About Davao Philippines
Davao City is the premier City and hub of Mindanao.It is a
"Crown Jewel" of Mindanao in terms of economic activity. It is
the most important economy in the island and the third most
important urban center in the Philippines.
Like the rest of the country, Davao City operates on an economic
system that is market-oriented, although pricing mechanisms
remain regulated in a few sectors (particularly on basic
commodities) to protect consumers. The competitiveness of the
market has been enhanced through the dismantling of protection
for "infant industries" and the breakdown of industries with
monopolistic or cartel tendencies.
On the international front, the economy has been opened to
global competition, through a tariff, private investments has
Davao City's economy is steadily growing in the last two
decades. The City has shifted counting investments from millions
in the '80s to billions in the '90s and pool of skilled
workforce. With close to 1.5-Million people as primary market
base, the city is conducive to business as evidenced by the
presence of the country's top 200 companies. Inflow of

the City is now a billion dollar industry with a growing niche
market for its products. The stable banana and flourishing
pineapple industries are among the country's leading export
commodities. A net exporter since 1987, Davao City largely
contributed in making the Philippines as the world's top
exporter of papaya, mangosteen, and even flowers.
Araw ng Dabaw It is not for their lack of sense of history that the modern
Dabawenyo of today remembers their city more for its economic
strides than its past. Dabawenyos feel proud about the rich customs
and traditions of the early settlers and tribal natives of the late
1800s or the early 1900s. But if a short time frame limits their
sense of history, this is because the true Dabawenyo identity is
young, a modern mix of early Christian pioneers from Luzon and the
Visayas, and the tribal natives.
