A Region with Top-Notch Facilities Available
Globally known as the country’s most populous, cosmopolitan, and urbanized region, the National Capital Region (NCR) or commonly known as “Metro Manila” is an extensive place composed of business districts primarily located in Makati, Taguig and Ortigas, at least 8 academic institutions of caliber, 4 dependable medical facilities, and both executive and judicial government branches. Other prominent establishments include the Department of Health’s main office and World Health Organization’s Western Pacific regional Office. Moreover, important places such as the Office of the President at the Malacañang Palace, the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas where all financial functions are centered, and the Sandiganbayan appellate court equivalent to Court of Appeals, are also seated in the area. Indeed, the metro lives up to its name of being one of Philippines’ top cities.
