The Municipality of Roxas may be appropriately considered as one of the few municipalities in the Province of Palawan endowed with the most enviable geographic location. Roxas fully enjoys the benefits of having unimpeded access to marine resources on one hand and lands that are highly suitable for agricultural development, tourism development and environmental protection.

The town of Roxas is located on the northern portion of Palawan. It is bounded on the north by the municipalities of Taytay and San Vicente, on the northeast by the town of Dumaran and the City of Puerto Princesa on the south. Roxas has a total land area of 127,040.37 hectares or 8.5 percent of the total provincial land area.

In terms of its relative distance, Roxas is about 134 kilometers north northeast of Puerto Princesa City, passing through concreted National Highway for an approximate travel time of three (3) hours on public transport. The scenic travel via Puerto Princesa City-Roxas National Highway traverses along fine beaches near the azure sea, ascends to the top of a verdant mountain, snakes along wide valleys, cuts through stone cliffs or in the middle of rice paddies or towering coconut groves, and passes through wide major river systems.

The Municipality of Roxas is accessible by land, sea and even air transport. It has sea port that can be used by light sea crafts like yacht and small to medium-sized ships. It also has air strip that caters light aircraft used in transporting live fish industry and is located in Bgy. New Barbacan (Retac) of which is now part of Poblacion.

From the north, Roxas is about a little over 80 kilometers from the municipality of Taytay or an average travel time of two to two and a half (2 – 2 ½) hours on public land transport. The Municipality of El Nido is about 119 kilometers from Roxas with corresponding average of five (5) hours of travel on public land transport while the town of San Vicente on the other hand is 33 kilometers. The towns of Dumaran and Araceli are 64 and 94 kilometers away from Roxas and accessible on a day’s ride by bus and boat ride. The Municipalities of Cuyo and Cagayancillo Islands are respectively 114.38 and 136.64 nautical mile away from Roxas.

THE GATEWAY TO NORTHERN PALAWAN

The Municipality of Roxas serves as the major urban center in the northern part of the province and has been aptly named “Gateway to Northern Palawan” as it bridges Puerto Princesa to northern municipalities and provides trade, transport and center of administrative and commercial services catering to the needs of other northern mainland municipalities and other adjacent northern island municipalities of the province. Transportation is highly significant due to its vital role in facilitating development and Roxas is well known for round the clock transportation services that ply southbound to Puerto Princesa or northbound to municipalities of Taytay, San Vicente, Dumaran and El Nido.

The Municipality of Roxas is one of the primary settlement areas in the Province of Palawan and is considered as the primary urban center in the northern mainland part of the province. The existing urban services and functions in the municipality such as the private clinics and hospital, district offices, commercial establishments, hardware stores, rural banks, tertiary education institutions, tourism areas, lodging houses, inns and restaurants are some of the indicators that make Roxas a premier center in northern mainland. The Poblacion is the focal point of the development in the municipality. Major educational institutions, the Municipal Hall, health centers, communication facilities, higher rank of urban services and local and national commercial establishments are located therein. Given this, the concentration of population can be found in the Poblacion.

For basic services, Roxas has 24/7 electricity service with 1.380 Megawatt capacity provided by National Power Corporation (NPC) Roxas Diesel Power Plant and distributed by Palawan Electric Cooperative. To further enhance economic development in the Municipality of Roxas, the Sangguniang Panlalawigan ng Palawan recently passed, adopted and approved a resolution requesting the National Power Corporation for additional power to the municipality of Roxas. Potable water is being provided by Roxas Water District with a capacity of 1,500 cubic meters per day from its pumping station in Bgy. IV, Poblacion. Together with the agreement from Provincial Government of Palawan and the Municipal Government of Roxas, it may soon use the Caibulo Water Project which can supply up to 30,000 cubic meters per day.

In terms of telecommunication service, Globe and Smart Telecoms have very good cell site network coverage and each has recently placed their optic fiber cable to supply better telephone and internet service to northern municipalities of Palawan. There are several internet cafes that offers low internet rate per hour of usage. Likewise, there is one (1) cable TV company that offers more than 50 local and international channels and one (1) FM radio station and one (1) AM radio relay station.

With regard to other basic services, the municipality has one (1) private primary hospital with 12 bed capacity, one (1) public primary hospital with 27 bed capacity, one (1) rural health center, (one) 1 municipal fire station with 2 fire trucks and one (1) municipal police station. It also has two (2) rural banks offering 24/7 ATM service.

Currently, Roxas has a total population 61,345 and it has great emphasis on agriculture. Recent estimates indicate that around 70 to 80 percent of the total households are engaged in farming activities. Most of the arable land is being devoted in the production of vital crops such as palay, corn and vegetables either for domestic consumption or to be traded to other municipalities in the province. Other agricultural products include permanent fruit crops such as coconut, cashew, mangoes, citrus and coffee. Roxas boasts its cashew nuts as one of the world’s best, promoting cashew products following the Department of Trade and Industry’s its “One Town, One Product” (OTOP) policy. Roxas is a major supplier of cashew in the Philippines thus dubbing itself as “Cashew Capital of the Philippines”. To back up this claim, the municipality annually celebrates “Casuy Festival” every 15 May and is now on its fifth (5th) year.

The livestock and poultry industry is mainly of the backyard type intended primarily to support household needs and partly for trading purposes to augment household income. Roxas is a major supplier of livestock to Puerto Princesa City and other outlying towns. In recent years, there is an increase of livestock producers investing in small scale particularly swine and poultry farming. Fishing is also considered as one major source of livelihood in the municipality and as primary source of protein among the local citizens.

Commercial activities in the municipality of Roxas are focused mainly in the public market located in Bgy. IV, Poblacion, public transport terminal located in Bgy. II, Poblacion, and along Rizal Street wherein commercial establishments like wholesale and retail stores, groceries, drugstores, petroleum stations, et cetera is located and whereby local residents and those from other northern municipalities exchanges goods and services. With the ongoing construction of the new and modern Public Market and Transport Terminal project, it is projected that opportunities arising from the said project would further boost the economic and employment activities in the town.
