Emerging Cavite Current, Ongoing, and Upcoming Developments in Cavite

Cavite, part of the CALABARZON Region, is a province located in the southern part of Luzon. Cavite occupies a peninsula on the southern shores of Manila Bay. It is a densely populated province of the Philippines, with a total population of 3,678,101 (Philippine Statistics Authority, 2021).


It has unique topography divided into four areas: the lowest lowland area, lowland area, central hilly area, and upland mountainous area. This makes it ideal for business and leisure. As such, it is one of the most industrialized and one of the fastest-growing provinces in the country because of its close proximity to Metro Manila and its prime cities like Las Pinas and Muntinlupa, located just 14km south of the capital. Due to the province’s proximity to Metro Manila, the cities and municipalities have become characterized by sprawling residential estates which are associated with the booming developments in the area. In short, if there are people, there will be developments.

Industrial and infrastructure development is a major driver of Cavite’s economic growth which has at least 32 economic zones and several industrial estates. The Largest of which is the PEC Industrial Park found in General Trias. The “Historical Capital of the Philippines” is most viable for business development as well as residential communities due to its proximity and ease of travel to Metro Manila. Here are the current, ongoing, and upcoming developments in the province of Cavite.

The province also has other prominent cities such as Dasmarinas, Imus, Bacoor and Tagaytay.
