Guam/Olongapo City agreement signed

by Heather Hauswirth

A memorandum on strengthening the exchange and cooperation between Olongapo City in the Philippines and Guam was signed today.  Speaker Judi Won Pat and Olongapo City Mayor James "Bong" Gordon, Jr. formalized the agreement today, which is symbolic of the historic bond that exists between the people of Guam and the people of the Philippines.

Philippine Consul General Olivia Palala said, "Particularly with the military buildup based on their experience, by having the Sister City Agreement, hopefully this will pave the way for closer and even more special relations between Guam and that particular city where the naval base and American forces were stationed before."
