MANILA, Philippines - A delegation led by the mayor of Haeundae-gu in Busan, South Korea will arrive on Thursday to forge a sisterhood agreement with Parañaque City.

“This agreement between our city and Busan would surely work both ways…This would pave the way for greater and broader cooperation not only between our cities, but hopefully for the two countries as well,” Mayor Edwin Olivarez said.

The sisterhood agreement is a result of over a year of coordination and consultations.

Haeundae-gu, a district east of Busan, is a favorite tourist destination because of its beaches, luxury shops and apartments.

Under the agreement, the two cities will pursue and expand cooperation on various areas, including economy, culture, sports, tourism and education.

“We intend to enter into more sisterhood agreements with other foreign cities to further promote and raise Parañaque City’s image on the world stage,” Olivarez said.
