Naga City Mayor Legacion attends 5th ASEAN Mayors’ Forum in Thailand


Naga City Mayor Nelson Legacion flew to Thailand to serve as a speaker at the 5th ASEAN Mayors’ Forum.

This is the first out of the country official business of Legacion after he assumed the office of the mayor last July 30.

“Just completed my presentation as SPEAKER in the 5th ASEAN MAYORS FORUM 2019 in the United Nations Conference Centre (UNCC) in Bangkok, Thailand. Have to relax a bit,” Legacion shared.

The said event was sponsored by United Nations Economic Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP).

Legacion discussed among others Naga’s progress on SDG localization and how the same help in accelerating progress.

“Being one of the Forum Speakers, his expenses including airfare and accommodation were all covered by the organizer,” the city government said.

Meanwhile, despite his commitment abroad, Mayor Legacion was still hands on in monitoring the weather situation in Naga City due to tropical depression Jenny.
