Smarter Philippines:the DOST’s Technology- based Inclusive Growth Program DOST Secretary Mario Montejo Launches Smarter Philippines Program in Davao City, Feb. 20, 2013 Smarter Philippines is the DOST’s technology-based inclusive growth program. It has 6 categories of national-level programs… …and two categories of geographically-based programs.

DOTC estimates that traffic congestion in Manila alone costs P140B. Losses include: - cost of fuel wasted on slow moving traffic; - lost productivity of workers stuck in traffic jams; and - Increased stress on vehicles running low on gear.

Smarter Traffic Management and Smarter Transportation Systems are increasingly viewed as key components of a larger “system of systems”—the Smarter City

The Smart City, or Smarter City, is a known brand and a magnet for foreignand domestic investments Asian smart-city investments to hit $260 billion in 2020: Zpryme Iain Morris - January 15, 2013 Investments in Asian ‘smart cities’ are set to grow from about $55.6 billion in 2013 to around $260 billion in 2020, according to research from Zpryme. Source: smart-city-investments-hit-260-billion-2020- zpryme China prepares for smart city construction boom China has reportedly approved 193 trial cities to develop into “smart cities” The smart city program, initiated last November, is part of the country's efforts to explore ways to foster a new type of urbanization. Smarter Cities can be the perfect “Living Labs” to scientifically apply DOST’s Smarter Philippines innovations, and thereby attract investments. a-smart-cities
