Gen. Trias, Cavite

The Municipality of General Trias (Filipino: Bayan ng Heneral Trias) formerly San Francisco de Malabon, is a first class municipality in the province of Cavite, Philippines. According to the 2007 census, it has a population of 218,387 people in a land area of 108.7 square kilometers.

General Trias used to be called by many names. During the earlier Spanish era, it was often referred to as Las Estancias (the ranches), which was once a part of Cavite el Viejo, the present-day Kawit. It was also called Malabon Grande. The name Malabon was speculated to have been derived from either the local term “maraming labong,” meaning plenty of bamboo shoots, a main ingredient of a popular local delicacy; or “mayabong,” referring to the trees and other plants once abundant in the place. At any rate, the first reference seems to be more probable because General Mariano Trias, a noted writer, adopted the nom de guerre “Labong,” a word he often used in his writing and conversation. Grande, on the other hand, was affixed to the appellation because at the time, the place was a vast wilderness covering Sitio Tejero, frequently called by the revolutionary as Salinas (present-day Rosario), Sta. Cruz de Malabon or Malabon el Chico (present-day Tanza) and Tierra Alta (present-day Noveleta). When the town was made independent from Cavite el Viejo, it was finally called with its popular name San Francisco de Malabon, in honor of patron saint, Saint Francis of Assisi (1181-1226).

Industrialization has become the centerpiece of the municipality’s development plans and programs. Several major industrial estates, such as Gateway Business Park, a world class business community in Javalera and the New Cavite Industrial City (NCIC) in Manggahan, have chosen General Trias to be their home base. The Cavite Export Processing Zone (CEPZ) occupies about 0.60 square kilometres of land belonging to General Trias. 110 factories operate in the CEPZ. There are still four industrial estates being developed. One is the Eagle Ridge Golf and Country Club and Residential Estate, which has an area of 7 square kilometres. The others are the Golden Gate Industrial Park (Phase I) in Buenavista II and Golden Gate Industrial Park (Phase II) in Panungyanan while the rest are found at Barangay Manggahan, Barangay San Francisco and along Governor’s Drive.
The master plan for General Trias is to achieve an agro-industrial and residential balance. Current developments include the construction of the General Trias Auditorium and Sports Complex at General Trias Memorial Elementary School Grounds in Barangay San Juan I, cementing of roads from Barangay Santiago to Governor’s Drive and road widening of Barangay Tejero to San Juan II, the building of General Trias Municipal Hall-Manggahan Annex and completion of a 2-storey Training Center Building at Barangay Pinagtipunan. Housing development is also on the upsurge with 45 subdivisions in the area like Maravilla, Bel Aldea, Metrosouth, Tierra Nevada, Metropolis Greens, Eagle Ridge, Pasadena Heights I, Stanford City and Governor Hills. The 20,000 square metre public market in between Barangay Corregidor and Sampalucan is said to be more or less worth Php 39,000,000.00. General Trias is considered one of the new frontiers of growth and development in the CALABARZON area as attested by the giant industrial subdivisions located in the town.

General Trias is politically subdivided into 33 barangays.
