The program called "Smarter Philippines" which was recently launched by the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) is anticipated to boost the growth of the country’s society and economy by maximizing the benefits of science and technology. This is in line with the Aquino government's inclusive growth across various segments.
The "Smarter Philippines" program is set to cover and develop five divisions by applying technology and innovation. These are: Addressing Pressing National Concerns, Countryside Development, Inclusive Growth, Improved Delivery of Government Services, and Applying Merging Technologies to Local Products.
The program is also subdivided into: Smarter Governance, Smarter People, Smarter High-Tech Industry, Smarter Computing, Smarter Small and Medium Enterprises, Smarter Agriculture, Smarter Environmental Healthcare, Energy, and Transport, Smarter Public Safety, and Smarter Cities.
DOST is also improving and developing ICT-dependent programs such as Project NOAH (Nationwide Operational Assessment of Hazards) for nationwide calamities and emergencies, iGovPhils which is a revolutionary integration of the administration’s ICT systems, and Smarter Cities, which is an initiative to create awareness that rural areas are also feasible business process outsourcing (BPO) hubs.
