Tagum is PH’s 3rd Overall Most Competitive Component City

Tagum City – Headstrong in withstanding adversities, Tagum City once again earned the Top 3 spot for the Overall Most Competitive Component City in the Philippines during the virtual awarding of the 9th Regional Competitiveness Summit by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) held last December 14, 2021.

In its three-year winning streak, the City Government of Tagum secured three wins out of the four pillars of the Cities and Municipalities Competitiveness Index (CMCI), which includes getting the Top 1 spot in the Most Government Efficient LGU in the whole Philippines under the Component City category.

The said award is granted to LGUs that display excellent and reliable government services and support for sustainable productive expansion, able to apply moderate and reasonable taxation, capable to regulate proactively, and generally not corrupt.

Displaying greatness amidst uncertainties and threats, the City also ranked Top 2 in the Most Competitive: Resiliency pillar which is known to be granted to a locality that has the capacity to build systems that can adapt to changes and disturbances such as hazard risk identification mechanisms, resilience-related infrastructure, resilience-related mechanisms, and budgeting for disaster risk reduction.

Tagum City also garnered the Top 4 Most Competitive LGU in the Infrastructure pillar, which applauds the LGU’s overall aggressive and mass-oriented infrastructure development programs that improved the city’s physical assets and the living conditions of its constituents.

Through the shared leadership of Mayor Allan Rellon and Vice Mayor Eva Lorraine Estabillo, Tagum City proved once again its ability to be at par with equally competitive cities and municipalities. Geneva Pangandoyon/CIO Tagum
