The event, called “Nanning Day in Davao City”, celebrates the 10-year friendship between Davao City and Nanning. This will highlight and promote bilateral exchange in the fields of trade and commerce, health, and culture.

Chinese cultural performances will be held at the Abreeza Mall of Davao on June 9 — to be presented by the Nanning Art and Theatre Co., Ltd., a state-owned cultural company rated as an A art troupe by the national authority of China.

An exclusive art exhibition titled “Beautiful Nanning” will also be presented, featuring photography works themed on sites, landmarks, natural scenery and culture of the beautiful city of Nanning.

A Nanning business delegation, composing of 20 companies in the sectors of agriculture, education, tourism, traditional Chinese medicine, manufacturing, and construction, will also hold a product exhibition during the event to seek possible partnership with Davao-based enterprises.

The trade and investment exhibition will also feature local companies as part of business exchange activities between the two cities.

The event is organized by the Municipal Government of Nanning, with support from the Embassy of the People’s Republic of China in the Philippines and the Consulate General of the People’s Republic of China in Cebu.

“Nanning Day in Davao City” also coincides with the Filipino-Chinese Friendship Day, which was signed through Presidential Proclamation No. 148 in 2002 by former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. DCIPC/CIO
