Located in Luzon, Philippines, and formerly referred to as the Southern Tagalog Regions, Calabarzon evolved into one acronym in 2003, representing the Provinces of Batangas, Cavite, Laguna, Quezon and Rizal with 19 cities, 124 Municipalities, 4,011 baranggays, and 19 congressional districts. Calabarzon is the second most densely populated area.
Straddling between an industrial and agricultural economy, Region IV-A also has accessible and valuable tourism destinations. It boasts major lakes that provide fish to Metro Manila, and boasts 282, 700 farms with Quezon as the major leader in coconut oil and copra production. It is the home of Taal Lake, Mt. Makiling, the Philippine Rice Institute within the University of the Philippines, Los Baños.
Because Calabarzon is the second largest contributor to the national GDP, the Region is an ideal investment destination for those seeking various investments.

‘The geopolitics of business means the world’s biggest tech firms have swelled to a combined market capitalization of over $4trn without really going head to head.
