Catbalogan to host international meeting of cities and LGUs

And it’s official, Catbalogan City will host the First Session of UCLG ASPAC Executive Bureau 2017!

Catbalogan City is a member of the UCLG ASPAC or United Cities and Local Governments Asia Pacific headquartered in Jakarta, Indonesia, which is one of the Regional Sections of UCLG, an amalgamation of International Union of Local Authorities, United Towns Organization (UTO), and World Association of the Major Metropolises (METROPOLIS) and was established on 1 January 2004 with its headquarters in Barcelona, Spain.

This important activity is a first for Catbalogan City and even in the whole island of Samar to host an international gathering of Mayors and Governors from cities and provinces across Asia Pacific, which is through City Mayor Stephany Uy-Tan’s steadfast leadership coupled with strong networking and partnership-building.

An estimated of 80 local chief executives are expected to attend the Executive Bureau meeting while an estimated of nearly 300 participants are expected to attend the Asia Pacific conference, which are several of the activities for the 3-day international event.
