GRAND CELEBATION MEETING -- Baguio Mayor Mauricio Domogan and Vallejo, California Mayor Bob Sampayan together with officials from two cities met in Northern California last week to discuss the events, programs, and other activities to be held during the 25th anniversary of the sisterhood ties between two cities in the Summer Capital next year. -- Harley Palangchao

VALLEJO, California – The sister cities of Vallejo, California and Baguio have started planning for the 25th anniversary celebration of the twinning relations in the Summer Capital in 2018.

Baguio Mayor Mauricio Domogan led the city delegation in a meeting last week with Vallejo Mayor Bob Sampayan and Dinah Villanueva-Ryan, chair of the Vallejo-Baguio Sister Cities Committee to iron out the activities and programs during the silver anniversary.

Vallejo maintains sisterhood ties with other cities worldwide but the Vallejo-Baguio ties is the only recognized twinning by the United States-based Sister Cities International.

Among the initial events discussed were scheduled meetings between officials of two cities on how two cities will further benefit from cultural, social, educational exchanges and economical opportunities.

Vallejo’s best junior women’s basketball team and a mixture of taekwondo men’s and ladies athletes will also compete with select athletes from Baguio during the anniversary celebrations.

The Vallejo delegation is eyeing to be in Baguio by June or July next year.

Domogan said he would discuss the matter with the city council and other department heads and partners from the private sector on how the events and programs will go on before presenting it to the City of Vallejo for its comments.

It was not immediately known if the Vallejo Fil-Am Chamber of Commerce would be part of the delegation so that potential investments from the Solano County where Vallejo is located can be expanded to Baguio.

Retirement home facility, information and technology, and business process outsourcing are among the most viable business opportunities would-be investors might consider putting up in Baguio.

The city’s potential as a preferred retirement destination in the country is also being considered by some foreign cities where most Filipinos are based.

A number of Baguio Californians and other Filipino-Americans have informed members of the city delegation they would prefer to go back to the mountain resort after their retirement here.
