Mindanao Islands Group

Mindanao Islands Group (MIG) is the least populated of the three island groups with Davao being its largest and most populated area. The emerald island of Mindanao is the second largest island in The Philippines and the richest in mineral contents and production in the country, and it is considered the country's bread basket as over sixty percent of food staples for the country's ninety million plus population is produced here. It is also the country's gateway to the East Asia Growth Area of Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia, & Philippines (BIMP-EAGA) - the truism to that reference is reflected squarely on Zamboanga City and the Peninsula area of Mindanao it services, in its title as the #1 GDP area in the Philippines! Majority of the international income it derives from is from BIMP-EAGA. The south-westward archipelago chain of Sulu and Tawi-Tawi are home to a majority Muslim population and the southern-most tip of The Philippines, bordering next to the island of Sabah. The fertile seas surrounding MIG produces majority of the sea food harvest sold in the country and also shipped for export. MIG is also the most diversified population in the country that lend to the colorful and dynamic culture its people have endured over centuries. It's home to the country's tallest mountain, Mount Apo, and its soaring fauna symbol - the Philippe Eagle.
