Philippine Regions

  • PDF
“A region (Filipino: Rehiyon) is an administrative subdivision in the Philippines. As of 2002, there are 17 of them and 16 of them are further subdivided into 81 provinces (lalawigan). Regions are generally organized to group provinces that have the same cultural and ethnological characteristics.
 
The provinces are actually the primary political subdivision. They are grouped into regions for administrative convenience. Most government offices establish regional offices instead of individual provincial offices, usually (but not necessarily always) in the city designated as the regional center.
