This appreciation was announced yesterday in a regular press conference held at the People’s House. "I would be grateful though people in Mindanao are asking for this but not of the site chosen. I would like to thank the private sector, the peace and order, our power better than some areas in the Philippines," Puentevella added.

Mayor Puentevella said that he was so happy with the development that our City will be one with Iloilo City, Cebu City, Manila and Boracay as sites for Asia Pacific Economic Conference. Last September 30, 2014, Marciano A. Paynor Jr., Director General of APEC National Organizing Committee had informed Mayor Puentevella that a team from their office (APEC-NOC) is planning an initial visit in our City of Smiles on October 14-15, 2014.

However, since the Local Chief Executive is occupied now with the Masskara events, the sites visit will be held after October where they undertake an ocular inspection of the hotel venues, airport facilities and cultural sites that are proposed to be used for the Philippines’ hosting of APEC in 2015.
