DTI-3 Recognizes Baliwag as the Nation’s 9th Most Competitive Municipality

No comments

 

The Municipality of Baliwag was conferred the recognition by the Department of Trade and Industry Region 3 as the 9th Most Competitive Municipality, Rank 2 in Infrastructure Indicator and Rank 10 in Government Efficiency Pillar based from the Cities/Municipalities Competitiveness Index at The Orchid Gardens, City of San Fernando on December 7, 2018.

Present during the ceremony to receive the awards on behalf of the LGU were Municipal Administrator Enrique V. Tagle together with LEIPO Karen Joy R. Rivera, MDDRMO Head Alvin Lee Asuro, NutriPop Head Brenda Bernardo and Project Officer  Clarinda Guanzon. The said event was led by DTI Provincial Director Judith P. Angeles and Assistant Provincial Director Zorina Aldana. The keynote speaker for the awarding ceremony was Mr. Guillermo Luz, former co-chair of the National Competitiveness Council.

 

 

 

The CMCI is an annual ranking of the country’s cities and municipalities developed by the NCC  through the Regional Competitiveness Committees (RCCs) with the support of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

 

The Cities and Municipalities are ranked on their competitiveness based on their overall score which is the sum of all the scores of the four main indicators. These four main pillars are the Economic Dynamism, Government Efficiency, Infrastructure and Resiliency which pool data from other sub-indicators. Based from the index, the higher the score of the city or municipality the more competitive it is.

It can be recalled that Baliwag was awarded the 3rd Most Improved Municipality in 2017 for its rank jumped from 960th in 2016 to 47th the next year.  For 2018, the business-friendly town ranks 9th among the more than 1400 Municipalities in the Philippines making it the Most Competitive First Class Municipality in Bulacan and also in the entire Central Luzon.

“In behalf of LGU Baliwag and  Mayor Ferdie V. Estrella, we wish to thank all the  diligent men and women who always give serbisyong may malasakit and made this great milestone be achieved. Our rankings for the past two years under this administration truly serve an inspiration for everyone of us to continue implement more projects and programs to give more than what Baliwagenyos deserve,”  said by MA Tagle.

“Next in pipeline is the opening of the Baliwag Business Center which is a co-location of all departments of the municipality having business related transactions, utility companies and also national agencies. It will serve as a Business One-Stop Shop providing streamlined processes in getting clearances and permits,” he added.

Last August 16 during the 6th Regional Competitiveness Summit at the PICC, Mayor FVE received the award of Baliwag being the top 2 in Infrastructure for 1st and 2nd Class Municipalities Category based also on the CMCI given by the DTI – Competitiveness and Ease of Doing Business Group.

The Municipality of Baliwag ranked 13th out of 1363 entries of municipalities in the latest Cities and Municipalities Competitiveness Index 2018, while also ranking the 9th most competitive economy  among the 1st and 2nd class Municipalities.

In Central Luzon, it also bagged the Most Competitive First Class Municipality title and also hailed as the Most Competitive Municipality in Bulacan.

It was followed by Marilao (49th), Guiguinto (229th), and Santa Maria (284th)—all on the nation’s top 300 list.

Furthermore, Baliwag topped in Infrastructure and Government Efficiency pillars placing 2nd  and ranked 10th respectively. The index looked at 4 pillars, namely: economic dynamism, government efficiency, infrastructure and resiliency.

Economic dynamism measures the economic activity and productivity of the LGU which include the size, growth and structure of local economy (business), employment, cost of living and doing business, financial institutions and engagement of business sectors.

In the government efficiency pillar,  LGUs are looked up as anti- corrupt entity and able to enforce contracts which is for effective and sustainable expansion. Indicators include capacity of health services and schools, security, business registration efficiency, compliance to BPLS standards, investment promotions, tax collection’s ratio to revenues, LGU recognitions and social protection.

The third pillar is infrastructure represents the idea that making productivity sustainable over time. Data involved includes existing road network, distance from local ports, availability of basic utilities, internet connection, etc.

The fourth and newest pillar is resiliency.   It measures the capability of the LGU to sustain competitiveness.   It is ensuring a competitive environment to make businesses sustain their profits, create jobs and increase the productivity of its people.

The ranking this year implies that Baliwag had a 360 degrees turn around on its rankings for the last three years based on the CMCI. It can be recalled that in 2016, Baliwag ranked 960th among all municipalities, 47th in 2017 and 13th this year.

Baliwag’s soaring rankings are undeniably credited with the series of reforms and measures instituted under the leadership of Mayor Ferdinand V. Estrella, realizing the vision of Baliwag becoming the most competitive municipality in the country.
