According to a report from Sun.Star, some Koreans namely, Simon Bake and Phillip Park paid a visit to Misamis Oriental Governor Yevgeny “Bambi” Emano on February 22, Wednesday.
These businessmen are willing to invest in the flourishing silk industry and other government sectors, such as health, infrastructure, and agriculture, said Nicole Managbanag, Provincial Information Officer.
She said that they were instructed to make an unlimited ‘wish list’ as long as it is intended for the development of hospitals, assisting farmers and fisherfolks and to infrastructure developments.

The province with the support from the Department of Trade and Industry will increase the silk-weaving communities in other municipalities.
