Baguio City: Ranked 4th Most Improved City in the Philippines in 2019

Cordillera - Baguio City was hailed as the fourth Most Improved Highly Urbanized City in the country this year, a huge leap compared to its previous ranking in 2018. 

The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) - Competitiveness Bureau released the result during the 7th Regional Competitiveness Summit on Thursday October 24, 2019 at the Philippine International Convention Center.

Baguio placed fourth in the "economic dynamism" category behind Cagayan de Oro, Bacolod and Paranaque.

Economic dynamism measures the economic activity and productivity of the local government in a particular city jurisdiction. 

The rankings of cities and municipalities are based on the ratings of the four pillars which include economic dynamism, government efficiency, infrastructure and resiliency.

The ranking serves as an opportunity for local policy makers and public officials to do more, to become innovative and to utilize and manage resources more effectively.

DTI Secretary Ramon M. Lopez encouraged each city and municipality to "focus on addressing critical challenges and working together through coordination with the government and collaboration with stakeholders from private sectors." 


  1. Wow!!!kudos to all the officials and law abiding citizens of Baguio..way to go..our Summer capital city of the Philippines..

  2. Do something about the traffic, its very congested everywhere you go around the city,, too much car,, its like a mini manila to me..

    1. Wow your of topic can you just pls be happy and thankful for what they have done.punta ka ea lugar na alam aong wlang traffic

    2. Most cars are from outside Baguio...especially weekends...more cars coming from any place...

    3. Police nag papa traffic pag walang police walang traffic

    4. Parang hindi mo alam pag may police may trapic sa Baguio

    5. Kaya nga 4th most improved ka c maraming tourists na nagdulot ng trapik. Lol...

  3. Number 4. More like number 1 in traffic.

  4. Some of you complaining about the traffic? Like duuhhh!!! some Tourists po nagpapatraffic ng Baguio just so you know

  5. Hay naku. Ang daming pessimists sa mundo. Pwede ba let's be happy muna at least umarangkada ang Baguio. "Problema sa traffic?" Kung walang parking space huwag bumili ng sasakyan. May law tayo na ganyan if I remember correctly. At tsaka ang sabi tumaas ang "economic activity and productivity" kaya 4th most improved city hindi sinabing dahil "walang traffic" or something along that line. Gashung talaga. Maging masaya naman kayo huwag yung hihilain niyo pa pababa sarili niyong tahanan. Jusko!

  6. OMG.... Naku... Traffic is everywhere naman... Kung sana di niyo dalhin sasakyan niyo sa Baguio at mag commute na lang.. Naka tulong pa kayo ng malaki....
    Subukan niyo kaya....

  7. Daming nega tlga . Why don't you just be happy with what we reached . Traffic is not a measure of becoming an improved city hellooo! Read and understand bago comment .

  8. oo nga po,be happy nlng tyo na atleast nag uumpisa nang naiimprove na ang City of Baguio..karangalan na yang natatamasa ng syudad natin.

  9. The ttaffic situation is being addressed but if you think it will be an easy solution, then you are wrong. It will take years before a major solution can be achieved. Right now traffic specialist are on the job. Keep the faith. Hopefully a manageable solution can be provided.
