Mactan Export Processing Zone
mactan-mepz.jpg

The Mactan Export Processing Zone (MEPZ) is Cebus prime showcase of export-oriented growth. The 120-hectare industrial estate started out with only eight firms in 1986.

But today, it keeps on expanding firms manufacturing a wide variety of goods and services.

The growing activity in the MEPZ reflects the fast-paced economic development that is taking place in Cebu. The Mepz registered the largest positive trade balance among the four export processing zones in the country. Being labor-intensive, the MEPZ scaled new heights in employment. The zone increased in the number of skilled and unskilled workers.

Factories at the MEPZ deliver world-class products to the United States, the European Economic Community and Japan. Such products include watches, semiconductors, electrical equipment, garments and precious jewelry.

Enterprises with manufacturing facilities at the zone are predominantly multinational corporations. Half of these are Japanese-owned.

mactan-sutukil.jpg

The term sutukil is a humorous derivation from three Cebuano words: sugba, tuwa, kilaw -- which are three ways of preparing food, particularly seafood like fish.

If we talk about fish, sugba means to broil fish over hot charcoal; tuwa means to cook fish in boiling water together with some spices and seasoning; kilaw means to prepare fish raw but immersing it in very sour vinegar together with spices like onions, garlic and pepper.

Eating places that offer seafood in these three various ways are called sutukil restaurants or carenderias. In Lapulapu City, the most famous place for treating friends to sutukil is the barangay (village) of Mactan (same name as the island), near the boundary of another village, Punta Engaņo.

The sutukil restaurants in barangay Mactan are just across the memorial circle containing the Magellan shrine and the monument of Lapulapu.

People from all over Metro Cebu and a number of foreign tourists are frequently seen in this place to enjoy the rich variety of seafood available in over a dozen sutukil restaurants clustered here.
