The Cities and Municipalities Competitiveness Index is an annual ranking of Philippine cities and municipalities developed by the National Competitiveness Council (NCC) through the Regional Competitiveness Committees (RCCs) with the assistance of the United States Agency for International Development.

More than 1,000 delegates from local government units, national government agencies, and the private sector gathered at the PICC Reception Hall on July 14, 2016 to witness the announcement of the winners.

The LGUs were ranked based on the three pillars – Economic Dynamism, Government Efficiency and Infrastructure.

The program aims to improve the country’s overall competitiveness through collaborative efforts between and among national and local government units as well as the public and private sectors.
