San Fernando Named Most Competitive City Anew [ Friday, 15th of July 2016 | 8 months ago ]
Out of 110 component cities who vied for this year’s Cities and Municipalities Competitiveness Index (CMCI) Awards, San Fernando ranked 2nd in the Overall Most Competitive City category.
All 1,389 competing Local Government Units, divided into four categories namely 3rd-6th Class Municipalities; 1st-2nd Class Municipalities; Component Cities; and Highly Urbanized Cities, were also measured into three convergent pillars including Economic Dynamism, Government Efficiency and Infrastructure.
Under the component city category, the city ranked 4th in the Economic Dynamism pillar and landed 8th and 6th in the Government Efficiency and Infrastructure pillar, respectively.
In an interview, Mayor Edwin ‘EdSa’ Santiago said these recognitions are results of the Local Government’s collective efforts in improving the quality of life for Fernandinos through transparent, effective governance.
“Our city prioritizes education and boosts employment by growing businesses because we want every Fernandino to reach his fullest potentials and be globally competitive as well,” Mayor EdSa added.
More than the recognition, Santiago furthered that he considers the awards as inspirations to further ‘aim for excellence’ and target a more progressive City of San Fernando.
In partnership with the Department of Trade and Industry, the NCC launched CMCI in 2013 with the aim to advance the country’s competitiveness through public-private sector collaboration.
