Rellon, a visionary leader, wants Tagum to be the next “hotspot” for investors, developers and other stakeholders to consider pouring their ventures into.
He also vowed to implement more programs and projects that will posit positive changes that will establish Tagum City as a highly recognized center of MICE.
