Mayor James “Bong” Gordon welcomed a delegation from Yona, Guam, USA headed by Mayor Jose “Pido” Terlaje on June 27, 2009 in Olongapo City.

The visit is in connection with the city’s intent to host next year’s meeting of the Association of Pacific Islands Local Governments (APILG).

This will give Olongapo City and Subic Bay the opportunity to showcase the place as an appropriate venue for the 3rd Annual Pacific Mayor’s Conference next year. The islands of Guam and Saipan previously hosted the 1st and 2nd conferences, respectively.

Mayor Terlaje toured the famous scenic spots, tourism and health facilities in Olongapo City and the Subic Bay Freeport Zone.

The Annual Pacific Mayors’ Conference is the regular membership meeting of the APILG. Its membership comprises of mayors, city officials and municipal council members from countries around the Pacific.

The said conference which is set in 2010, will generate additional income for the tourism industry in the city. Mayor Bong Gordon also hopes to invite more investors from other countries in the pacific region and the rest of the world.

“This international conference will be an effective initiative to attract tourists and foreign investors to Olongapo,” said Gordon. “I am confident that our city is suited to host this conference,” he also said.
