The most competitive highly urbanized city award goes to QC

In the 2021 Cities and Municipalities Competitiveness Index, the Quezon City administration beat out Manila and Pasay to win the title of Most Competitive Highly Urbanized City (HUC) (CMCI).

Along with Pasay City, QC was named by the CMCI Summit as the second-most competitive city in terms of infrastructure, government effectiveness, and economic dynamism, and third in terms of resilience, behind Muntinlupa and Cagayan de Oro.

According to the four competitiveness pillars of Economic Dynamism, Government Efficiency, Infrastructure, and Resiliency, cities and municipalities are ranked annually in the CMCI.

Innovation will be added as the fifth pillar for the 2022 awards.

Local government entities are able to evaluate their economic strengths and shortcomings, make improvements, and make local-level comparisons with other cities and municipalities thanks to the assessment.

The National Competitiveness Council creates the CMCI in collaboration with the Department of Trade and Industry, the United States Agency for International Development, and the Regional Competitiveness Committees.

The honor, according to QC Mayor Joy Belmonte, is evidence that the city’s economic rebooting strategy is effective, she said in a statement on Friday.

“Despite the pandemic, when evaluated using the four pillars, our initiatives stood out. All company owners in Quezon City will benefit from this, according to Belmonte.

Despite the hard global economic crisis, she continued, the acknowledgment shows that the city’s combined efforts are producing beneficial outcomes and that the policies and initiatives implemented have a good impact on growth and sustainability.

Among the initiatives of the city, administration are the “Kalingang QC” and “Pangkabuhayang QC” livelihood training and capital support programs, which provide wage relief for part-time workers as well as the automation and digitization of transactions involving permits and tax payments.

In order to improve the lives of our residents, Belmonte remarked, “We are steadfastly devoted to our goal of developing a flourishing, sustainable, and competitive economic environment in our city.”
