CSF Placed 5th In Most Competitive Cities [ Tuesday, 8th of January 2019 | 2 months ago ]
Once again, the City Government of San Fernando proved its excellent performance in providing services to Fernandinos as it landed ‘5th place’ in the ‘Overall Competitiveness’ in the country under the component city category.
The awarding ceremony was held during the ‘2018 Cities and Municipalities Competitiveness Index (CMCI) Central Luzon Regional Awarding Ceremonies’ on December 7, 2018 at The Orchid Gardens, CSFP which was initiated by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) and Regional Development Council (RDC-3) Special Committee on Competitiveness.
“Technically, this is the first awarding in the region, kung saan we will recognize the competitiveness of the Top 10 LGUs (Local Government Units) in the region, ang national awarding was last August at the PICC (Philippine International Convention Center), but since only the Top 3 were only invited there, kaya minabuti naming magkaroon ng regional award para yung Top 10 in the region ay ma-recognize naman,” said DTI Region 3 Director Judith Angeles in an interview.
These Top 10 LGUs were ranked and measured based on the Cities and Municipalities Competitiveness Index four pillars including ‘Economic Dynamism’ wherein LGUs’ were tested based on their ‘number of businesses, banks, and registered vehicles, while the ‘Government Efficiency’ shows the LGUs’ ‘competence in rendering social services’. ‘Infrastructure’ pillar measures the ‘good conditions of the road, buildings, and bridges’ which are the important factors to consider in ‘making a business in their respective areas’, and the last pillar is the ‘Resiliency’ which shows the LGUs disaster preparedness.
Under the component city category, the city ranked 8th for Economic Dynamism and 5th for Infrastructure.
For the Overall Competitiveness, the City of San Fernando was the only component city in Central Luzon who landed 5th place in the national ranks.
For his part, Mayor Edwin ‘EdSa’ Santiago expressed his gratitude to the RDC-3 Special Committee on Competitiveness for recognizing the city’s actions towards economic and sustainable growth.
He furthered that this recognition is the result of the ‘hard work and unity’ of the Fernandinos in maintaining good governance and transparency in the city.
“Asahan niyong mas pag-iigihan pa namin ang pagbibigay ng dekalidad na serbisyo sa mamamayan, dahil naniniwala ang Syudad na isa sa mga susi upang magtagumpay ang isang pamayanan, ay ang pagkakaroon ng masayang mamamayan dahil sila ay nabibigyan ng tamang pagkalinga,” he said.
