A Regional Competitiveness Committee (RCC) sets up in eight different provinces and key cities in the country, including Cebu, to gather economic data about provincial communities, and how these fare when compared other Association of Southeast Asian Nation (ASEAN) cities.

The committee is a public-private sector body created to develop strategy for the long-term competitiveness of the Philippines through policy reforms, project implementation and monitoring performance among others.

The RCC network—which includes Cagayan de Oro, Tacloban City, General Santos City, Davao City, Batangas City, Legaspi City, Iloilo City and Cebu— is expected to be in place by June.

The creation of the RCC paves way for the country to be more competitive as each region, city or province would become aware of their strengths and weaknesses. The information of each region, city or province can guide improvements on their individual competitiveness and the whole country’s competitiveness.

The RCC would benefit Cebu because it would become a venue for the stakeholders to work together and gather the economic data according to indices which include basic economic information like population, wage rate, infrastructure, and quality of life, education, safety and health, cost of doing business, and the human resources available here.
