Mandaue City thrives as an economic powerhouse in the heart of the Visayas, where culture and commerce intertwine seamlessly. Under the dynamic leadership of Rep. Emmarie “Lolypop” Ouano-Dizon of its lone congressional district, the city pulsates with vitality, leveraging its rich heritage and strategic location to drive growth and development.

At the forefront of Mandaue City’s economic expansion are industry giants like San Miguel Corporation and Coca-Cola, whose significant operations provide employment opportunities and bolster the city’s economic strength. Since the 1960s, these corporations have put Mandaue City on the national map, contributing to its status as a key player in the country’s economic landscape.

Key to Mandaue City’s success is its connectivity, with two bridges linking it to Lapu-Lapu City and the Mactan-Cebu International Airport.

This strategic positioning makes Mandaue a crucial gateway to mainland Cebu’s tourism destinations, solidifying its role in the Philippines’ logistics and supply chain network.

Former mayor Alfredo “Pedong” Ouano’s visionary project, the Mandaue Reclamation Area, has been instrumental in reshaping the city’s landscape.

This vibrant commercial hub, born from coastal areas, now hosts malls, universities, hospitals, and office buildings, driving economic vitality and urban development.

Despite challenges like flooding, Rep.  Lolypop continues to lead Mandaue City forward with resilience and sustainability in mind.

Through flood-control projects and community engagement, she ensures the city’s infrastructure and residents’ well-being are safeguarded.

Mandaue City embodies President Bongbong Marcos Jr.’s vision of a ‘Bagong Pilipinas’ – an innovative, inclusive Philippines.

Its success serves as a blueprint for cities nationwide, showcasing the power of strategic planning, investment, and community collaboration.

The story of Mandaue City is one of vision, progress, and resilience. Through initiatives like the Mandaue Reclamation Area and ongoing flood-control efforts, the city leads the way for sustainable urban development and economic growth in the Visayas and beyond.
