MINDANAO DEVELOPMENT CORRIDORS

A “Mindanao has fared well in terms of economic growth and infrastructure development, but the potential for further growth is high... Together, we are laying down the core strategies for the growth of Mindanao Region.” - President Benigno S. Aquino III

Aligning with the national government’s Social Contract with the Filipino People, the Mindanao Development Authority (MinDA) adopts the Mindanao Development Corridors as a key spatial strategy that will help pave the way for a connected and globally-competitive Mindanao.

Focus on optimizing growth of regions based on their potentials and strategic roles in the overall development of Mindanao;

Build on the trade and economic strengths between and among regions through improved infrastructure, connectivity, logistics, industry development and investment facilitation.

BIODIVERSITY and ECO-TOURISM CLUSTER

NORTHERN MINDANAO DEVELOPMENT CORRIDOR

Mindanao is subdivided into three (3) development corridors: Northern Mindanao Development Corridor, South-Central Mindanao Development Corridor, and Western Mindanao Development Corridor with five (5) industrial clusters that have complementary roles and competitive advantages.

Under the Mindanao 2020 Peace and Development Framework Plan as MinDA’s roadmap for peace and development, this corridor initiative aims to improve infrastructure, establish connectivity, and spur the development of growth clusters within Mindanao, allowing it to achieve balanced and inclusive growth among its regions. This will also help position Mindanao as a single, integrated economy that is able to leverage and participate in EAGA, ASEAN, and the global economic community.

Biodiversity and Eco-Tourism Cluster in South Central Corridor is characterized by a diverse ecosystem with rainforests, cave formations, rivers, pristine shorelines, and critical habitats of endemic flora and fauna. Of the total 2.0 million hectares forest cover area of Mindanao, around 40% are found in this cluster.

SOUTH-CENTRAL MINDANAO DEVELOPMENT CORRIDOR

The business and industrial cluster in Northern Mindanao is the gateway to domestic markets in Visayas and Luzon as it hosts the Laguindingan Airport, Mindanao Integrated Container Terminal (MICT) and other heavy and large industries in the Cagayan-Iligan Industrial Corridor. PHIVIDEC, with 88 manufacturing and service oriented firm locators, operates within the cluster.

The mariculture and trade cluster, located in the Western Mindanao Corridor, is the top producer of fishery-based products and seaweed in Mindanao, accounting for 60 % of its total output. A large share of Mindanao’s total production in rubber (52%), mango (37%), and coconut (24%) is also accounted for by this cluster. This cluster enjoys edge in trade and economic cooperation given its cultural ties and proximity to Malaysia, Indonesia, and Brunei Darussalam.

More than 50% of Mindanao’s total agriculture production comes from the South Central Mindanao Corridor making it the food basket of the country. Of the total palay and corn production in Mindanao, around 60% and 55% is contributed by this cluster, respectively.

Sources: BAS, PSA

Food, agri and agri-processing industry, and mineral resource development dominate the South Central Mindanao Development Corridor. Davao City, the business, tourism and services hub and General Santos City, the agri-business, trade, finance, and transport hub, serve as twin main growth centers in this cluster. Of the total Mindanao Gross Value Added in Trade, 53.8% is contributed by this cluster.
