RED Welcome Messages

Welcome and thank you for taking time to visit the DENR Region VII. It is our hope that this site will enhance our collaboration with our stakeholders, as well as with you, to accomplish DENR’s mandate and achieve our institutional mission, vision and goals.                                                                                                                                                   

Please have a look around the website and feel free to click on the menu bars and browse on the subject of your interest, such as the technical services we offer, news and events, and updates on DENR’s priority programs for the region.

 

Central Visayas is the region right at the center of the Philippines, located between Luzon and Mindanao. The region is naturally rich in culture, history and natural beauty. The highly urbanized cities of Cebu, Lapu-Lapu and Mandaue, Bohol’s famed Chocolate Hills and tarsier and the  spectacular beach resorts have given the region renown as a tourist attraction.

 

Together with tourism,  manufacturing, mining, farming, and fishing contribute significantly to the regional economy. Manufacturing firms include mining companies, fertilizer plants, sugar central, rice and corn mills and other food processing plants.

 

There is an abundance of mineral resources which account for one of the largest revenue sources of the region. These include silver, manganese, copper, gold, limestone, clay, silica and coal. The waters surrounding the island provinces are well-known fishing grounds.

 

The region is indeed blessed with natural resources that we need to protect, manage, nurture and sustain. The job is not easy. it’s a journey to the future.

Please share your ideas and feedback with us how we are doing as we make this journey together.

 

Again, thank you and feel free to drop us an e-mail on your thoughts, anytime, through the Contact Us tab.

 

 

Dr. Isabelo R. Montejo
