ANGELES CITY, Pampanga — Mayor Edgardo D. Pamintuan is in Singapore attending the World Mayors Forum which is the highlight of the 5th World Cities Summit being held at the Marina Bay Sands.
A total of 110 mayors, governors, ministers and officials of international organization from all over the world attended the forum which is designed to take mayors and city leaders beyond just dialogue and sharing, to culminate in actionable outcomes for their respective cities.
With this year’s theme, “Liveable and Sustainable Cities: Innovative Cities of Opportunities”, the summit aims to explore how cities can better govern and build up resilience through policy, technology and social innovations.
“This is another opportunity for us to learn more of the best practices being implemented by other cities from the different parts of the world. Also, we are raising our city’s local governance to an international scale,” said Pamintuan.
During Session 1 entitled ”Innovative Solutions: New Answers to Wicked Problems,” the mayors shared their best practices on how they are innovating their approaches to some of their city’s toughest and long standing challenges in the areas of housing,  transportation,  economic development and sustainability.
Pamintuan imparted his experiences on how he was able to engage the national government in partnering with the local governments in providing housing for victims of natural calamities.
