Bing seeking envoy's help
on direct flights from Korea

Bacolod Rep. Evelio “Bing” Leonardia is seeking the assistance of the South Korean ambassador to the Philippines, Lee Hyuk, to ensure that direct flights from that country will be launched as scheduled in December.

Leonardia this week met with Hyuk, who invited him to the Korean National Day celebration at the latter's residence in Forbes Park, Makati, a press release from the solon's office said.

While the private sector is working on the scheduled flights, the assistance of the Korean embassy will help us expedite things, Leonardia said.

In their meeting, Leonardia told Hyuk that Bacolod is preparing for 17 direct flights that are being planned to start January next year.

He also told the envoy that Bacolod and the SoKor city of Andong has a sisterhood pact, forged when he and a delegation of MassKara dancers visited that city in 2006. The MassKara dancers performed at Andong's own Mask Festival.

Leonardia also informed Hyuk there is an active Korean student population in Bacolod, the press release added.*
