According to the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA), the replication of the Regional Geographic Information Network (RGIN) Geoportal Project in pilot Regions 1, 6, 8, 9, 12, and 13 will help improve research and development and create evidence-based policies in the country. Socioeconomic Planning Secretary Karl Kendrick Chua emphasized the importance of digital transformation within the government to strengthen policymaking and improve public service delivery. With the RGIN Geoportal, they will be able to collect and analyze large amounts of data in various domains and bridge information gaps, improving  efficiency, effectiveness, and comparative advantage. NEDA’s Updated Philippine Development Plan 2017-2022 recognizes the significance of Science, Technology, and Innovation (STI) as one of the main drivers of increased growth potential, which can realize  the Ambisyon Natin 2040 vision where no one is living in extreme poverty.
