Feature: Cavite "historical capital" of the Philippines

by Carlo P. Gonzaga

Calamba City (8 September) -- Cavite 1st District Representative Joseph Emilio Abaya is pushing a bill in Congress for the declaration of Cavite as "historical capital" of the Philippines.

Abaya said the struggle for independence against the Spanish colonizers in 1896 started in Cavite, the home of the first President of the Republic, Emilio Aguinaldo and many other national heroes.

Cavite was also the birthplace of the Philippine flag and national anthem, and the site of the declaration of independence in 1898, Abaya added.

Aside from the significant events mentioned, Abaya pointed out that it's saddening to know that only in the history books the province of Cavite is recognized.

To receive the recognition it deserve, Abaya authored House Bill 106 declaring Cavite as "Philippines historical capital."

According to Abaya, it is high time the province of Cavite be given the due recognition because of the important role it played in the nation's history.

If passed, House Bill 106 will contribute in raising the standard of tourism industry in the province. The Department of Tourism (DoT), National Historical Institute (NHI), and the local government units involved are mandated to formulate the historic-tourism master plan, drawing of rules and regulations in the promotion of tourism, and protection of historical landmarks in Cavite.
