BENGUET’s capital town of La Trinidad continues to broaden partnerships outside the country following the signing of a twin sister agreement with Jincheon, South Korea.
Mayor Romeo Salda Jincheon’s Deputy Speaker Park Yang Gyu on March 17 formally signed the agreement of opening their doors for partnership in the growth and development.
La Trinidad Tourism Officer Valred Olsim said the agreement with Jincheon will significantly generate opportunities for the municipality especially in the livelihood, agriculture, tourism, and exchanges of ideas in running the government.
Olsim added the government of Jincheon gladly suggested they would be assisting La Trinidad in producing green houses for the plantation of strawberries and other crops in the municipality.
In return, Olsim said La Trinidad will open its universities and education institutions to Jincheon City for its constituents to learn the english language.
Olsim added this will also open another economic opportunity to residents of La Trinidad in teaching English.
Jincheon and La Trinidad are both agricultural towns known for their strawberries.
The town official added the similarity can help the sisterhood establish greater ventures for their growth and development. (Shena Golosino)
