Pasil and Sagada now sister towns
by Peter A. Balocnit / PIA

PASIL, Kalinga – The municipalities of Pasil in Kalinga and Sagada of Mountain Province forged sisterhood ties aimed to foster mutual understanding, promote development, and preserve peace and unity.

Pasil Mayor James Edduba and Sagada Mayor Eduardo Latawan Jr. signed the memorandum of understanding binding the two LGUs in promoting development during the former’s 48th founding anniversary on June 17 and 18.

In the MOU, both LGUs agree to support each other on eco-tourism promotion, cultural preservation, and protection of the environment particularly along their common boundaries that serve as watersheds of the Pasil and Chico rivers.

Edduba said the established relationship is a bigger picture of the pochon or peace pact among Kalinga and some Mountain Province sub-tribes, though this type is more of a shared governance and replication of good practices.

During the opening program, the lonok was administered with the exchange of peace tokens or allasiw between the two local executives, followed by a grand celebration. 

A tree planting at the Pasil Mini Hatchery was held after the MOU signing where representatives planted trees of life symbolizing the life of their friendship. “As the trees are growing and being nurtured, so is our friendship which will grow and mature in the future,” Edduba said.

Meanwhile, the mayor thanked the Department of Education for their support and the doctors, dentists, and health and military personnel for the successful conduct of a medical-dental mission that benefited 220 medical and 163 dental patients; bloodletting, circumcision of 33 children, and 41 individuals who had haircut during the founding anniversary.
