Polomolok: 2016 8th Most Competitive Municipality in PH


POLOMOLOK, South Cotabato –  For 3 consecutive years, Polomolok has been in the top 10 most competitive municipalities in the Philippines. It is an honor for us to be on those ranks and I personally think that we deserve that.

The cities and municipalities rankings are based on the 3 pillars as mandated by the National Competitiveness Council of the Philippines: Economic Dynamism, Government Efficiency and Infrastructure. Furthermore, scores are determined by the values and the completeness of the data being submitted. Therefore, the higher the score of a city or a municipality, the more competitive it is.

The competitiveness are categorized into five (5):

Without further ado, I will focus more on the 1st to 2nd Class Municipalities category. See all of the categories here.

“First Class Municipalities are municipalities which have an average income of PhP 55,000,000 or more during the previous four (4) calendar years while Second Class Municipalities have a latest income of PhP 45,000,000 to PhP 54,999,999 during the previous four (4) calendar years.”
