I. INTRODUCTION The province of Cavite abounds with historic sites and landmarks; museums, world class golf courses, outstanding gardens and facilities for leisure. It is the birthplace of a number of Filipino heroes and it has an interesting range of sites associated with the Philippine Revolution. Found in the province is the residence of the first president of the Republic, Gen Emilio Aguinaldo, which was also the site of the proclamation of independence from Spain on June 12, 1898.

Cavite teems with natural resources and unique landscapes. It is home to Tagaytay City, which is situated 2,500 feet above sea level and a popular summer and holiday destination. The highway drive offers a breathtaking sight of the world-famous Taal Volcano and Lake which is a crater within an island within a lake. Vegetation dot the ridges of Tagaytay with a wide range of accommodation establishments and restaurants for tourists to savor the pleasures of leisure and relaxation with a magnificent view of Taal Lake and Volcano.


Cavite got its name from the Filipino word Kawit, which means hook, owing to the hook-shaped mass of land recorded on the old Spanish maps. The land formerly known as Tangway was the site of a Spanish colonial fort on which the city of Cavite rose. Archeological evidence in coastal areas shows prehistoric settlements. According to historical records, the earliest settlers of Cavite came from Borneo. In the 1600s, encomiendas or Spanish royal land grants were given in the towns of Cavite, Ternate and Maragondon. Jesuit priests brought in settlers from Moluccas. These people known as Mardicas, settled in the above-named sites.

Other settlements grew during the Spanish era and by the turn of century, Cavite’s progressive towns were already trading with Manila and with one another. Traditional industries began to thrive as Manila’s commerce grew.

In 1872, Filipinos launched their rebellion against Spain. Three Filipino secular priests, Jose Burgos, Mariano Gomez and Jacinto Zamora, were implicated in the Cavite mutiny when 200 Filipinos struck the Spanish garrisons. On August 25, 1896, when the spark of a revolution against Spain broke out, Cavite became a bloody theater of the Philippine Revolution.

Led by Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo, Cavitenos made lighting raids on Spanish settlements and soon liberated the entire province of Cavite. Aguinaldo commanded the Revolution to its successful end, which preraged the proclamation of the first Republic in Asia, the Republic of the Philippines on June 12, 1898 in Kawit, Cavite.

1. CAVITE CITY: International Transport Hub of the Future

There are 2,347 duly licensed industries and/or establishments in the City based on 1998 data. Business establishments are mostly engaged in trading, sari-sari/general merchandise, real estate leasing and services. Two large-scale manufacturers of rattan and wooden furniture for export and for the local market are fond in the city. There are two private shipyards in the area in addition to the Philippine naval Base and Sangley Point, which are engaged in shipbuilding, repair, maintenance and other kinds of industrial specialization. Other industries include construction supplies and garments manufacturing and a number of cottage industries such as embroidery and other handicrafts. Fishing is one of the primary sources of livelihood as the city is almost completely surrounded by water. Eleven hotels, seventeen restaurants and several night clubs and disco houses likewise contribute to the development of the city.
The city government’s development program includes the restoration of significant tourist attractions and the preservation of historical sites projecting the nation’s struggle for democracy and independence. Priority projects cover the rehabilitation of damaged streets, concreting of roads and the repair of seawalls and breakwaters. Apart from these, the city’s development goals include the generation of employment opportunities, rapid economic growth, better housing facilities, as a center for better education, trade, commerce and tourism. Proposed major projects include the reclamation and site development of a Light Industrial Park in the northwest, Industrial Port Terminal and the National Shipyard in the southeast necessary to meet the land space requirements of commercial, industrial and housing projects of the City along with the construction of the Cavite City-Binakayan Viaduct in the south and the Ciudad Nuevo in the southwest. The entry of private capital for basic and modern services is encouraged to support Cavite City’s growing population. An integrated port development study is being drawn to set up an International Container Port in the northeast

2. BACOOR: The Gateway to Metro Manila

Trade and commerce and the service sectors are the primary income earners of the town. Commercial activity lies mainly along the General Emilio Aguinaldo and Tirona Highways ranging from wholesale to retail establishments, restaurants and eateries, hardware and construction supplies and other service-related industries spearheaded by the large SM Bacoor Shopping Mall. The entrance area from Coastal Road to Aguinaldo Highway and the area surrounding the Zapote Public Market are other commercial centers. Crops, the productive area of which has dwindled to only 100 hectares; fishponds which likewise decreased to almost half of the original 760 hectares; and salt production, fishing, Oyster and mussel culture which are now being threatened to near extinction because of pollution and overpopulation, are the other sources of income of the residents. The sudden shift of Bacoor from an agri-based economy to a residential/commercial urban center with all its attendant problems poses a challenge to public administrators.
Land use developments in Bacoor include a proposed industrial village in Barangay Niog which will include light cottage industries with supporting residential and commercial facilities. A vast track of land in Molino area, on the other hand, is envisioned to host residential, institutional and commercial facilities. Dubbed as the New Bacoor, the land use plan in Molino seeks to utilize the area not only as a dormitory for individuals who work in Manila but also for people who have migrated to Bacoor in search of economic advancement. The proposed urban waterfront development, which will cover a portion of the reclaimed area of Manila Bay, will be the front door of the municipality linking Bacoor to Boulevard 2000. The area will include an integrated mix of residential, business, commercical, tourism and recreational facilities. The proposed expansion of the LRT (Light Rail Transit) to wind up in Bacoor, designed to ease to flow of traffic in major thoroughfares, is another major development.

3. KAWIT: The Birthplace of Philippine Independence

Industrial activities such as glass works and food processing are generally small-scale. Leather processing and garments manufacturing were recently introduced to the municipality. A summary of trade and business establishments as of 1992 are as follows: Retail trade 64.84% Service 12.70% Wholesale Trade 10.57% Real Estate 6.40% Manufacturing 3.76% Banking & Finance 1.73%
Kawit, for the next 10 years, is envisioned to have a bustling commercial district with first class recreational facilities located at the 130-hectare Binakayan reclamation area. It is also foreseen to host educational institutions providing tertiary education, manpower training and other technical courses. Barangay Toclong is being eyed for commercial development where department stores, banks, supermarkets, and movie theaters are to be established. Kawit also has an extensive potential for fish pen development. The municipality of Kawit intends to expand its road network and establish growth centers around the area of Binakayan to diffuse the high population density and the pressure produced by the over-concentration of economic activities in the said barangay. The agricultural sector is also a potential growth area with 44% of the municipality’s agriculturally viable land to be tapped and made productive.

4. NOVELETA: On Rapid Urbanization

A big enterprise, which spurs the output in the service sector, is the presence of the Noveca Industries in Brgy. Sta. Rosa. Manufacturing is limited to light and medium industries such as sash factories and several garment factories. Other activities are the manufacture of furniture, iron gates and grills, and hollowblocks. The construction boom, on the other hand, is due to the mushrooming of residential subdivisions in the area. A number of commercial establishments are located along Noveleta’s major thoroughfares. Small retail stores, service firms, and some medium scale enterprises, dot the municipality. There are specialty stores engaged in the trade of construction supplies and materials, auto parts, furniture and home decors, sportswear as well as fresh food items like meat, fruits and vegetables. Also based in the town are three pharmacies, eleven bakeries and two gasoline stations. The tourism industry in Noveleta relies mainly on its coastline with the Manila Bay bordering its western portion. Restaurants, cottages, conference rooms, and social halls/pavilions are situated along the beaches of Brgys. San Rafael III and IV.
The agricultural activities in the municipality are gradually decreasing due to urbanization. The current trend in Noveleta is in conversion of land from agriculture use to urban settlements. This may be attributed to its growing population and its proximity to Metro Manila and the Cavite Economic Processing Zone in Rosario, a 10-minurte drive from Noveleta. Majority of Noveleta’s population is involved in commercial and industrial activities. Historical and tourism landmarks include the Noveleta Tribunal, Calero Bridge, Villamar Beach Resort I, Villamar Beach Resort II, Lido Beach Resort, TIP Beach Resort and the Magdiwang Cockpit Area. The strips of beaches in Noveleta combined with the town’s proximity to major urban centers make it an ideal tourist attraction.

5. ROSARIO: An agricultural-commercial-industrial Center

The Philippine National Oil Corporation (PNOC), Petrochemical, Vinyl Consortium and the Cavite Export Processing Zone (CEPZ) converted prime agricultural lands to industrial use. The biggest industrial zone in the province of Cavite is the CEPZ which boasts of 210 export manufacturing companies most of which are owned by Japanese, Korean and Filipino investors. The free port zone employs at least 50,000 Caviteños.
Rosario is envisioned to shift from a rural and agricultural-based economy to a balanced agricultural-commercial-industrial setup. Rosario aims to be self-sufficient in fishery, livestock and agricultural products with the help of additional infrastructure support like food processing facilities, a fish market, cold storage and a fish port. The Pandawan fish port in Barangay Sapa is the major fishing port of the province. Rosario is anticipated to increase its residential, industrial and commercial areas further. The Filoil Development and Management Corporation (FMDC), with the aid of the Local Government Unit of Rosario, has started to develop 134 hectares of Philippine National Oil Corporation property into a special economic zone that will have an industrial estate, low cost housing, and a port to facilitate transport of products and services to and from the ecozone. A proposed reclamation will increase the land area of Barangays Sapa II and III by 200 hectares.


1. TANZA: A Prime Tourist Destination

The town is known for its multitude of swimming resorts. Punta del Rio, Villa Excellence, Las Palmas, Celebrity, FE de Castro, Sto. Niño, Florence, Starfish, Garden Coast, Ernie’s and Buenaflor are the notable. Beach resorts. Living up to its old name that is Estancia, meaning a place for vacation, the area really is a vacation spot, a place for rest and relaxation. Business establishments are, likewise, flourishing in which there are now 475. Most of the land is also being developed to become subdivisions and townhomes. Industrial establishments, like Primepak Packaging, Inc., Chung Fu Industries, and Dolphin Environmental Control System, are also beginning to venture in the municipality.
Tanza’s potential lies in its beaches as prime tourist destinations. The local government’s prime concern is to maintain the road networks that lead to Tanza’s natural attractions. Beachfront Property Development is a major investment opportunity. The municipality’s coastline can also be further utilized for the harvests of marine products such as squid, “cabayas” and “bisugo”. The freshwater fishponds of the municipality that produce tilapia are also excellent investment ventures. Tanza is, likewise, known for its dried fish products that are mostly sourced from its coastal barangays. Tanza’s inland areas, on the other hand, can be maximized for agriculture production, specifically the town’s central to northern portions. The production of vegetables and lowland rice is highly encouraged due to the abundant supply of ground water. Part of Tanza’s plains can be converted to high-density urban development use as well.

2. IMUS: A Bustling Commercial Center

The Imus Commercial District along Imus Boulevard (formerly Nueno Avenue) is the center of commerce and trade in the municipality. The Imus Public Market is the hub of commerce and trade in the district. The market is divided into 25 zones and has a total of 805 stalls. Commercial, industrial and manufacturing industries owned by Taiwanese, Japanese and Filipino investors can also be found there. There are 3,601 commercial establishments duly registered in the municipality as of March, 1999.
Investors will find an atmosphere conducive to business and a climate of optimism and buoyancy in Imus. Eighteen major industrial establishments with a total capitalization of 1.311 billion pesos have established their base at the Imus Informal Industrial Estate providing local employment to an estimated 13,478 people as of December 1998. Located just along the stretch of the General Emilio Aguinaldo Highway, the 200-hectare informal industrial estate houses manufacturing companies owned by foreign and Filipino investors. Imus has ventured to the export of automotive wire harness and electrical components, acyclic sheets and lighting fixtures, processed foods, shellcraft, bamboo, rattan and woodcraft, furniture, garments and novelty items to other countries. The implementation of the strategic Daang Hari Road will further augment the development pace of Imus. Several subdivisions and mass housing projects and the establishment of factories and many small-scale industries in many of its barangays have resulted to heavy-in-migration in the municipality.

3. GENERAL TRIAS: A New Frontier for Development in the CALABARZON

Industrialization has become the centerpiece of the municipality’s development plans and programs. Several major industrial estates, such as Gateway Business Park, a world class business community in Javalera and the New Cavite Industrial City (NCIC) in Manggahan, have chosen General Trias to be their home base. The Cavite Export Processing Zone (CEPZ) occupies about 60 hectares of land belonging to General Trias. 110 factories operate in the CEPZ. There are still four industrial estates being developed. One is the Eagle Ridge Golf and Country Club and Residential Estate, which has an area of 700 hectares. The others are the Golden Gate Industrial Park (Phase I) in Buenavista II and Golden Gate Industrial Park (Phase II) in Panungyanan while the rest are found at Barangay Manggahan, Barangay San Francisco and along Governor’s Drive.
The master plan for General Trias is to achieve an agro-industrial and residential balance. Current developments include the construction of the General Trias Auditorium and Sports Complex at General Trias Memorial Elementary School Grounds in Barangay San Juan I, cementing of roads from Barangay Santiago to Governor’s Drive and road widening of Barangay Tejero to San Juan II, the building of General Trias Municipal Hall-Manggahan Annex and completion of a 2-storey Training Center Building at Barangay Pinagtipunan. Housing development is also on the upsurge with 45 subdivisions in the area like Metrosouth, Tierra Nevada, Metropolis Greens, Eagle Ridge, Pasadena Heights I, Stanford City and Governor Hills. The two-hectare public market in between Barangay Corregidor and Sampalucan is said to be more or less worth Php 39,000,000.00. General Trias is considered one of the new frontiers of growth and development in the CALABARZON area as attested by the giant industrial subdivisions located in the town.

4. GENERAL MARIANO ALVAREZ: A Highly Urbanized Commercial-Residential Center

GMA’s public market is the main feature of the central business district. It has been constructed to strengthen the commercialization thrust of the municipality and to decongest the areas occupied by the flea market and ambulant peddlers. Located in Barangay Poblacion I along Congressional Avenue just a few meters away from the municipal bulding, the public market occupies a total area of 7,995 square meters. Local government programs center on the development of GMA’s food crops, high value commercial crops, agro-industrial crops and agro-forestry zones. Diversified farming, livestock production, health care and disease management and the proposed irrigation are among the priority projects of GMA. The Spanish Road and Tower, on the other hand, are potential tourist attractions.

5. DASMARIÑAS: Industrial Giant of the CALABARZON, Richest Town of Cavite, Most Populous Municipality of the Philippines

The municipality of Dasmariñas is one of the fastest growing municipalities in the province of Cavite. Numerous commercial establishments, which include fast foods, groceries, convenient stores, restaurants and other service-oriented businesses, are mostly concentrated in the town proper. Industrial establishments are located in the outskirts of the municipality. It has the greatest number of universities in the province.
From an agri-based economy, the town of Dasmariñas has evolved into a highly urbanized and industrial town. It now boasts of three industrial estates, namely: First Cavite Industrial Estate (FCIE) in Barangay Langkaan, Dasmariñas Technopark located in Barangay Paliparan I and NHA in Bagong Bayan. Aside from these industrial areas, there are 240 other factories/business establishments scattered in the different barangays that sum up to a total of 309 operational industries in the municipality. Dasmariñas is home to hundreds of thousands of residents who occupy the more than 70 residential subdivisions of the municipality. It also serves as a haven to investors with its industrial estates and diverse pool of manpower. The rapid growth of the municipal population near universities, industrial estates and factories provides a ready market for real estate ventures such as subdivisions, apartments and other support services. Its infrastructure projects involving major road construction and widening support the town in its functional role as one of the residential, commercial, industrial and university centers of Cavite. To protect its environment, Dasmariñas has adopted its Luntiang Dasmariñas program, which is envisioned to plant 100,000 seedlings planted over the town during the year 2000.

6. CARMONA: Industrial Corridor of Cavite

Cottage industries include metal works, metalcraft, footwear industries, concrete products, tricycle assembly, rattan handicrafts and bakeries. Manufacturing firms engaged in handicraft (bags and shoes), furniture making, business retailing, personal and business services, and food based enterprises contribute to the municipality’s trade and commerce. Mercantile activities in the municipality are concentrated at the Poblacion area and along the Governor’s Drive. Carmona has been classified as a first class municipality since July of 1996 brought about by industrialization, real estate development and commercial activities.
Carmona’s progress accelerated after the conversion of more than fifty hectares of farmlands into industrial areas in 1998. Garment industries, steel fabrication, microchips and semi-conductors, tool fabrication, bus assembly, bulb factories, die casting and other small and medium-scale industries currently operate in the municipality. These investments continue to provide local employment, generate export earnings, increase municipal revenues and serve as vehicles for technology transfer. There are 114 factories in six industrial parks to date, namely; Granville Industrial Complex, Mountview Industrial Complex, South Coast Industrial Complex, People’s Technology Complex, the Hong Chang Compound and Welbourne Industrial Park. The municipality of Carmona gained popularity as an industrial corridor in the province. Foreign investments are pouring in as export-oriented industries continue to flourish.

Lantic, the construction of a light-rail transit or the monorail type or “trambia” which will connect Carmona to the outlying towns of Canlubang, Silang and Biñan. Tourist attractions of Carmona are the Manila Southwoods Golf and Country Club, the Carmona Race Track (Car Racing) and the Munting Paraiso Resort situated in Brgy. Bancal. The Sorteo ng Bukid, an indigenous practice used to preserve communal agricultural lands, is also part of Carmona’s tourism development program.

7. TRECE MARTIRES CITY: The Seat of Provincial Government

The City’s central business district is situated in Barangay San Agustin specifically along the intersection of the Indang-Trece Martires-Tanza National Road and Governor’s Drive.

Trece Martires City, at the seat of provincial government, is foreseen to be one of the major urban centers of Cavite Province. The thrust of the city are industrialization, agro-modernization, and rapid urbanization with the Poblacion as the center of the City’s administrative, economic and social developments. Growth poles include a 280-hectare industrial estate in Barangay Cabuco along Carmona-Ternate road and the 500-hectare Trece Martires City Industrial Center of Barangays H. Perez, Cabezas, Lallana and Conchu. The city’s tourism sector will be boosted by inauguration of Villa Mintu-Ilas and Cherrydale Resorts both located at Barangay San Agustin. Likewise, a modern shopping arcade is to be constructed opposite the City Public Market. There is a proposal to develop an underground 5-kilometer water tunnel called “MINA” located at Barangay Cabezas into a tourist attraction.



1. SILANG: Food Bastion of Metro Manila
Manufacturing and trade, aside from agriculture are Silang’s other major sources of income. Trade and investments grew tremendously with the influx of Manila-based and foreign investors. Total investment was estimated at P2.5 billion from 1996 which helped bring about the employment of 3,000 people. The investment trend resulted to the increase in the price of prime lots from P3,000 to P15,000 per square meter and from P150 to P500 per square meter for raw lots at interior barangays.
The vastness of Silang offers a prospective haven for real estate, industrial, commercial and agro-industrial development. Silang, in fact, is envisioned to be a major agri-business center, a trading post and manufacturing center to serve the local and nearby towns’ agricultural producers and traders. The local government has recently completed the construction of the dry goods section of the Silang Public Market, which can now accommodate 228 stalls. Also, the presence of a number of natural and scenic spots in the town position the place to be the perfect site for the development of the tourism industry. The Riviera Golf and Country Club has two 18-hole championship courses designed by Fred Couples and Bernhard Langer and a 9-hole compact course providing a world-class golfing experience. The historic Silang Catholic Church and the Riviera Golf and Country Club Plant World are the other tourist attractions in the area. In 1997, Silang was adjudged as the most peaceful municipality in Region IV, and in 1998 the cleanest in Cavite. Moreover, Silang houses the Maguyam Industrial Complex and the Daichi Industrial Complex in addition to a total of ten factories operating outside the export processing zone.

2. NAIC: Industrial Terminal & Amusement Center of the Future

Naic remains an agricultural and eco-tourism area. The place is rich in beaches and remnants of turn-of-the-century structures and houses, which showcase the glorious past of the town. It is also being eyed as a place for the spillover of industrial development in the neighboring towns highlighted by the entry of light industries in Barangay Halang and environs. Private investors plan to develop an Aqua-Park, an Amusement Center and a Theme Park in Coastal City. The town has great potential to be a major recreational and residential zone for the CALABARZON as well. Naic continues to be a popular trading center for the people of adjacent towns like Tanza, Maragondon, Ternate, Indang and Magallanes. Naic is identified also as a principal alternative to the planned conversion of Sangley Point Naval Base into an International Container Terminal. Naic’s New Port is envisioned to absorb the excess cargo traffic in the National Capital Region.

3. MENDEZ: Economic Development on the Rise

With a terrain that is moderately undulating, rolling and sloping, Mendez has a soil type suitable for upland rice, corn, coconut, rootcrops and coffee production.

The size of coffee farms in the town has an average of 1.34 hectares.

4. MARAGONDON: Historic Town & a Wildlife Sanctuary

The major thrust of Maragondon is the development of its agricultural sector. Some 6,821 hectares of agricultural lands suitable for crop production such as rice, vegetables and fruits are to be opened up. Modern farm technology, financial assistance by providing credit facilities, and infrastructure support are also part of the town’s strategy for agricultural development. The improvement of farm to market roads to ease and to speed up the transport of goods, the repair of town plaza and the expansion and maintenance of the municipal building are top priority projects of the municipal government. Likewise, Maragondon aims to encourage small and medium scale cottage industries particularly those that utilize indigenous raw materials to achieve self-sufficiency in livestock, poultry and fish production. The maintenance of historical landmarks, the conversion of the municipal park, as well as the development of wildlife sanctuaries and forest reserves to bring the tourism sector of Maragondon to its full potential, are also part of Maragondon’s development plans. Maragondon became the nation’s focus of attention, in recent times, when former US Pres. Jimmy Carter sponsored the construction of 200 houses in the town.

5. MAGALLANES: An Eco-Tourism Center The corridor of development for the municipality is centered on agriculture. The rich soil and cool climate of Magallanes is highly suited for it. The town can be groomed as a major supplier of vegetables, fruits, sugarcane and coffee to the lowlands, especially Metro Manila. The municipality is currently upgrading its road networks since essential to agricultural development is the construction of roads that will serve as the link between the farms of Magallanes and the lowlands. The tourism sector of Magallanes can also be tapped for development with its many springs and rivers. The Utod Spring in Barangay Tua can be packaged into a tourist destination. Projects of the municipal government include the completion and beautification of the town plaza and the reforestation and tree planting activities along the 30-meter stretch on both sides of Magallanes’ riverbanks to preserve running water.

6. INDANG: Upland Market Center

The operation and continuous expansion of the public market and the full operation of the town’s slaughterhouse have gained recognition for Indang as an Upland Market Center of Cavite. A proposed vegetable section and the completion of the wet section building are some of the projects undertaken by the municipal government to increase economic activities in Indang. The town further aims to capitalize on its rich agricultural lands and numerous springs and to direct Indang’s development to becoming the vegetable center of Cavite. For these reasons, the municipality plans to establish good farm to market roads to facilitate transport of goods and services. Indang also tries to address its solid waste management by the provision of a temporary dumpsite. The protection of the town’s natural resources and the development of tourism and recreational centers are likewise encouraged.

7. GENERAL EMILIO AGUINALDO: A Center for Agro Modernization

The improvement of the infrastructure system is crucial to the progress and development of General Emilio Aguinaldo. Tourism-oriented activities like trading of processed foods for picnics, “pasalubongs” and souvenirs are being eyed as additional sources of incomes. Excursions to Malibiclibic Falls and other water bodies are being developed such as the “Stairway to Heaven” in Poblacion III. Aside from commercial bottling of spring water, other identified potential industrial investment areas in GEA are: Agro-industries Organic fertilizer making Handmade grass paper making Mahogany plant nurseries Cutflower growing Black pepper grounding and retail packing Flower drying and poutpourri making Bamboo craft (kaing and flowerbasket, Christmas lantern making)

8. AMADEO: Coffee Capital of the Philippines

There is a perceived need to harness the potential of the town’s agricultural lands through the use of new technology, machineries and modern methods of coffee production, agricultural product processing and preservation. The municipality’s coffee production has a great surplus, most of which are marketed in Metro Manila and in the other towns of the province. The municipal government has undertaken various projects such as the rehabilitation of the Old Municipal Building, the repair of the Amadeo Central School and the construction of Banaybanay Road. The town is also suitable for high-class housing projects and real estate development due to its temperate climate, lush growth of trees and underbrush and proximity to the well-known city of Tagaytay. The municipal government has identified the area along the eastern side of Daang Paso Road as an agro-industrial zone.

9. ALFONSO: Agro-Industrial Center of the Upland Cavite

Alfonso’s economic base is anchored into being a part of the food belt of Cavite and Metro Manila. It is, therefore, a productive agricultural zone, unlike other municipalities in the province of Cavite that are gradually shifting to industrialization. The area is conducive to agriculture due to the temperate climate and fertility of the town’s soil. The municipality is presently developing cut flower farming and intends to be known as the flower center of the province. What began as a backyard and experimental cultivation, cutflower production, particularly anthuriums and orchids, is now thriving and a fast-growing enterprise. The highlights for the tourism plan of Alfonso is to introduce cutflower festivals and the program “Farm and Home Hosting Scheme”. The hilly and rolling terrain in its western portion can also be developed into grazing land for cattle. Seventy-six hectares of land in the western part of Barangay Amuyong extending to Nasugbu, Batangas boundary have been identified for industrial use. Efforts to have a substantial deposit of hardstone examined by the Bureau of Mines for commercial value in Barangay Kaysuyo, in the western peripheral boundary of the municipality of Nasugbu, Batangas is underway. Construction is expected to increase due to the development of large exclusive residential subdivisions.

10. TERNATE: A Major Tourism Growth Center

Ternate is included in the declared first tourism zone of the country due to its scenic mountain ranges, virgin forests, ravines and cliffs, and pristine beaches. It already boasts of the luxurious Puerto Azul and other resorts. Carabao Island, Caraballo Island and Fraile Island situated between Corregidor and mainland Ternate likewise have investment potentials for tourism. The rivers, swamps and marshes can further be developed into commercial fishponds. The long-term effects of large-scale tourism projects for the town would result in more employment opportunities and income for the people arising from the expected increase in demand for essential local support services such as food, accommodation, souvenir items and other tourism related activities.

11. TAGAYTAY CITY: The Country’s 2nd Summer Capital

Tagaytay’s three anchors of growth are tourism, agriculture and the development of the City’s institutions. The City’s inherent environmental splendor and unique rustic atmosphere, made possible by Tagaytay’s God-given natural endowments and fresh cool air, has fueled it to its present state of growth. Careful implementation of land use policies is being undertaken to protect the city’s agricultural sector. The community aims to sustain a strong ecological-tourism base with ample physical and social infrastructure system support. Tagaytay is a city in transition. There is a fundamental shift occurring in the City’s economic structure from an agro-based to a service-oriented community. The current business trend in Tagaytay is the construction of exclusive weekend residential and recreational activities.

But marketing is much more than selling and advertising. How Marketing Relates to Production Production is a very important economic activity.

Their attitude is reflected in the old saying:“Make a better mousetrap and the world will beat a path to your door.” In otherwords, they think that if you just have a good product, your business will be a success. The point is that production and marketing are both important parts of a total business system aimed at providing consumers with need- satisfying goods and services. Together, production and marketing supply five kinds of economic utility—form, task, time, place, and possession utility that are needed to provide consumer satisfaction. Here, utility means the power to satisfy human needs. Form utility is provided when someone produces something tangible—for instance, a bicycle. Task utility is provided when someone performs a task for someone elsefor instance, a bicycle. The product must be something that consumers want or there is no need to be satisfied.
