When Mayor Gordon, together with a contingent of city officials and businessmen, visited Guam last April, talks became rife with the possibility of a city sisterhood agreement. The visit was primarily about supplying workers for the Guam military build-up. The sisterhood relationship is now official and so is the possibility of employing workers from Olongapo City. As reported in the Pacific News Center.

Quote
Guam and the City of Olongapo now have a strategic and official relationship.  Guam Speaker Judith T. Won Pat, Ed.D. and Olongapo City Mayor James “Bong” Gordon, Jr. signed the Memorandum of Understanding establishing the relationship this morning at the Legislative Public Hearing Room.

“I am so excited about the future we have with Olongapo City,” Senator Eddie Baza Calvo said.  The senator authored Resolution No. 170-30, which allowed Guam to enter the sister-city relationship.  “Not only do we have so much in common with Olongapo City, but many of our people can trace their ancestry there and to the Zambales province.  This is a remarkable partnership, and one that will only strengthen our sisterhood with the Philippines.”
 
Our two communities will use the relationship to enhance Guam’s workforce, sustain economic development and promote trade.  The resolution stressed the Guam military buildup and how Guam and Olongapo can help each other to maximize opportunities presented by the buildup.
