Teresita Sy Coson of SM was in Davao to attend the city’s local chamber’s business conference. She was able to impart business techniques and their company’s vision for Mindanao. She was able to share positive feedback about the city’s growth and SM is very optimistic with the economy of Davao City.
Being around the country and with investments in key cities, it is interesting to note how graceful and positive she is towards the current economic upward trend in Davao.
“I think we see Davao is growing quite fast and I think we like to serve this community, and not only that, you see around you, there is really a less stressful environment and it’s good to be working in this kind of environment than what we have in Manila.” said Teresita Sy Coson.
Teresita Sy Coson is the daughter of Henry Sy, owner of SM and one of the respected tycoons in the country today.
“Many times we wish that our head office is here in Davao. We have cleaner city, we have cleaner air, less traffic and a less stressful environment. We like to be more here, knowing how rich Mindanao is in resources, how cosmopolitan Davao is right now and how dynamic its people are,” she said.
Her company is currently constructing the second SM mall in Davao City. It will be located in the former Lanang Country Club, a mixed use multi billion project. Under construction today is the mall which will include an international brand hotel by Radisson called Park Inn. A convention center will also be built in the area. It is also the area for the planned condominium projects of SM.
