     Over 1,000 delegates from local government units, national government agencies, and private sector gathered at the PICC Reception Hall to witness the announcement of the Most Competitive Cities, Municipalities, and Provinces in the 3rd Regional Competitiveness Summit.

     This year, after two consecutive years of successful conduct of the Cities and Municipalities Competitiveness Index, the National Competitiveness Council, through the help of the Regional Competitiveness Committees, covered 142 Cities and 978 Municipalities out of a total of 1,634 localities, or a 68% national coverage versus only 17% coverage in the first year of the program, and 33% in the second year. Based on the framework of the index, these LGUs were ranked on three pillars – Economic Dynamism, Government Efficiency, and Infrastructure.
