For the third time in a row, Quezon City was hailed as the country’s Overall Most Competitive City in the highly urbanized category of the Cities and Municipalities Competitiveness Index 2018.
The award was given during the 6th Competitiveness Summit at the Philippine International Convention Center last week.
Aside from overall competitiveness, Quezon City was also recognized as the most competitive on Economic Dynamism and Infrastructure.
The recognition was earned by the combined efforts of all city government workers, City Administrator Aldrin Cuña said in accepting the award.
“This award is for all the residents of Quezon City. Your local government is working hard for you. I also share this award to all the employees of Quezon City. Their hard work and dedication is a testament of Quezon City’s dream in becoming the most competitive city in the country,” Cuña said.
The National Competitiveness Council ranks the competitiveness of cities and municipalities in terms of economic dynamism, government efficiency, infrastructure, and resiliency.
