Expanding Business Opportunities

The Naga City Government is aggressive in developing new growth zones to capture the market, increase economic productivity, and welcome new investment opportunities. Complementing government infrastructures are being constructed in the 4 new growth zones to accelerate commercial viability of these new locations. These growth areas are part of the government service decentralization in order to better cater to the residents of the city and other populace from neighboring municipalities.
