OZAMIZ, Misamis Occidental (PIA)–The Department of Trade and Industry-Misamis Occidental (DTI-MisOcc) reinforced its support for local government units (LGUs) to improve their competitiveness in government efficiency, economic dynamism, infrastructure, resiliency, and innovation during the 2023 Cities and Municipalities Competitiveness Index (CMCI) Meeting and Data Consolidation Forum at Royal Garden, Ozamiz City, April 12, 2023.

In coordination with the City Government of Ozamiz, DTI-MisOcc held the 2023 CMCI Meeting and Data Consolidation Forum at Royal Garden, Ozamiz City, which aimed to improve LGU rankings in all five pillars to have a higher overall competitiveness score.

Luz Galda, DTI-MisOcc Provincial Director, said that the competitiveness score is a vital component in attracting investors. Cities and municipalities are ranked in their competitiveness based on an overall competitiveness score. 

“To all of you here, we need your cooperation so that the ranking of your respective cities and municipalities will be more attractive to investors in order to generate more jobs, which will redound to economic growth. Let us remember that rising competitiveness is rising prosperity,” Galda said.

Meanwhile, CMCI Enumerator Engr. Esmael Larubis from La Salle University explained in detail how the local government units can have a perfect score in each pillar.

He discussed the 2023 CMCI Survey Orientation, CMCI Overview, CMCI’s Five Pillars/Indicators, 2023 Local Data Capture Sheet (LDCS), the Work Plan, and Strategies.

“Ang pinaka goal aning CMCI for our province is actually to put our province in the spotlight for the investor, and if we put our province in the spotlight for the investor, we will be actually lifting everyone from poverty, especially those who don’t have any job, and somehow we can help them so that they by themselves can have a better opportunity for living,” Larubis said.

The CMCI survey in 2023 is an annual ranking of the Philippine cities and municipalities developed by the National Competitiveness Council (NCC) with the assistance of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and designed to capture four key competitiveness pillars, namely, government efficiency, economic dynamism, infrastructure, resiliency, and innovation.

Further, it is implemented by the DTI Competitiveness Bureau (DTI-BC), which annually ranks local government units (LGUs) at the provincial, city, and municipal levels based on the data gathered and processed to determine their competitiveness ranking. (SMRN/PIA-10/Misamis Occidental)
