NCC is set to Award the Most Competitive Cities and Municipalities in the 4th Annual Regional Competitiveness Summit

NCC shall convene again over 1,500 delegates composed of local chief executives, national government agencies, academe, private sector, and media for the 4th Annual Regional Competitiveness Summit on 14 July 2016, 10:00 a.m. at the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC).

The summit will highlight the results of the Cities and Municipalities Competitiveness Index 2016, which ranks over 1,300 local government units (LGUs) across the country based on their performance on three pillars: Economic Dynamism, Government Efficiency, and Infrastructure Awards will be conferred to LGUs in four categories: 3rd to 6th Class Municipalities, 1st to 2nd Class Municipalities, Component Cities, and Highly Urbanized Cities. An award for the Most Competitive Province and Most Improved City and Municipality will also be given this 2016.

The NCC hopes that this annual report will enable LGUs to evaluate their performance yearly and share best practices across the regions. This will also allow them to benchmark their performance against local and global standards and make transformative and well-informed decisions towards sustainable development.

Apart from the awarding ceremony, the CMCI website containing the data provided by the LGUs will also be launched. The data may be used by potential investors in deciding where to locate their businesses. More importantly, the data may be used as a tool for policy making, planning, governance, budget management, and investment promotion.

To manage reservations, we are highly encouraging early confirmation of attendance to the event. You may register online through this link: or you may email cmci [at] competitive [dot] org [dot] ph
