Top Ten New Wave Cities for 2010

Davao and Dumaguete have been listed in the Top Ten New Wave Cities for 2010, this according to an email from the Commission on Information and Communications Technology.  Davao is number one, Dumaguete is number ten.  While I was first gratified by the news, I'm mollified by the thought that this list covers, well, just about every metro city in the country.

Dear Top Ten Next Wave Cities,

Congratulations to the Top Ten NWCs for 2010! I've attached the Press Release that we gave out the Press earlier during the announcement ceremonies held earlier. Commissioner Mon will personally email you all to make it an official announcement from the CICT. Menawhile, we just wnated to share with you the good news so that you can catch the coverage of Channel 5 (in MM) of the announcement and perhaps see if the Cyber press have released any stories online. 

BTW, Metro Clark, you have been elevated to our "hall of fame" so to speak as a Center of Excellence in the likes of Metro Manila and Cebu. the announcement was formally made by both CICT and BPAP during the announcement.

So here it is our Top Ten NWCs for 2010:
 
(1) Davao
(2) Sta. Rosa
(3) Bacolod City
(4) Iloilo City
(5) Metro Cavite
(6) Lipa City
(7) Cagayan de Oro
(8) Malolos City
(9) Baguio City
(10) Dumaguete City

Again, congratulations all!!
