DAVAO CITY – Another prestigious university institution is growing in the city thanks to a partnership with a local company.

Lafayette Lim, CEO of the NCCC Group of Companies, told the Davao Chamber of Commerce webinar on Wednesday that the University of Asia and the Pacific is building a business school as part of his company’s Panacan project.

“This would translate into future business leaders and skilled workers,” Lim said, although he did not provide more details on the project.

He cited the education sector among those “flourishing in this region, as the great well-known universities of the country are now present here in the city of Davao”.

Among those who have built their expansion campuses in the city lately are the Malaysian Colleges of Mapua University and the Philippine High School of the Laurel Group.

In Panabo City, the city of Davao del Norte which adjoins the northern part of the city, the University of the Philippines-Los Banos is also setting up its doctoral school in the Agriya mixed-use project of the Floirendo group.

The UA&P, according to its website, “Is a private, not-for-profit higher education institution that offers some of Asia’s most outstanding academic programs. “

The campus will be located in the new NCCC (New City Commercial Corp.) seven-hectare mixed-use project north of the city.

Although development of the new project has been delayed, the company said about five years ago that it would not only house a shopping center, but become the location of an international hotel brand.

Another plan of the project was to build a convention center near the hotel.

NCCC became synonymous with local retail after Lim’s grandfather, Lim Tian siu, set up a store along Magsaysay Avenue in 1978 which would become the group’s first department store.

It has since established its presence in Mindanao and Palawan, where it owns a shopping mall and complex.

Currently, the company’s plans include the redevelopment of Victoria Plaza, the city’s first shopping center that it bought from a bank that owned it from its owner, the late Robert Limso, and the shopping center and condominium project in what is its shopping center in Matina that a huge fire destroyed in 2017 that resulted in the deaths of 38 people.
