PASAY CITY, 24 October 2019 – Philippine Energy Efficiency Alliance (PE2) president Alexander Ablaza accepted the invitation of Trade and Industry Secretary Ramon M. Lopez to serve as one of the award presenters in the 7th Regional Competitiveness Summit, which was held earlier today at the reception hall of the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC).

Ablaza supported the previous programs of the Competitiveness Bureau of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), especially when he co-chaired the Power & Energy Working Group of the transitioning National Competitiveness Council in the last two years.

The Cities and Municipalities Competitiveness Index, a measure of a Local Government Unit’s (LGU) competitiveness based on four pillars – Economic Dynamism, Government Efficiency, Infrastructure and Resiliency– has grown significantly in coverage and participation. This measure presents an opportunity for local government units to better understand their performance against global standards and make transformative and well-informed decisions towards becoming more competitive.

During today’s event, DTI, through the Competitiveness Bureau, recognized LGUs with exemplary performance in these four pillars. With more than 1,500 LGUs participating in this initiative for 2019, awards were given to LGUs in four categories: 3rd to 6th Class Municipalities, 1st to 2nd Class Municipalities, Component Cities and Highly Urbanized Cities.

An award for the Most Competitive Province and Most Improved City and Municipality will also be conferred this year.

Ablaza presented 12 awards to the winning municipal and city LGUs in the Economic Dynamism category. Topping the list of awardees in this category was Pasay City, which was represented by Mayor Imelda Calixto Rubiano.

Joining PE2’s Ablaza to present awardees in the Economic Dynamism category were Riza Mantaring of the Management Association of the Philippines, Coco Alcuaz of the Makati Business Club, George Chua of the Federation of Philippine Industries, Tristan Arwen Loveres of the German Philippine Chamber, Corazon Curay of the Supply Chain Management Association of the Philippines, and Teodorico Gervacio of the Inland Haulers and Truckers Association.
