The National Capital Region

The National Capital Region, more popularly known as Metro Manila, is the Philippines in microcosm. It is the country's premier region located in the central part of Luzon. It is the country's political, economic, social, educational, recreational and cultural hub that it exerts a dominant influence on the rest of the country's regions.

Emerging from a small tribal settlement on the banks of the Pasig river near the mouth of Manila Bay, NCR has grown into a thriving, urban sprawl consisting of 17 contiguous areas.

History tells us that Metro Manila first spread along an area south of the Pasig River and flat coastal lands between Manila Bay and the Marikina Valley. A large portion of the Manila Bay was reclaimed to the west in the 1980's to cover a wider urbanized area.

The National Capital Region is the country's capital and considered the nation's gateway to the world. It remains the country's major commercial, financial and educational center and the heart of the country's national government. Its strategic location enables the formation of the nation's economic, political and social structure that trickles down to the countryside.

Since 1975, Metro Manila has been designated the National Capital Region. At present, 14 cities and 3 municipalities comprise the National Capital Region. Its 14 cities include: Manila, Quezon City, Caloocan, Pasay, Parañaque, Makati, Taguig, Pasig, Mandaluyong, Malabon, Muntinlupa, Valenzuela, Marikina, and Las Piñas. While the three municipalities are Pateros, San Juan and Navotas.

The metropolis lists several trading centers and shopping malls, including the Ayala Center, Greenbelt Shopping Center, Landmark (Makati), the SM malls in Mandaluyong, Quezon City, Las Pinas and Manila, Robinson's malls in Pasig, Manila, Las Pinas; Rustan's Department Stores, Festival mall, and the Tutuban Center. Recent additions are major commercial centers such as The Fort Bonifacio Business Park and the Rockwell Center in Makati.

Metro Manila is also home to the major financing institutions including the Asian Development Bank (ADB). There are 47 commercial banks, 16 thrift banks and two (2) specialized government banks to date.

There are 81 higher educational institutions including and 1,559 elementary and secondary schools in the metropolis posting a literacy rate of 92.4 percent. Noted educational institutions such as the Asian Institute of Management (AIM), University of Asia and the Pacific (UAP), University of the Philippines, the International School, Ateneo de Manila, University of Santo Tomas and De La Salle University are among the many that can be found here.
