the location of Luzon which is near China could be exploited. you can hear the roosters of Taiwan crowing

the problem with VisMin is that, I guess they have inferiority complex and always claim to be victims of imperial manila as if powers have not been devolved for more than 20 years

Well you can't blame VisMin people for complaining. Development have mostly been concentrated on Manila.

Also, 50% of Filipinos are from Luzon since everyone is migrating there. The other half are more spread out across 2/3rds of the total land of the Philippines...



Not a very equitable spread.

Northern Luzon was a trading hub between Malay Archipelago and Japan, restoring that would be wonderful.

Luzon needs Mindanao ALOT. Typhoons often passes through Luzon which periodically destroys our agricultural output there. In contrast, Mindanao doesn't have as much typhoons passing there that's why Mindanao alongside Borneo is called "The land beneath the wind" because storms bypass the area. It's also the reason why Mindanao is called the "Breadbasket of the Philippines". Food prices will spike up if Luzon separates from Mindanao and Visayas. Like it or not, we need each other.

Also, for Luzon to be the trade hub between the Malay archipelago and Japan, shipping that originates from Malacca, Sumatra and Java should mostly pass through Brunei before going to Palawan and eventually call port at Luzon...

This is not the case.



In fact it's the opposite. Shipping tends to pass through the Java sea before turning up north into the
Makassar Strait, then passing the Celebes Sea eventually going through the Sulu archipelago.

As you can see, ships coast southern and then eastern Borneo before reaching the Visayas, instead of going to Brunei and coasting Palawan before reaching Luzon.


You can also observe that ships going from Peninsular Malaysia to Japan or China simply pass through the South China Sea, coast through Mainland Southeast Asia or avoid the Philippines altogether...



However, you can observe that what feeds maritime traffic into Luzon isn't coming from Brunei or the South China sea but rather from Mindanao and the Visayas, which funnels shiping coming from Java, passing through Southeast Borneo or the Strait of Makassar.

If Luzon wants to be the export and transhipment hub between the Malay archipelago and Japan, it should embrace the Visayas and Mindanao where most of it's trade and traffic originates from.

Here's a video showing how shipping passes through the Mindanao and Visayas and not, going directly to Luzon.

Here's a pic of maritime traffic from space.

I would like all of southeast asia reunified under the flag of garuda with a democratic government, uniform civil code, polygamy outlawed, and english as one of the official languages with a focus on science.


Paganism forever!
