Mario Montejo’s Keynote Speech Smarter Philippines Launch Through science and technology, we aim to have every Filipino feel the fruits of the economic advances we enjoy today. We wish for no one to be left behind. This is what inclusive growth is all about, and this is the essence of ―Smarter Philippines.‖ The ―Smarter Philippines‖ Program is a fully integrated plan professionally managed by the best and brightest technocrats and scientists of the DOST. Within the grand plan are several components -- and they include: ―A Smarter Government‖, ―A Smarter People‖, ―A Smarter Economy‖, ―Smarter Mobility‖, ―Smarter Environment‖, ―Smarter Living‖ and ―Smarter Cities‖. With all these components working in harmony, we expect a highly competitive Philippines to emerge….. one where everyone, regardless of economic class or location, enjoys equal opportunities… where all enjoy a superior quality of life akin to the great industrialized countries of Europe.‖ -Sec. Mario Montejo

History shows that Science, Technology and Innovation have played a key role in economic growth, validating the technology-based growth model For most of recorded history, economic growth was flat, <0.2%GDP growth/year. History reveals a direct correlation between advances in Science, Technology and Innovation and economic development, as measured by increases in per capita GDP and population growth. Today’s political and economic scientists have made great progress in distilling how successful countries have applied science, technology and innovation to accelerate economic growth and reduce poverty into “smart” technology-based development frameworks.

Innovation: Engine of Rapid Growth for the Philippine Economy ―Already, we have seen the fruits of betting such a large sum on the creativity of the Filipino.‖ ―Innovation is the engine of any modern economy; and one look around the Philippines tells us that we have the natural inventiveness to be one of the world leaders in this regard. What had been lacking in the past, however, was support. This is precisely why our administration has focused on giving our people the necessary resources and opportunities to truly exercise their creativity in advancing their respective fields and industries. Since we believe that this is the way to further accelerate the growth of our economy—which, as you have probably heard, grew by 7.8 percent in the first quarter of 2013, making us the fastest growing economy in Asia—we have nearly doubled the budget of the Department of Science and Technology since coming into office, from 5.2 billion in 2010 to 9.9 billion in 2013, obviously without wasting taxes except for the sin products. And already, we have seen the fruits of betting such a large sum on the creativity of the Filipino.‖ -Pres. Aquino, speech at DOST Compound, May 13, 2013

Storm surge hazard maps to identify high risk areas and reduce vulnerability to storm surge Leyte Bohol storm surge hazard map Eastern Samar Iloilo ―Regarding disaster preparedness: Our goal to develop mechanisms to protect our people from natural calamities: we have also achieved. Among these are the effective services brought about by the joint forces of the Geohazard Mapping and Assessment Program and Project NOAH of the DOST. This past year, we completed a multihazard mapping of the 28 most vulnerable locations in the country. A similar endeavor for the Greater Metro Manila Area will be completed by 2014… Not only have these maps increased in number, they are also more detailed and refined, which is why we will be able to more accurately identify high risk areas.‖ -Pres. Aquino, 2013 SONA

High Performance Computing & Big Data Analytics will improve weather forecasting and flood & storm surge prediction EXPECTED OUTCOMES: IBM Corp. donated a 4,096 core Blue Gene/P super computer to DOST. • Improved weather forecasting • NOAH‘s weather forecast extended from 6 hours to 7 days • Larger area coverage to monitor weather disturbances forming out at sea • Faster computing time will result in hourly 7-day forecasts • Improved flood prediction and storm surge prediction The NOAH-Wise Project: Weather Information Integration for System Enhancement

But simply distributing high-tech equipment and new technology is not enough. We also need to train the endusers of this equipment in understanding, using, and disseminating the information gained. When the weather is bad, they no longer rely solely on wind speed for their forecasts; they can also predict the volume of rainfall, and they can provide the correct and timely warnings so our communities can prepare accordingly. - President Aquino SONA 2013 Project NOAH Website.
