The Philippine TCM Center, Inc. is exploring the possibility of establishing a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) center in Cagayan de Oro.
"We are honored to have been visited by you and your interest in our city. We are a growing city south of the Philippines and we are the trading center in Northern Mindanao. As such, we are a melting pot of people, culture, and products," Mayor Rolando "Klarex" Uy said as he welcomed the officials of the Philippine TCM Center Inc.
The city mayor expressed his elation at the Philippine TCM Center's interest in setting up a TCM center as this does not only improve the health sector of the city but also its economic sector.
"After the pandemic hit us, we are now working on the recovery of businesses and the economy. This is our effort to invite and welcome many investments that will generate more jobs, and provide economic returns to the programs, services, and investments of the city. In the process, we are creating an environment where investments and enterprises flourish and generate better returns," Mayor Klarex Uy said.
On Friday afternoon, February 10, 2023, a consultation meeting was held at the City Mayor's Office, attended by Mayor Klarex Uy, City Administrator Atty. Roy Raagas, Philippine TCM Center Inc. President Dr. Qiming Zheng, Philippine TCM Center Inc. Assistant of the CEO Jazmine Maglipon, Associate Acupuncturist and TCM Online Project Officer of the Philippine TCM Center Inc. Kathryn Lopez, Cagayan de Oro Filipino-Chinese Community Chairman Greg Marten Lao, Dr. Marie Jee Valdevilla of the JR Borja General Hospital, and ORO-TIPC Head John Asuncion.
