San Jose del Monte is now a highly urbanized city – The Manila Times

President Rodrigo Duterte has declared San Jose del Monte in the province of Bulacan to be a highly urbanized city subject to ratification by the plebiscite.

San Jose del Monte official Florida Robes announced the presidential statement during Saturday’s inauguration of the San Jose del Monte Convention Center.

“We have been waiting a long time for this and we will do more to make this statement truly worthy of the people of San Jose del Monte,” Robes said.

The President’s Declaration 1057 stipulates that cities with a minimum population of 200,000 certified by the Philippine Statistical Office and with a final annual income of at least P50 million will be classified as highly urbanized cities.
