Baggao at a Glance
  

Established on November 27, 1896, Baggao, is one of the 28th municipalities of Cagayan. Baggao has a total land area of 99,060 hectares, 48 barangays, and a total population of 66,264. It is dependent on agriculture and forest resources.

Baggao has a high production in rice and corn, which is considered to be the major agricultural resources. The municipality is also widely known for its quality lumber for the finest and elegant furniture production, made from the famous lumber called “Narra”. Despite its geographic location as an interior municipality, access to quality education is evident. A private educational institution is present - the Saint Joseph College, offering a complete pre-school, elementary, secondary and college education. Baggao National Agricultural School is also present, providing vocational education.

Providing quality education is one of the top priorities of the local leadership. A bigger allocation is embarked in the LGU Annual Budget to subsidize teacher requirements and school facilities in the public education sector.

Cooperatives are also in place to support agriculture. The Sto. Domingo Multi-Purpose Cooperative, Inc. offers a variety of services to farmers. Services ranging from the grant of soft loans, grains trading, and the sale of consumer goods to supply of farm inputs. The presence of this cooperative is timely and essential to boost the growing economy of Baggao.

Telecommunication system, provided by SMART Telecoms is in full operations while information media the HOT FM Radio Station and EHM Cable TV serve as major link providing timely information to the public.

Strategically located, barangay San Jose now caters your needs for a Country Inn Motel, Dunkin Donuts, Bank, and Electronic Store.
