General Information
Banga is situated at the northwest of the province of South Cotabato. The town derived its name from a palm tree known to the natives of the place as " Buanga" which during the pre-settlement time, predominantly grew in the area.


It started as a Settlement District of the Allah Valley Project of the National Land Settlement Administration (NLSA) on March 4, 1941 with Gen. Paulino Santos as the General Manager. On September 11, 1953 by way of Presidential Proclamation No. 612 of the then President Elpidio Quirino, it was emancipated as a barrio of Koronadal and became an independent municipal entity.


At present, Banga is linked by a concrete national highway road from Gen. Santos City in the east and Cotabato City in the west. The town is known for its spacious town plaza, its public market is situated in the heart of the town and ideally zonified. Water for households and commercial use is abundant and the best source to it is Banga River which narrowly dissects the municipality.


The Municipal Government presently operates in accordance with its slogan: "Cooperative Efforts Towards Peace and Progress" and its targeting to rapidly lift its economy to a highest level towards the new Millenium.


Natural Resources:
Banga has a vast source of raw materials such as bamboo, rattan, nito and fruits
