Benguet pushes sisterhood with China province

LA TRINIDAD, Benguet (18 September) -- Governor Borromeo Melchor expressed optimism that the proposed sisterhood relationship to be forged with a province in China would open opportunities for the province.

But foremost, Melchor said that the Sangguniang Panlalawigan should still craft a resolution as basis in signifying the province's intent of establishing a sisterhood relationship particularly with Guandong province.

Provincial officials led by Melchor together with the Cantonese Association in Manila visited China recently through the invitation of the officialdom of Guandong for the proposed sisterhood relationship.

Melchor said this would pave the way in addressing the problem on importation confronting the province's vegetable industry. He added that instead of lobbying in Manila, it is a matter of doing the proper approach and exercise the province's diplomatic relations with China.

Melchor admitted that the government is partly to be blamed on the underground activities being done by unscrupulous people allowing the entry of illegally imported vegetables.

The province could also make a compromise with Guandong that they can only supply vegetables when local producers could not meet the demand in the local and national markets, Melchor said. He added that their technology like improved packaging system and farming techniques such as organic farming could also be availed of.

As China will host the 2008 Olympics, English tutors are needed which according to Melchor is an opportunity for employment of graduates and those already in the profession. (PIA) [top]
