    well I need more words, as your question can't be answered,...you are actually wrong,

    the PI was 25 years ago way ahead of the South East Asian countries and managed to fall back faster than the speed of light after "people got power". This gap gets bigger almost daily, it is the total opposite to catching up.

    They lack discipline and prefer to do things later than right now. Everybodys hands are in the cookie jar and things can't get done. Look at the South Koreans, they take extreme pride in their country and thats why it's growing especially with Kia and Hyundai. Most Filipinos I meet desire to get the hell out of the Philippines rather than make it a better place to live. Please don't get me wrong, I love the Filipino people and their culture, but most Filipinos talk down about their country. The only time I hear a Filipino say good things about the Philippines is when there are fiestas during the holidays or Pacquiao is fighting. Sorry I can't talk about the Philippines 3 words or less.

    Catch up?? They slide further behind by the day.

    They'e even resorted to importing rice, the staple of the their diet, from Thailand. With a VERY fertile population that's exploding and not even enough rice to feed, one can see the writing is on the wall
