“The significance of the sisterhood cannot be overstated. It will open up a world of opportunities for us to learn from one another,” Governor Ann said.

Governor Garcia commended Zamboanga Sibugay for its promising economic potential, underscoring the friendship and camaraderie she shares with Gov. Hofer. Their previous collaboration during the 16th and 17th Congresses, combined with their shared achievement as the first female governors in their respective provinces, solidified their close relationship.

The collaboration between Zamboanga Sibugay and Cebu Province goes beyond being a mere partnership; it is an opportunity to learn from each other, grow together, and succeed together. It shows how working together can help both provinces become more prosperous and developed. (KSA/RBI/PIA9-Zamboanga Sibugay)
