    Last year, Quezon City also topped the list. The ranking is based on economic dynamism, government efficiency, infrastructure, and resiliency.

    Recognition plaques were awarded during the 5th Regional Competitiveness Summit and Awards held last August 16 at the Philippine International Convention Center in Pasay. Besides the 1st place award for overall competitiveness, Quezon City also received the 1st place award for infrastructure.

    Manila City, which was the overall most competitive city back in 2015, ranked 1st on government efficiency this year. Pasay City placed 1st among highly urbanized cities on the economic dynamism category, while Davao City topped the rankings on resiliency.

    Manila (2nd), Davao (3rd), Makati (4th), and Pasay (5th) followed Quezon City in the rankings of highly urbanized cities based on overall competitiveness.

    Component cities, municipalities, 1st to 2nd class municipalities, and 3rd to 6th class municipalities were also ranked based on the same criteria as the highly urbanized cities. Provinces meanwhile were ranked based on population and income weighted average of the overall scores of cities and municipalities under a province.

    Rizal, South Cotabato, and Cavite are the most competitive provinces in the country. /IMAGE National Competitiveness Council website
