Business leaders lauds MILF peace efforts

Business leaders in Mindanao has praised the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) for its efforts to conduct a series of dialogues with the business sector, one of which was held in Davao City in May.

The MILF-business leaders’ dialogue opens more avenues for the MILF and business to work together for the future of Mindanao, said a businessman from Davao City who attended the dialogue held at the Waterfront Insular Hotel.

Mohagler Iqbal of the MILF peace panel said one of the most difficult sectors to address is the business sector “because of its quick ability in reading situations.”

“The MILF is not against development, provided it is not development aggression, one that makes people the victim, not the beneficiaries,” Iqbal in his speech before the business leaders.

Datu Aaron Bandilla, chair of Mindanao Business Council, said his group composed of Mindanao business leaders is backing the MILF effort for business to prosper in Mindanao.

We will support the dialogue with MILF as it will benefit the entire Mindanao, he said.
