Southern Philippines

Strategically located in the south of the Philippines, this resource-rich region is made up of the islands of Mindanao, Davao and Cagayan de Oro. Highly diversified, the Southern Philippines enjoys sustained economic growth and is home to the Phividec Industrial Estate. The country’s largest, it hosts light to medium industries. The region is composed of five provinces and nine cities with a thriving economy.

The international seaport and container terminals located in Mindanao make it an attractive business location. They serve the entire region and are among the most efficient in the country. Close proximity and historical ties to Malaysia and Indonesia allow for excellent trading opportunities.
