          The entire workforce of the Cooperative Development Authority Regional Office 11 was overwhelmingly thankful and overjoyed on a sunny day of March 17, 2023 for the Inauguration of their new office building.  After 33 years of existence as a government agency, they will finally have their own building they can call their own. The new office location is at SPMC Compound, Friendship Road, Bajada, Buhangin District, Davao City.

          The celebration started with the blessing of the office building by Rev. Fr.

The unveiling of the office’s marker followed as initiated by the CDA Chairman, Undersecretary Joseph B. Encabo together with his BOD Members, Assistant Secretaries Abdulsalam A.

CDA Davao Regional Director Ruben L. Cunanan introduced the Guest Speaker, USec. Joseph B. Encabo, who extended his wholehearted gratitude to the representatives of Southern Philippines Medical Center (SPMC), DPWH and COOP-NATCCO, for making it possible for CDA to transfer and construct its own building.
