GS modern X-ray baggage scanner is now in place at the Laoag International Airport courtesy of the
Peoples Republic of China. In a simple ribbon cutting ceremony held at the Laoag Airport on
Wednesday, Zhiao Quiaoliang, head of the Chinese Consulate Center in Laoag City, officially turned
over the machine to Governor Ma. Imelda Josefa Marcos, representing the province of Ilocos Norte.
Pegged at an estimated amount of PHP1million, the GS X-ray baggage scanner is a great help for the
Laoag airport to intensify its security measures while in the process of upgrading its facilities
to cater to its growing visitors.
Marcos said the Chinese government have always been helpful to Ilocos Norte, hence, she expressed
her gratitude for its continuing support.
The governor hopes that with the on-going upgrading of facilities at the airport, more and more
tourists and businessmen will be encouraged to visit the province.
Just recently, the Chinese government also distributed its high-yielding and drought resistant
super hybrid rice to Ilocano farmers.
