Here's the Report on the Hawai‘i County Economic Development Mission to Ormoc City, Republic of the Philippines:
- Sister City reciprocal visit and official signing ceremony with Ormoc City officials.
- Economic development fact finding tour of Leyte’s extensive geothermal energy generation facilities.
- Economic development fact finding tour of Visayas State University agriculture programs and area farms to observe how the industry advances regional food sustainability.
