Municipality of Naujan
Naujan is a first class municipality, and the largest in the Province of Oriental Mindoro located north of the Province’s Capital, Calapan City. Consistent with the environmental characteristics and economic orientation of the Province, the municipality is primarily an agricultural area. On the other hand, because of the rich environment, it could develop more with a vibrant tourism destination. Hon. Mayor Mark Marcos currently heads the municipality in his first term.
Various agricultural products from grains (rice and corn), banana, lanzones, rambutan and other fruits, vegetables, and root crops are produced in the municipality. Because of its rich environment, livestock, poultry and fresh and saltwater fish are also produced. This rich environment also endowed the municipality with several tourist attractions that may be vigorously promoted and with it, anchor economic programs. There are a number of falls because of its mountainous surroundings, there are also hot springs and of course beach resorts. With good infrastructure, tourism could be made to complement the municipality’s and the province’s agriculture industry.
