Maryland trade mission to visit Olongapo City

By. Franco Regala – Manila Bulletin

A delegation from Prince George’s County of Maryland composed of county executives and business leaders, is scheduled to visit the Philippines on October 4 to 9 as part of their Asian Trade Mission.

The visit will include Olongapo City, according to delegation head County Executive jack B. Johnson.

“The main purpose of this trip is to bring together stakeholders from business and the government in order to enhance the mutual international commercial relations between the Philippines and Prince Gorge’s County,” Johnson said in a letter to Mayor James “Bong” Gordon Jr.

“We are looking forward to discussing economic and cultural exports and to introduce our international business program to you as well as identify and develop opportunities for companies from the Philippines and the Prince George’s County to do business in prospective markets,” Johnson added.

The delegation is also slated to visit Laguna because of its potential as a housing development area. Senator Richard Gordon will be escorting the delegates throughout their visit in the Philippines.

Prince George’s County is the second wealthiest county in Maryland and is the wealthiest county of foreign-born Americans in the Unites States. The county aims to create a comprehensive business strategy centered in global markets.

In view of the Maryland visit and the East and Southeast Asia (ESEA) Conference in Olongapo City in November, the whole city is in high gear for the preparations and maintenance of the city’s infrastructures and other facilities.

“Nananawagan ako sa lahat; we have to do our part para maging malinis at maayos ang buong lungsod at hindi lamang pagdating ng mga delegates kundi sana ay mapanatili pa natin ito. Kailangan, hindi dahilan ang mga okasyong tulad nito upang panahon lamang para kumilos, dapat araw-araw,” said Mayor Gordon.

“This is an important mission. Our businessmen must meet with the delegates para makakuha tayo ng investments at mapalago ang economy ng lungsod,” Mayor Gordon added.
