The Marikina LGU shared the top spot with Iloilo City. The LGUs of Mandaluyong and Malabon ranked second in the category. Lucena City in Quezon Province ranked third.

Since the establishment of the CMCI in 2012 as a basis and measurement of competitiveness in the country 2012, the number of participating LGUs have grown from 285 in 2013 to 1,389 in 2016.

The summit was held in partnership with the International Council for Small Business Philippines, Globe Business, UnionBank of the Philippines, Dynamic Global Soft Inc., Grab, Junca Holdings, Maximilian Advisers, CIBI Information, Inc., PJ Lhuiller, Inc., Isoc Holdings, Shopee, Bexcs Logistics Solutions, ICity Technologies Inc., Business Innovations Gateway Inc., Newport World Resort, BNI Philippines, and 360NextGen.
