Bacolod City Hall, 08-14-2014

KMC MAG Group has ranked Bacolod as the third best area outside of Manila for industrial investments in the Philippines.

According to the Bonifacio Global City-based real estate firm, Bacolod is a prime destination after Cebu and Clark Feeport Zone for national and international Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Exhibitions (MICE), BPO services and foreign investments. The firm also cited several of the city's potentials, including its proximity to top placer Cebu and its transformation into an ICT hub.

"The city provides opportunities in various industries such as information technology, agriculture, manufacturing, metalwork, travel services, eco-tourism, and furniture making," it wrote.

Further, it detailed that Bacolod is slowly becoming a highly urbanized city and a flourishing economy due to the rise of communication and utility services, transportation and infrastructure.

A bustling city that has yet to reach its full potential, KMC MAG Group also outlined Bacolod as the center of commerce with well-developed road networks and linkages to other prospering cities, towns and provinces.

Rounding the top 5 list are Sta. Rosa, Laguna and Davao as viable locations and next wave destinations for industrial investments.

KMC MAG Group is the largest Philippine-based real estate brokerage company and an international associate of Savills, a London Stock Exchange listed real estate services provider and one of the largest in the world.
