Cavite's Population Grows; Business Booms

TRECE MARTIRES CITY, Cavite - Industrialization, entrepreneurship, cooperatives and some other economic ventures thrived in Cavite as the province's population boomed in the last five years, officials said Sunday.

In its latest report, the National Statistics Office (NSO) said Cavite is still the country's most populated province, based on the census surveys in 2007 and 2010.

The NSO made the declaration after President Benigno S. Aquino III signed Proclamation 362 on March 30, which made official the country's 2010 population at 92,337,852.

The Provincial Population Office under Lorena Cron projects Cavite's population by December 2012 at 3,632,275 or 541,584 higher than NSO's 2010 count.

To cope with the population boom, Governor Jonvic Remulla and his administration has come out with an economic agenda for business, livelihood, cooperative and other successful ventures.

Public Employment Service Office (PESO) Manager Eva R. Defiesta said the Department of Labor and Employment (DoLE) has declared Cavite as the most industrialized province with the biggest labor force in the country.

The increasing working sites, as well as housing projects and educational institutions, are one reason why the population continues to rise in Cavite, Dr. Defiesta said.

Amid the population boom, Cavite's employment rate remained at 84.40 percent during the last two years, records showed. The rate is one of the highest among the country's provinces.

Rene R. Tiongson, Provincial Cooperative, Livelihood and Enterprise Development Office (PCLEDO) officer-in-charge, said that the local government under Remulla has tapped the academe, cooperatives. small and medium enterprises and the agriculture-business and manufacturing and service sectors, economic zone locators and other concerned groups to keep the business program in the area successful.

The national government has recognized Cavite as the ''Enterprise Capital of the Philippines'' due to the number of businesses, as well as cooperatives, in the area.

To boost further the enterprise program, Remulla and the other adminsitration officials are set to cite and give finacial aids to three cooperative groups in the province during their flag ceremony today (Monday) at the Capitol.

To be awarded checks are the Municipality of Indang Employes Multi-Purpose Cooperative for their rice loan project, Handog Kaunlaran Credit Cooperative (Barangay Taywanak Ibaba, Alfonso) for additional business operation capital and PASADAKO Multi-Purpose Cooperative (Paliparan II, Dasmariñas City) to purchase sewing machines and additional budget for other needs.
