Zamboanga City and Puerto Princesa City in Palawan have forged a sisterhood city agreement.
Mayor Beng Climaco and Puerto Princesa Councilor Maria Nancy Socrates, representing Mayor Lucilo Bayron, led the signing ceremony held at City Hall on October 11.
The inking of a sisterhood pact with Puerto Princesa City took place a day before the feast of Nuestra Senora de la Virgen del Pilar.
“Under the agreement, both parties agree to support and encourage opportunities for mutually beneficial and practical exchanges in the fields of business, arts and culture, health, science , education, sports, tourism and local governance,” Zamboanga City said.
Zamboanga has also sisterhood pacts with the cities of Isabela, Davao, Trece Martires and some cities in China, among others.
