Occidental Mindoro Josephine Ramirez-Sato has held a meeting with Philippine Sports Commission head William Ramirez to discuss the Palarong Pambansa 2020.

The Province of Occidental Mindoro has been chosen to host the annual national sports competition.

“Very fruitful meeting with PSC Chair William Ramirez earlier today. He is in full support for the Palarong Pambansa 2020 in Oksi…,” the solon said.

Sato also revealed that Ramirez has “committed budgetary support to improve and upgrade existing sports facilities in San Jose and also deploy PSC coaches, trainers and consultants to improve the skills of OkSi Palaro athletes.”

She also said that the PSC chair expressed his support the establishment of a sports academy and training center in Occidental Mindoro.

“Suportado din po niya ang aking bill para magtatag ng Occidental Mindoro Sports Academy at Training Center sa San Jose. Bilang Ina ng OkSi, layon nating palakasin at pagbutihin pa ang sports development sa OkSi para sa ating mga atleta,” Sato said.

Sato also met earlier with Department of Education Secretary Leonor Briones to discuss the hosting.

She was joined then by Governor Eduard Gadiano and Vice Governor Peter Alfaro.
