Mayor Beng Climaco yesterday welcomed elective and appointive officials from Socorro, Oriental Mindoro as they arrived for a five-day educational tour.

The 44-strong contingent led by Mayor Rolando Arreola and composed of Sangguniang Bayan members, barangay chairpersons and department heads is in Zamboanga to learn of the city government’s best practices as well as tour the city.

The Socorro delegation toured various city offices yesterday. The delegation will also visit city landmarks and other places of interest.

The visiting officials are scheduled to fly back on September 19.

Local government units (LGUs) are encouraged to visit and forge partnerships with their counterparts. Educational tours or lakbay-aral offers participating LGUs an opportunity to exchange ideas and for visiting delegates to observe firsthand the best practices of the host LGU. — Claudine Uniana
