             As the chief executive of the province, I am pleased to warmly welcome each of you to the newly reinaugurated official website of the Provincial Government of South Cotabato.

Since the advent of my administration, the Provincial Government of South Cotabato has been steadfastly dedicated to boosting our local communities by providing excellent public services and by engaging in community immersion to have a better understanding of the predicaments of all our constituents including those who live in far-flung areas. Such commitment is an important foundation of Tama At Maayos Na Serbisyo.

             Rest assured, I will be in constant search of multiple opportunities to further expand and strengthen our economy, to invest in sound infrastructure, to promote effective governance and government service, to improve quality of life for all, and to transform our homeland into a province we can be proud of.Sa mga mamamayan ng South Cotabato, patuloy tayong magkaisa upang makamit natin ang isang lalawigang maunlad at tunay na angat sa lahat.

About South Cotabato

The province is a key player in the merging of South Cotabato , Sarangani and General Santos City into one of the country’s fastest growing development clusters known as SOCSARGEN. SOCSARGEN serves as a gateway for the Brunei-Indonesia-Malaysia-Philippines East ASEAN Growth Area (BIMP-EAGA).

With its location, it is easily accessible from neighboring ASEAN countries via SOCSARGEN’s entryway, General Santos City , with its International Standard Airport that puts key cities in Asia just three to four hours flying time away.

There’s a Fish Port Complex that serves the region’s thriving fishing industry. The Makar Wharf is a major port-of-call in international shipping, and one of the most important ports in Mindanao .

All have paved the way to make the constantly evolving SOCSARGEN the venue for a synergetic relationship. SOCSARGEN’s gateway, General Santos City , is merely five minutes away from one of South Cotabato ‘s municipalities, Polomolok.
