Koreans Are Here in Davao
I got a good friend from Korea. We became friends when I was looking for somebody to fix my computer. During that time, my pc was almost a piece of junk. Luckily, this korean guy was able to help me restore my pc and now its in good condition. He owns this nice PC store inside Gaisano Mall in Bajada. They also offer repair service so it was nice to have them as friends such that I could ask for a bargain which really helps me in saving cash.
In Davao, he is not the only Korean in town. Koreans thrive in this city putting up businesses here and there. I just read a not so old news article from Inquirer about a big time Korean firm and it tickles my fancy. It’s because unlike my Korean PC shop owner friend, this big time Korean firm is keen on pouring a lot of investment money in the city. Take a look at those outlined infos below:
Country: South Korea
Firm: Good Morning Davao
Chief Executive Officer: Young II Han
Age of Firm: 1 year
Projects Phase 1
1. 120-unit residential hotel
Location: Buhangin, Davao city

2. Resort and residential farm subdivision

Cost: P60 million
Projects Phase 2
1. Resort with 27-hole golf course and a subdivision
Location: Davao City
Area: 760 hectars
Cost: P9 billion
Projects Phase 3
1. Industrial Park

Open for invitation to electronic and computer companies from Japan and South Korea to put up projects geared for exports.
They outlined their very ambitious projects in 3 phases, it’s also a long term goal so they will be staying for good. Those projects are huge too and will benefit a lot of people living in Davao specially the ones looking for jobs. An indicator that Davao has a booming economy and its right on track to become a global city.
What can I say but to welcome this Koreans and treat them not as guests but as fellow Dabawenyos. Welcome brothers!
