BACOLOD CITY, Philippines – During his four-day visit to Guam this week, Governor of Negros Occidental Eugenio Jose Lacson is looking for ways to collaborate with the US territory.

Lacson was expected to attend the RIHGA Royal Laguna Guam Resort in Tamuning on Wednesday for the 124th Philippine Independence Day celebration of the Office of the Consulate General.

On the same day, he met with Guam Lieutenant Governor Joshua Franquez Tenorio to discuss the possibility of sisterhood relations between Negros Occidental and Guam.

In his request for the travel authorization, Lacson, who is the event’s guest of honor and speaker, said, “We will be featuring Negros Occidental’s local culture, renowned food, and promoting tourism and our investment potentials to the people of Guam and the Micronesian area.”

On Tuesday, the governor was greeted by Consul General Patrick John Hilado, himself a Negrense, at the Philippine Consulate General in Agana.

Provincial Administrator Rayfrando Diaz II, Executive Assistant IV Charina Magallanes Tan, and Provincial Tourism Officer Cheryl Decena were among those who accompanied Lacson.

He said they will meet with local government officials and members of the academe during their visit, which will last until June 9, to discuss possible future cooperation between Guam and Negros Occidental in agriculture, aquaculture, tourism, and scholarships.

Lacson and his entourage are scheduled to return to Negros Occidental on June 10th.
