Phil Star – SM Prime Holdings Inc., one of the largest integrated property developers in Southeast Asia, signed a memorandum of understanding with Cagayan de Oro City and the National Resilience Council supporting the NRC’s new Adopt-A-City Campaign.

Under the three-year program, corporations can directly invest in reducing the city’s risk including both the old and new hazards, and in supporting the partnership’s long-term resilience programs. The NRC is co-chaired by Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana representing the government, and sole Filipino ARISE Global board member Hans Sy representing the private sector.
