BRIA Homes eyes stronger VisMin presence in its portfolio of residential developments

With such buoyant prospects for VisMin, BRIA Homes,
one of the country’s top developers of best-value housing,
 has bolstered its presence in these regions

In the past, one prevailing socioeconomic myth held the idea that all roads led to bustling Metro Manila, where bountiful employment and business opportunities awaited ambitious and hardworking Filipinos. Tiny as the Philippine archipelago is, Visayas and Mindanao used to be considered as trailing behind the National Capital Region in terms of progress and development. 

Fast-forward to the present times, nothing could be further from the truth. Business and industry have fast acknowledged the tremendous potential that VisMin offers, making it a much-coveted region for both government and private sector investments. With Visayas and Mindanao as hosts to some of the country’s most fascinating and culturally diverse places, the region is developing into a center for agro trade and world-class tourism, providing a plethora of employment opportunities to local Visayans, Mindanaoans and Filipino migrants who have set up roots in the South.
