Duterte asks businessmen to help Sulu

President Rodrigo Duterte dined with businessmen on Tuesday night, in a bid to push for the economic development of Sulu.

The event in Malacañang was dubbed, “Negosyo para sa Kapayapaan sa Sulu.”

Presidential Consultant for Entrepreneurship and GoNegosyo Founder Joey Concepcion III was among the organizers.

Government wants to convince investors to see business opportunities in Sulu, an island currently infested with local terrorists Abu Sayyaf and other bandit groups.

During the dinner, development projects such as building basic infrastructures like telecommunication facilities and power plants in the island province were presented.

Former President and now Pampanga Representative Gloria Arroyo was among those who attended the affair.
