion.

At the third spot was agriculture, forestry, and fishing with P636.6 million. Other sources of investments include human health and social work activities (P139.87 million) and administrative and support service activities (P15 million).
