The Philippines is among the lowest-ranked country in terms of infrastructure in Southeast Asia, according to the Asia Pacific Millennium Development Goal (MDG) Report for 2010 and 2011.

With the average rating for Southeast Asia in terms of the quality of infrastructure at 4.2, the Philippine infrastructure rating of 2.8 was only slightly better than the 2.6 rating for Vietnam
and the 2.5 rating for Indonesia.

For the rest of the Southeast Asian region, the highest infrastructure ratings were Singapore’s 6.7, Malaysia’s 5.6, Thailand’s 4.8, Brunei Darussalam’s 4.7, and Cambodia’s 3.1.

The global average stands at 3.8.

The MDG report said that for the Asia Pacific region to achieve its goals, it will require basic infrastructure, particularly better road transport, water supplies, sanitation, electricity, information technology, telecommunications and urban low-income housing.

The report is the result of a collaboration among the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UN ESCAP), the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), and the Asian Development Bank (ADB).

The development of infrastructure has led to economic development and poverty reduction, the report noted.

Infrastructure includes roads, railway system, power or energy, water supply, information and communication technology.

The study looked at the extent of road development in the region using the rating of zero, as the poorest development, to seven as the best.

In terms of electricity supply, the Philippines ranked fourth from the last with a mark of 4.2, just ahead of Cambodia, Vietnam and Indonesia. The Southeast Asian region’s average rating was 4.2, as against the 4.7 rating of East Asia.

"If you declare with your mouth, Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved."
