Iloilo City is a famous travel and heritage destination located in the western part of the Visayas region. Being the last Spanish-colonial capital of the Philippines, the city features treasured historical sites, rich cultural traditions, delicious cuisine, and friendly locals whose language has a unique song-like quality.
Other than a heritage city, Iloilo is a centre for trade, commerce, technology, finance, medical tourism, and education in Western Visayas. Its growing IT sector has created thousands of jobs for the locals. In fact, the city has been named one of the ‘Next Wave Cities’ for its capacity to host information technology-business process outsourcing (IT-BPO) companies.
Iloilo’s government also offers incentives to businesses in certain investment areas, which is another reason it attracts a growing number of investors.
