The City Government of Cagayan de Oro will tender a special social gathering for all foreign nationals to be dubbed as the “International Night” which will form part as one of the highlights of Cagayan de Oro City’s fiesta celebration this year.
This was revealed recently by City Mayor Constantino G. Jaraula even as he invites all foreign nationals to join in the affair by having their names registered with the City Tourism and Cultural Affairs Office at City Hall.
The city government’s hosting of the “International Night”, probably the ‘first-of-its-kind’ to happen during the city fiesta celebrations on August 28, basically aims to give due recognition and appreciation to all foreigners, who in one way or another, contributed to the rapid progress and development of Cagayan de Oro City, City Tourism Officer Imma Rae D. Gatuslao said. The one-night affair will also serve as a simple tribute and honor to all foreigners who decided to reside permanently in Cagayan de Oro City or make the city as their place of business or pursue higher education, Gatuslao added.
It can be recalled that Mayor Jaraula conceived the idea of hosting the “International Night” as part of his recent promotional blitz to local and foreign tourists and businessmen to make Cagayan de Oro as their ‘weekend home’, ‘vacation home’, ‘second home’ and ‘retirement home’. Mayor Jaraula’s new name branding of the city hopes to complement Cagayan de Oro City’s usual tagline as the…”City of Golden Friendship and of Golden Opportunities- The Compelling Gateway to Northern Mindanao.”
Interested foreigners who want to register may visit the City Tourism and Cultural Affairs Office located at the ground floor of the Tourism Hall, City Hall or call telephone number 8574281 local 608 for more details and inquiries.
