Fur­ther­more, the Mu­nic­i­pal­ity of Guagua is plan­ning to es­tab­lish a 50-MW ca­pac­ity so­lar power plant and a bio-mass power plant. Re­gard­ing these plans, Tor­res and Kim will be in Korea on Fe­bru­ary 11 for more ac­tive re­cruit­ment of in­vest­ments.

In this visit, Tor­res will be able to see and learn fa­cil­i­ties re­lated to waste man­age­ment and biomass power plants. There are also sched­ules lined up to sign MOU with other in­vestors, busi­ness en­ter­prises and Korean LGUs.

In ad­di­tion to the re­cruit­ment of en­ergy-re­lated in­vest­ment, many other agenda will be han­dled in the trip.

In the sched­ule is the promised meet­ing with an in­vestor of fish feeds pro­duc­tion fa­cil­ity, which is one of the long-cher­ished busi­nesses of Guagua. This could be a safe fore­cast or po­ten­tially be an estab­lish­ment of a pro­duc­tion fa­cil­ity in the very near fu­ture.

Tor­res will also be meet­ing Korean LGU of­fi­cials for var­i­ous types of in­ter-LGU trans­ac­tions, such as hir­ing of sea­sonal work­ers, im­por­ta­tion of Korean daily ne­ces­si­ties and in­dus­trial prod­ucts, ex­por­ta­tion of lo­cal spe­cialty prod­ucts, and par­tic­i­pa­tion on a government lead­ing pro­ject. The Korean en­ter­prises al­ready showed in­ter­ests in par­tic­i­pat­ing in the planned projects and ready to in­vest after this trip.

Kim fur­ther an­nounced that he will put all his ef­forts to help trans­form the town to a re­new­able en­ergy- mart mu­nic­i­pal­ity, thus mak­ing it more eco­nom­i­cally-sound by cre­at­ing more sta­ble jobs for its cit­i­zens.

Com­ple­men­tar­ily, the Mu­nic­i­pal­ity of Guagua, to gain max­i­mum ben­e­fits will be giv­ing its full sup­port to build a health­ier, safer, and friend­lier en­vi­ron­ment in man­ag­ing and op­er­at­ing busi­nesses for more for­eign in­vestors and busi­ness ven­tures in the town.
