Michiko Enomoto, head of the APCTT, commended the Philippines for the valuable support it has provided to the UN agency.
To further enhance innovation, Enomoto said the APCTT is employing steps, such as capacity building of governments, developing the skills of people involved in the incubation programs and publication.
She said the APCTT supports capacity building to boost science and technology-innovation policies.
Enomoto said the APCTT also boosts the capabilities of the officers handling the incubation of technology by agencies to help them commercialize the technologies, inventions and innovations.
At the same time, the APCTT helps in the publication of research so it can distribute the knowledge, research and development policies in different areas.
Moreover, she praised the Philippines for being supportive to the APCTT and a major supplier of knowledge in the region.
For his part, Engineer Edgar Garcia, director of Tapi, said the cooperation between member-countries in the APCTT could benefit the Philippines as it can infuse the innovations in the technologies they recommended.
