With everything coming back to normal after the pandemic, Consul General of China in Cebu Zhang Zhen has recommended for Iloilo City and its sister cities in China to have more people exchanges and cooperations.

โ€œWe all know that during the pandemic years the exchange remains at a very low level. But now after pandemic, everything came back to normal, so I will suggest that both sides make good use of the Sister City relationship and to explore more opportunities and possibilities to have tangible win-win cooperation which can bring more benefits to both sides,โ€ said Zhang.

The Chinese official, who visited the city in line with the Chinese New Year celebration, said Iloiloโ€™s sister cities are very strong and famous in China and have their own features and strengths.

These are Qingdao wherein Iloilo has established sister city ties in 2000; Guangzhou City in Fujian province in 2020; and Wuhan in Hubei province in 2021.

โ€œThese big cities have vigorous potentials, and they have many, many strong sectors. So, I think the potential for the bilateral cooperation for Iloilo city and these cities are huge and great,โ€ she added.

She further cited, for instance, that โ€œWuhan is a very big city in the middle of China just like Iloilo, in the middle of the Philippines, the heart of the Philippines. Wuhan is also heart of China.โ€

Meanwhile, with Iloilo City as a center of education, Zhang recommended more exchanges and cooperation in education

โ€œIn China, there are a lot of good colleges and universities, including higher education; also the vocational education is very strong. Educational institutions can establish a kind of partnership, they can exchange students and teachers even ,have more common projects so both sides can benefit,โ€ she said.

Other potential areas for partnership, she noted, are agriculture, green energy, sustainable development, urbanization, and tourism.

โ€œIf the visa policy to China can ease, then Iโ€™m sure the two sides, the tourism bureaus and travel agencies can have better cooperation,โ€ she said. (Iloilo City PIO)
