Imus is the de jure capital city of the province of Cavite in the Philippines. Located 20 kilometres (12 mi) south of Metro Manila, Imus is an attractive location for both real estate property seekers and investors looking for a home or to do business near Metro Manila.
Imus serves as a favorable site for industrial establishments such as the 200-hectare (490-acre) Imus Informal Industrial Estate and Anabu Hills Industrial Estate. The Imus Commercial/Business District along Nueño Avenue (also called Imus Boulevard) is the center of commerce in the city. The Imus Public Market (Pamilihang Bayan ng Imus) is the hub of trade in the district. Commercial, industrial and manufacturing industries owned by Taiwanese, Japanese and Filipino investors can also be found in the 805-stall market.
Imus (along its parent province) had continuously grown its major shopping malls and shopping centres.
Several subdivisions and mass housing projects and the establishment of factories and small-scale industries in many of its barangays have resulted in a movement of population into the city.
