  2. 2. Region VII <ul><li>A region of the Philippines located in the central part of the Visayas island group . It consists of four provinces — Bohol , Cebu , Negros Oriental , and Siquijor — and the highly urbanized cities of Cebu City , Lapu-Lapu City , and Mandaue City .

Mangoes are harvested all year round These fruits are exported to other countries. The center of commerce in the southern part of the Philippines is Cebu. Many foreigners establish their businesses there. This is one reason why the Mactan International Airport was constructed. Tourism plays a big part in the economic development of the region. The tourists flock to see the Shrine of Magellan's Cross in Cebu. Bohol's pride is the Chocolate Hills. Oil is also being tapped in the region. It is believed that in the years to follow, the progress in the region would be greater if oil is properly drawn out and it will help in the needs of the country. There are other natural resources waiting to be nurtured and used properly. Businessmen, both local and foreign, would be more than willing to put up their trade.
