CHINESE investors plan to put up a port hub for direct cargo shipment from China to Iloilo City and vice versa.
Mayor Jose Espinosa III welcomed executives of SITC Container Lines Philippines, Inc. and Cebu Chinese consulate at City Hall November 7.
“We would be very thankful to have a port hub direct from China to Iloilo soon. And hopefully, we can also put up a Chinese consulate here; we’ll make a way to provide them an office,” said Espinosa.
SITC Container Lines Phils is the representative of SITC Container Lines Co. based in Shanghai China and is engaged in the operation of its own and chartered vessels carrying containerized cargoes within major ports in Asia.
Iloilo City’s business-enabling environment was presented to prospective investors during the meeting by Local Economic and Investment Promotion Office (LEIPO) head Ritchel Gavan. (Iloilo City PIO)
