I’ve heard in the past from Cebuano politicians pushing Cebu City as the next capital of the Philippines, replacing Manila.
I disagree with that idea.
If I base it from Manila’s present condition, it does not look good. Yes, economically, Manila is up there in the clouds.
Manila is over-populated, crime rates shooting up, congested traffic. It’s taking the blame for the whole country’s troubles.
So, Cebu should stay the same, but move up economically and values.
