As a gesture of genuine Boholano hospitality, the BIT International College led by President Emeritus and Bohol Vice-Governor Atty. Dionisio D. Balite, PhD, and wife Dr. Lilia A. Balite, and the members of its Board of Trustees, hosted a welcome dinner for the delegation of the Province of Siquijor to the Central Visayas Regional Athletic Association (CVRAA). The Siquijor delegation that attended the welcome dinner was headed by Vice Governor Mei Ling M. Quezon, some provincial board members and Siquijor Schools Division Superintendent Dr. Ronald Gutay.

During the dinner, the visitors were entertained by songs and dances from the BIT IC Performing Arts.

One of the BIT IC schools is the Balite Institute of Technology in Siquijor, one of the links that bring the two island provinces of Bohol and Siquijor closer.

It is to be noted that a good number of students in BIT IC especially in the Maritime Department hail from Siquijor.
