MUNICIPALITY OF BIEN UNIDO

Trinidad were united into one barangay and was given the name of Bien Unido, a spanish word which means “well united”. In order to hasten its economic, social, cultural and political upliftments the people of Barangay Bien Unido aspired for independence and wanted to become a municipality.
This long time dream which started in 1965 became a reality when in 1981 it was approved by Batasang Pambansa Blg. 93 through the efforts of then Assemblyman Bartolomeo Cabangbang and Eutiquio Cimafranca.
The principal industries of this town are fishing, farming and mat-weaving. Fish is sold to Cebu and mats are sold to Mindanao, Leyte and also Cebu.
