Download Now Download

Download to read offline

MIMAROPA is an administrative region in the Philippines, designated as Region IV-B. It is one of two regions in the country having no land border with another region, the other being Eastern Visayas. The name is an acronym combination of its constituent provinces, which are: Mindoro (divided into Occidental Mindoro and Oriental Mindoro), Marinduque, Romblon and Palawan. The region is also formally known as the Southern Tagalog Islands.
Calapan City is the regional center. However, most regional government offices such as the Department of Public Works and Highways are in the city of Quezon in Metro Manila.
The region was part of the now-defunct Southern Tagalog region until May 17, 2002.[4] On May 23, 2005, Palawan and the highly urbanized city of Puerto Princesa were moved to the region of Western Visayas by Executive Order No. 429.
However, on August 19, 2005, then-President Arroyo issued Administrative Order No. 129 to hold the earlier EO 429 in abeyance pending a review.

MIMAROPA REGION: AN OVERVIEW

  1. 1. AnOverview…
  2. 2. President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo issued Executive Order 103 (EO103) on May 17, 2002 which subdivided the Southern Tagalog provinces which were included in Region IV into two regions — Regions IV-A and IV-B — to promote efficiency in the government, accelerate social and economic development and improve public services.
  3. 3. Region IV-B is known as MIMAROPA, standing for the island provinces belonging to the region — MIndoro (Oriental and Occidental), MArinduque, ROmblon and PAlawan. EO103 also transferred the province of Aurora to Region III in Central Luzon.
  4. 4. • Executive Order 429 moved Palawan to Region VI on May 23, 2005. • After this, Region IV-B began to be called MIMARO instead of MIMAROPA. However, Palaweños criticized the move, citing a lack of consultation, with most residents in Puerto Princesa City and nearly all municipalities preferring to stay with Region IV-B. • Consequently, Administrative Order No. 129 was issued on August 19, 2005 to address this backlash. This order directed the abeyance of Executive Order 429 pending the approval of an implementation plan for the orderly transfer of Palawan from MIMAROPA to Region VI.

In Marinduque, Tagalog is spoken with a unique blend of Bicolano and Visayan languages. • In the interior of Mindoro, various languages are spoken by Mangyans, and they include Irena, Alangan, Tawbuid, Hanunoo, Tadyawan, Buhid, and Ratagnon. • Romblon, being near the Visayas, has three main languages that belong to Visayan language family namely, Romblomanon, Asi, and Onhan. • Palawan has its own set of native languages such as Cuyonon, Calamian Tagbanwa and Palawano that are spoken by significant numbers of people.
