Philippines targets boost in Global Innovation Index ranking by 2028

President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. has set his sights on improving the Philippines’ position in the World Intellectual Property Organization’s Global Innovation Index (GII) by the end of his term in 2028. The nation slipped to 59th in 2022 from 51st the prior year. Marcos highlighted initiatives such as the National Innovation Agenda and Strategy Document 2023-2032 and the Department of Science and Technology’s Balik Scientist Program to bolster the country’s innovation drive. He envisions a “Filipinnovation” renaissance to address contemporary challenges. IPOPHL Director General Rowel Barba is optimistic that newly enacted innovation laws and projects like the Knowledge, Innovation, Science, and Technology (KIST) Park will significantly enhance the Philippines’ innovation ecosystem and improve its GII ranking.
