Boileau expressed interest in several areas, including agriculture, BPO outsourcing, agri-exports, and education. He also highlighted his special interest in the energy sector, particularly solar farms.
“We recently had a high-level economic dialogue with the Philippine government where we discussed collaboration on infrastructure, culture, education, agriculture, and security,” added Boileau.
Before the courtesy call, Boileau and Embassy representatives attended an Investment Briefing with the Davao City Investment Promotion Center. The embassy also organized a Business Forum on February 22.
The visit of the Canadian official is a promising opportunity for businesses in Davao City to strengthen their ties with Canadian businesses and expand their reach in international markets.
