6th Regional Competitiveness Summit in Central Visayas

The Local Government Units (LGU) of the Central Visayas recently held the 6th Regional Competitiveness Summit at the Philippine International Convention Center last August 16, 2018. The Regional Competitiveness Summit is an event that encourages each city and municipality to be improved via a small competition that will be then recognized by the national terms.

6th Regional Competitiveness Summit

The National Competitiveness Council or NCC recognized the most competitive local government units in the Philippines and presented results of the Cities and Municipalities Competitiveness Index during the said event.

The Cities and Municipalities Competitiveness Index is measured in four pillars namely economic dynamism, government efficiency, infrastructure, and resiliency.

The economic dynamism is the activities that create a stable expansion of business and industries and higher job creation. Government efficiency is the quality and reliability of government services and support for effective and sustainable productive expansion while infrastructure is the physical building blocks of a locality that enable the provision of goods and services. Resiliency is the capacity of a locality to facilitate industries and raise productivity despite the shocks and stresses it encounters.
