This profession is the next big thing in PH

A bill that seeks to address the lack of scientists in the country is among the top priorities of the Senate committee on science and technology.

According to Sen. Paulo Benigno “Bam” Aquino, proponent of the Balik Scientist Bill, the Philippines needs 19,000 more scientists to boost the country’s research and development projects.

“Paano tayo makakasabay sa ibang bansa pagdating sa research at development kung kulang tayo ng 19,000 scientists? (How can we keep up with other countries when it comes to research development if we’re short with 19,000 scientists?)” Kicker Daily quoted Aquino as saying.

The bill stated that the Philippines currently has 189 scientists per million, which is significantly lower than United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization’s 380 scientists for every million-population standard.

Aquino said the lack of scientists in the country is caused by the migration of Filipino scientists to seek better opportunities.

The Balik Scientist Bill seeks to improve financial benefits and incentives for researchers that could encourage them to return to the country.
