Mayor Evangelista welcomes DTI recognition of Kidapawan as 3rd most competitive component city in Mindanao


Kidapawan City Mayor Joseph Evangelista said that good governance and effective public service are the reasons why the city has been chosen as the third Most Competitive Component City in Mindanao by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) last year.

“This recognition is for all of the Kidapawenyos. Your City Government will always do its best to serve and roll out programs that will be beneficial for all,” the local chief executive said.

Despite the 2019 earthquake and the crisis due to coronavirus pandemic, he said that the local government will continue to implement its programs and projects for the people.

He also said that businesses in the city remain robust despite the pandemic.

Out of 27 component cities in Mindanao, Tagum City ranked first as the Most Competitive, followed by Cotabato City and then Kidapawan City.
