DAVAO CITY (MindaNews/21 July) — The new leadership of the Philippine
Chamber of Commerce and Industry has recently asked the Davao City Chamber
of Commerce and Industry to rejoin the Manila-based national business group,
an official of the chamber said.
Sebastian Angliongto, DCCCII lifetime chair, said in an interview with
MindaNews Thursday new PCCI president Samuel Lim asked the chamber to return
to PCCI after its disaffiliation last year over a misunderstanding on

regional chambers. Read More…

The script includes a scene with the actor planting “pechay” along a muddy portion of the Surigao highway.
We thought of a genuine scene so we dropped by Tandag’s public market early morning to buy the green leafy vegetable.
