At Ayala, we've always subscribed to the view that building local competitiveness is essential to boosting long-term national competitiveness; the two things are absolutely linked together. Our provinces and cities are the primary movers of economic growth and production and, in a way, they're collectively the engines which power the whole country.
The Liveable Cities Philippines and the League of Cities of the Philippines, in partnership with Globe Telecom, are pleased to present the Liveable Cities LocalLabs. LocalLabs will also be a platform for sharing good practices, innovation, appropriate technology, and for urban planning and LGU management. The key difference is that LocalLabs will focus on a specific Province and its Cities.
A new and improved Liveable Cities Dashboard is set to launch this April. A preview to this project was presented by Liveable Cities Challenge Chairman Bill Luz and UK Ambassador to the Philippines Daniel Pruce during the first (virtual) Liveable Cities Labs for 2021 on February 24.
The Dashboard creates a visual overview and informative profile of the 146 cities in the Philippines. It consolidates multiple data sources of city information across various indicators over time - Basic Info, Jobs and Skills, Education, Local Economy, Doing Business, Mobility and Interconnectivity, Health, Urban Environment, Resiliency and Emergency Response, and Safety and Security.
Local chief executives in Metro Manila and in the provinces bared their respective COVID-19 vaccination plans on Wednesday, highlighting the importance of the local governments' preparedness to be able to convince their constituents to be inoculated against the coronavirus.
