What kind of innovation are you talking about?

No idea

It might have been like that for all projects, but I can't say anything

They should probably make medium-rise buildings for these relocation attempts, even out-of-city relocations
These concrete boxes only takes up alot of land and as you said, are tiny and in poor conditions most of the time.
Having residential relocation sites are actually a far better choice practically, as less farmland has to be converted.
Only if they can actually provide proper sanitation and electricity

P1T for 5.6M units means a unit cost of P179K! Didn't NHA said the estimated unit cost is P240K? LINK Why is PCUP's Ridon not informed?

Wala kasi utak talaga ang Pilipinas eh.... paano ba ma sosolve ang mga squatter...... para sustainable sa tingin ko dapat talaga...

unang una - national ID system......... para ma one time cleanup sino ba talaga ang squatter........ 2nd yung national ID system ang mag dedetermine ng city or municipal registration mo... ganyan sa mga ibang bansa aka belgium, germany, switzerland.......

Bulok talaga ang housing mentality ng Pinas..... itatapon mo sa kagubatan ang relocation area.... mali talaga yun alam na natin by experience kaya palitan na...........

Housing sa squater dapat iba sa housing ng PNP, AFP, Govt' employee.... gandahan yung sa gov't employee kasi me capability naman yan mag bayad.... yung sa squater na halos libre ang dapat bare minimum

daming kabulukan sa NHA kaya walang asenso dito eh

BOI investments rise 25% in first 4 months


MANILA, Philippines - Investments approved by the Board of Investments (BOI) likely soared 25 percent in the first four months this year as investors continue to position for the “golden age” of infrastructure in the country.


“What we have been noticing is the growth of investments over from small and medium enterprise which are innovation led. For instance, we recently registered a project (for the manufacture of) prosthetic legs and customized shoes for particular clients. We’ve also seen registration for garments, for instance a garments company supplying leading brands from Europe,” Rodolfo added.

Woohoo!

Seems like you will be getting your own Hong Kong!
I wonder if there will be any reclamation projects aswell

Stanchart bullish on PH economy
Philippine Daily Inquirer
4 hours ago
standard chartered

Quote:
British banking giant Standard Chartered expects the Philippines to be the fastest growing among Southeast Asia’s emerging markets this year, with economic growth seen firming up at 6.8 percent from 6.6 percent last year.

This is seen to make the Philippines the fastest-growing Asean-6 (a bloc that also includes Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam and Malaysia) market for the second consecutive year, according to an April 20 research note written by economists Chidu Narayanan and Divya Devesh.

“Strong domestic demand, increasing infrastructure investment and steady services-sector growth will remain the primary growth drivers, in our view,” the research said. Read more

BSP hikes FDI projection to $8 B this year
WASHINGTON – The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) said hard investments
Quote:
would continue to pour into the Philippines as it now expects foreign direct investment (FDI) to reach a record high of $8 billion this year with investors optimistic on the growth potential of the Philippines.

BSP Governor Amando Tetangco Jr. said in an interview with The STAR

the revised FDI projection this year is higher than the previous forecast of $7 billion as the government has committed to ramp up infrastructure spending.

“Last year we had an FDI of $7.9 billion and that was actually a figure that exceeded not only the 2016 projection but also the 2017. So we have revised the 2017 projection wherein we are putting the FDI number for this year to $8 billion. We are just penciling in a $100 million increase which I think is quite conservative,” he said.

Net FDI zoomed 40 percent to a new record level of $7.9 billion last year, exceeding the full-year target of $6.7 billion from $5.64 billion in 2015 amid the normalization of interest rates in the US as well as the decision of the United Kingdom to leave the European Union more popularly known as ‘Brexit.’

Tetangco said the Philippines continue to see high level of interest among foreign investors who want to invest in manufacturing as well as knowldge-based services.

Latest data from the central bank showed FDI inflows booked a double-digit growth of 13.2 percent to $685 million in January from $605 million in the same month last year as investors remained optimistic on the growth potential of the Philippines.

Sobrang off ng projection. Last year, 6.7billion usd ang forecast pero 7.9 billion usd ang FDI inflow. This year, 8 billion usd lang ang target. Bale 100 million usd lang ang kailangang itaas para ma-hit ang projection.

Kahit sinabi pa mismo ni tetangco na conservative estimate, parang ang baba pa din diba?

SBMA bares plan to build P140-billion industrial zone in Subic Freeport
By Catherine Pillas - APRIL 20, 2017

Quote:
The Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) is charting an ambitious plan to develop an industrial zone as part of a broader P140-billion development project in the area.

Speaking at the sidelines of the Dutertenomics forum held at the Conrad Hotel in Pasay, SBMA Chairman Martin Diño said there are plans for a major industrial zone in an area near the Hanjin Heavy Industries and Construction Philippines in Subic Freeport zone.

There’s an area we’d like to convert into another Subic development. It’ll create another 150,000 jobs, with, say some 1,500 locators. In the master plan we’re building for Subic, we want to have roads and access to it,” Diño said, referring to his P140- billion proposed project, dubbed as the Greater Subic Bay Freeport Multimodal Transport, Access and Logistics Support Project.

The project covers four components, aside from the new industrial zone: 1) The creation of two new container terminals in the Port of Subic to add another 600,000 TEU capacity to the existing two terminals and further development of the Naval Supply Depot Compound and Bulk Cargo Port facilities; 2) Construction of a bypass road linking the seaport terminals in the Freeport to the SCTEX including road expansion; 3) Construction of a multimodal elevated expressway from Subic Bay to the Port of Manila; and 4) Upgrading of the Subic airport.
