Cabuyao is currently holding the No. 1 spot in the ranking of the Richest Municipalities in the Philippines. Why? Because according to the Commission on Audit, Cabuyao has an annual income of P593,166,000.
Yes, that huge. This is credited to the industrial estates situated in this first class urbanized municipality. These big time industrial companies include Nestlé Philippines, Asia Brewery Inc., San Miguel Corporation, Tanduay Distillers Inc., Wyeth Philippines Inc., and Light Industry and Science Park of the Philippines.
But aside from that, there’s more to Cabuyao than these industrial estates. The Pinay international artist, Charice Pempengco, was born in Cabuyao. Also a native of this town is Charo Ronquillo, the first ever Filipina model to enter the finals of Ford Supermodel of the World Search in 2006 where she bagged 3rd place.
With world-class personalities and companies cradled in this municipality, no wonder why Cabuyao is the country’s richest municipality not just in financial terms but in talents as well.
