Alabang is a barangay in the Muntinlupa City, Philippines. At one time the area was a farming district, and has since grown from a village to a commercial center, including the Alabang Commercial Center and Filinvest Corporate City Now (Filinvest City). It is also near the Madrigal Business Park. It is 8.064 square kilometers.[1] A large portion of Ayala Alabang came from Barangay Alabang.[citation needed]

Economy[edit]
