Davao allots P69.3m for Palarong Pambansa

DAVAO City — The city government of Davao has allotted P69.3 million as its counterpart to fund the conduct of the Palarong Pambansa 2019.

City Administrator lawyer Zuleika Lopez said the city government has allocated P69,332,700 as the “commitment of the city in hosting the Palarong Pambansa.”

The commitment of the city government is among the considerations why the education department and other stakeholders have chosen Davao City as host of this year’s national games.

The city government will also provide service vehicles for delegations for marketing and other errand purposes and separate air-conditioned vehicles to ferry members of the national working committees and technical officials to and from the billeting quarters and playing venues.

Each delegation will also receive 15 sacks of rice, 70 kilos of beef and chicken, or its appropriate equivalent for the whole duration of the event and fruits like banana, durian, mangosteen, pineapple, and pomelo.

Delegates will also have a free wifi connection for authorized users in all playing venues while drinking waters will be available in all the playing venues.

Part of the funding allotment of the city government will be for the food of security personnel who will ensure the safety of all delegates and visitors during the event, Lopez said.

“We allotted P10 million for the food of our security personnel,” Lopez added.

Assistant City Administrator Atty. Lawrence Bantiding also told reporters that the city government will deploy around 2,000 security personnel during the duration of the Palarong Pambansa 2019, from April 26 to May 4. (
