Fax: +011-604-941-9022 (FAX line)
We are part of the NPO SBO intended to be contracted with our mandate to consult and explore all avenues available for implementation of biotechnologies and other related high technologies towards industrial growth and human development and of natural resources in the developing world including Soviet-bloc countries, including, West Asia, C. Asia, the Far East, SE Asia, and beyond to Cuba, Latin America and in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA).
-- We are aiming in the long-term to develop a higher technological landscape with biotech in tow even for underdeveloped countries especially with the original interest in the Asia-Pacific from the developed world's perspectives in North America, Australia and Western Europe and parts of Asia including Japan, the Middle East where the advancement of biotechnology exists and is very possible.
-- INC aims to build on an upper management regulatory policy with a resolution to carry out the option in higher technology and biotech, in particular, to play a future role to help build a greener economy with bioresource renewability and sustainability, to further the profitability of its developing economy in areas such as foods in nutrition, biopharmaceuticals, in the future in the medical or healthcare fields biomedical equipment, biofuels and cost-effective biomaterials including bioplastics (e.g. PLA), and other fine specialty chemicals or materials (e.g. IBPN from methane (g) or plant fibre like pulp), upgrading crops through low-level mutagenesis and protoplasmic fusion and marker-assisted selection with breeding (e.g.s. forages, grains, pulses, vegetables, shrubs and tree crops with out moratorium on GMO technology using non-GMO alternatives as with dsRNA/iRNA and protoplasmic fusion/low-level mutagenesis) and livestock through molecular breeding with in vitro reproductive techniques.
-- The national agenda in the Philippine republic, for development with the role technology plays through widespread reform is geared towards improving: (1) socio-economic factors or indicators for growth with knowledge-based industries, (2) technology transfer and (3) domestic & foreign investment towards furthering initiatives for development using financing from overseas banks and foreign aid, wishing to further Filipino development. There is a need to address: (1) the need for progress towards greater national awareness, loyalty and national reintegration, (2) civil society and its peace and law & order situation, (3) interventive authoritative rule & discipline for its corrective values, (4) effective legal enforcement of ethical practices and values towards the labour code, and other regulatory practices, (5) like anti-graft corruption legislation with civil society and government, (6) also within the family's social structure or unit in bylaw socio-ethics, and the need for cooperativity between groups, (7) including synergy between communities and their unique perspective, (8) the need for law to maintain and even further enhance human resource competencies through training resultin in eventual human resource upgrading and (9) better awareness through increased acculturation with the state-of-affairs of foreign lands and between various emigre groups abroad, in order to guard against further significant 'diaspora' which has apparently taken hold already in the Philippine islands and eventually the mass migration or "brain drain" of locals.
-- The principle of technology represents tools that require innovation, technological capacity and resource mobilization and acquisition and its regulation. We believe that adaptation and our resolve can eventually result in positive outcomes when the right technological applications are in place together with their regulatory use.
-- In examples, like the Philippines islands, high-technology initiatives already exist but bridging the gap between political stability, good governance, still lingering poorly-run educational institutions of higher learning (we have great faith in government resulting in considerable or significant and meaningful infrastructural upgrading of facilities and services locally for the country), a well-run civil society, a good private sector-run business climate and in particular problems of urban blight with mass overpopulation such as wide pockets of poverty, disease, illiteracy and widely-occurring poorer infrastructure (still existent in the Philippines today), and opting for the role of high technology in industry with greater investment by big business, from government and the local private sector are ongoing dealing with advancing technology before these issues and its further continued investment becomes a clear option towards development.
-- The bio-industries issues including bioremediation, bioenergy regeneration and feeds mfging are co-dependent at this time on energy from fossil fuels. There are secondary outputs such as biogas and energy-rich sludge from municipal wastes. The issues in the 'Philippine Theatre' with oil exploitation found within their exclusive 200 naut. mi. EZ (economic zone) is for conserved domestic use as a policy and reserved for fair trade mfging vs. a policy of outright energy export for the benefit of trading partners. On the otherhand there is a benefit to uphold at home domestic mfging for industry use and its profit.
SKYEVIEW: The ETC Group, (there are other examples of non-Governmental-related organizations, FAO, Rome Italy and the BIO) received recognition for their leader's prognostication and foresight towards the advancement of breakthroughs mentioned in the preceding in areas of science, law, sociology, international aid, economics and trade, genetic engineering with biotechnology, emerging nanotechnology including treatment in medicine, geoengineering and natural resource exploration and exploitation and neurosciences and genomics.
SKYEVIEW: From Africa is a new study of 4 (Ghana, Ethiopia, Rwanda and Democratic Republic of Congo) of the 8 fastest growing economies among the top ten of 2011 world-wide accounted for their growth, in part, from agriculture including cash crops and other agricultural commodities. Increasing democratization and the stability it brings has brought with it reversal of diaspora of young, skilled professionals and much needed investment back to their countries. Further policy changes including key commodity diversification and on commodities in demand internationally and for rising commodity prices and need for the practice of entrepreneurship, key to operating business and creating jobs and spread of business, were mentioned. Its possible to think that the "bread basket" of SSA is going to become more of a reality for overseas destinations including their current relations with other foreign countries (e. g. the emigre Chinese population).
SKYEVIEW: The recent reports out of the Philippines and any sign of integration by government action of biotechnology indicates initiatives and organizations from government first of all and perhaps industry will follow. The Heads of State outlined their views regards "nation building" and the role of "integration of technology" as a matter of "national welfare" as biotechnology would serve the predominant sector of the economy, agriculture and food; they commented that biotechnology has increased by leaps and bounds in the populace in terms of awareness due largely by the media's efforts to inform the public of such technologies; also, they require that all technologies be environmentally and consumer safe with the use of Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) responsibly.
SKYEVIEW: The labour migration in the Philippines with recent brain drains or 'diaspora' has shown that retention of skilled, high quality labour can make a significant change in economic outlook or is a premium economic gain. Other contributing factors such as trade including energy and natural resources, overseas BPO investing in the country domestically, surge in foreign investment and strong diplomatic ties of a regional/localized 'geopolitical' nature or bloc are also weighed in but the former is touted as the strongest of factors.
SKYEVIEW: In more rural AUSTRALIA, the developed country that it is, and developing countries like the Philippines, developmental theory "has taken a turn" in furthering small farm/mixed farming in the agricultural sector and their industries. Large multi-nationals are proposing fielding themselves as agents for agricultural "positive encroachment" and other positive input/output influences (e. g. s. energy, mechanization, expertise, importation with trade). These are the perscribe effects on the national economy: (1) jobs may be lost, (2) there may be outstanding social issues of what is claimed, that is, displacement towards greater industrialization in the agri field sector, upward bouyancy in the economy including price indices, profitability, stronger demand and improved competitiveness and product quality. The Philippine Islands will be used as one example, possibly, for development. The Philippines Department of Science and Technology (DOST) is now intensively involved in integrating biotechnology in Philippine agriculture which will help jumpstart this new "Tiger Economy".
SKYEVIEW: With growing oil being discovered off the west in the South China Sea which the Philippines is claiming within their 200 nautical mi. limit economic zone of interest there is a question asked as to basis in the economy that it takes to absorb the wealth (i. e. royalties in payment from oil exploration, refining and distribution outlet cos.) which will answer first of all to the domestic demand for energy by the burgeoning population for electricity, transportation and tourism (i. e. aviation, sea vessels, rail, and semi-trailer freight). What is the banking system? A Saudi Arabian model is suggested with aegis of the Canadian Central Bank, exemplary of a very traditionally strong banking system, that has help absorb profits, create asset and equity, leverage stock investments in industry in the corporate world, help control the consumer price index (CPI), and monitor economic growth or performance and encourage safe and high interest investment from overseas. It is believed that a strong banking system will provide the support to build a stronger, stable economy with appreciable GNP growth >5% per annum. The likely clients of this new oil wealth will be the growing, vibrant industrialization and remarkable capitalization of the sub-continent Indian economy and funded perhaps by their state-run oil multi-national, Oil India Ltd. (OIL), with an alternative scenario involving BP Shell, a v. large multi-national running exploration, oil extraction in the Philippine South China Sea for the Philippines in armistice between the two shared countries using the projected oil wealth.
SKYEVIEW: The recent developments here in Canada of initiatives to start a new Canadian-Russian relations and exchange of technology, training and trade to help develop the rural Russian federation including the exchange of resource commodities (e. g. liquified natural gas (LNG), oil, forestry products, potash). Banking and financial services to business enterprises could be used to set up investment opportunities from overseas, loans, mortgages and other financial services with Canadian banks to help control money supply and inflation or market prices or help fix prices in a more regulation economy and for economic stimulus and exchange, regulate trading on the stock exchange, counter money laundering and its activity in the black market. There is growing trend in urban areas to expand and satellite in urban centres and increase capacity, quota and level of training that is adaptive to industry needs in Canada also proposed for Soviet Russia especially with business programs to address the entrepreneurial needs of the market place. This will be a big precipitator of business activity and economic development which is now true in the African continent. Jobs from industry creation of commercial activity will provide real financial and professional opportunities for the population. Alternative fuels such as bioethanol will eventually serve the shortfall in the rural market of Russia including its ends in transportation (e. g. efficient long-haul, Mag-Lev lines are proposed) and rural infrastructure (i. e. roads, bridges, utilities, including extensive hydro dams in addition to alternative "green" bioenergy which will assure Russian energy self-sufficiency, communications, airports). The latter can be drawn from Canadian expertise used successfully in that country. It should be mentioned lastly that good governance that does not corrupt civil society by compromise with outside criminal elements, that is liberal and progressive in regulation and legislation of society, government and business, but also has regulatory and even authoritarian elements for a conservative but uncorrupted, meritorious society should be used nationally and locally. Democratic systems of representation and rule by majority that is answerable and dynamic is called for.
SKYEVIEW: The recent revelations of government mismanagement due to graft and corruption broke out into scandal with strong reprimand from the country's President Benigno Aquino due to misallocation of funds used to appropriate and manage the agri-sector in industry. If the good governance cannot be trusted to funnel funds to the small farmers and agri-business sector then a more sophisticated mechanism needs to be put in place with better checks and balances. The private sector needs to be drawn in including engineering consultants and contractors, business consultants, big business and small business commercial concerns to do business with the small farmer in the agri-sector and entrepreneurship taught in schools in order the generate a young generation of professional managerial class entrepreneurs and for all parties to likewise compete on a competitive basis together with government oversight, including the legal profession and law courts, then safeguards can be put in place for the system to work.
SKYEVIEW: Ferrari and Tata Motors of India's advances to develop and mass manufacture the first prototype pedicab-a-van commuter vehicle for use around the islands versus other bidders for similar contracts with the Philippine government including local reports from Dumaguete City in Silliman University's Engineering Faculty to help partner with American-European interests and Chinese financiers (also Scottish and German, by reports) helping further shape the futures for infrastructural engineering and design of transportation in the Negros Island Region (NIR). There are also reports here in Canada and back in Dumaguete City of Negros island that certain southern European interests would immigrate and take up or assume responsibilities and other business operational duties together with investors in hand to set up model store enterprises in support of American investments near the Kabangkalan, Negros Occidental to flagging the socio-economic and labour balance implied by such a move regards the job creation as a nexus with locals from investors, labour code violations or enactments and the need for further upgrading in the way of progressive training regards the moving in of the Concept Mini Car and Mini SUV industry.
SKYEVIEW: The likelihood that the MH 370 (Malaysian Airlines) flight disaster was terrorist triggered as most US analyzers suspect possibly with connections to 'Iranians' who got on board with falsified European passports brings us to larger issues that have been pointed out to the general public about general muslim militant feelings vis-a-vis the ethnic Chinese in the region including in mainland China. With liberalization in China and with their imposition of spheres of influence over the entire region it is up for speculation where terrorism will lurk amongst militants including their claims on sharing the so-called 'proven' oil wealth in the surrounding region (viz. S. China Sea). In the Philippines, a bona fide claimant to oil reserves off its coasts, according to rule of law, the domestic situation does not bode well given 'pork barrel' scandals, past and present, in the Congress and can lead to widespread distrust and disruption of free democratic rule in the country unless the government steps in, and with help from super States to help arbiter regional disputes of peace and order over sovereignty, trade and other related issues as with Japan, the Americans (e.g. in the Philippines) and the Russians (e.g. Indo-China/China). Conspiracy involvements of separatists or militants is up for speculation at this time but there are positive reports given of Al Qaeda, the same group commandeered by the late Osama bin Laden with a possible bombing/hijacking speculated with the plane.
SKYEVIEW: There are five more matters to consider that takes us further down the story of MH 370 (Malaysian Airlines): 1) a reported sighted tail piece of the fuselage (amongst three sighted pieces) of an aircraft part near where the aircraft was supposedly downed where it lost contact with radar over the S. China Sea off the eastern coast of Malaysia and near where two oil slicks consistent with the plane's downed Boeing 777 fuselage similarly would be found, 2) the claim of transponder signals of a mechanical nature or status of the plane caught by 'tracking' satellite were just that may not have been accompanied by identification codes staking claims aircraft veered to the West and then proceeded North or South from the Straits of Malacca 5 hours after 'tracking', 3) an account of a terrorist involved with a shoe possibly on board loaded with explosives which may have been used to blow something up on board whatever the scenario, 4) suicide on the part of the hijackers and/or pilots as a of motive for downing the aircraft and 5) finally of course the need for Malaysian military cooperative intelligence to be more open with their Chinese counterparts in order for further developments on this case. (Advice to those seeking desparately for possible news on more on the same on the possible downing of MH 370 (Malaysian Airlines) is available from Huffington Post.com on the Internet and The Province, locally in that tabloid newspaper in British Columbia CANADA.) As a follow-up on the news, fuselage parts have mysteriously washed up on the shores of Reunion Island far in the western Indian Ocean identified by French authorities as claimed earlier by Malaysian authorities based on markings on the plane parts.
SKYEVIEW: Regards the "pedi-power movement" is the question of investor confidence at the tail-end of vehicular car rental or ownership especially with outside investors (e. g. non-locals, foreign nationals, expatriate permanent residents) possessing hard currency (USD$ or CAD$). It is estimated that a chassised vehicle at 1/3 to the conventional car would require an initial investment of USD$35,000 and thus with 10 investors about USD$10,000 total initial layout including licensing fees and taxes. There will have to be bidding system for licensing at a regulated surcharge fee. The new planned rail transport system for freight in the province will consist of laying new track and use of German-built locomotives to service Sugarlandia and service local freight up and down the island with containerized vessels from local designed and manufactured trucks (buses are currently fabricated locally on the island) serviced from containerized ports such as those in Dumaguete City, Bais/Tanjay, Silay/Bacolod.
SKYEVIEW: The Dual Design Strategy for the tropics/subtropics are for use in the summer months of the dry season are the open tent model of C-car cabs or the monsoon/colder months of the closed, fully housed C-car cabs with the ff. advantages, that are, better mileage and ambiance in hot weather for the former and better safety from collision, weatherproofing, interior control and greater added value to profitability. Examples of countries that could field this schema of design vehicles are Mainland China (Peoples Republic), ROC (Taiwan) and the Philippines. It is believed that this can also be applied to commuter vehicles similarly in temperate or cold climate/summer countries. We have to mention here the cross-over designs that are possible with any given vehicles for fuel savings year round.
SKYEVIEW: The budgetary constraints of $0.5B annual operations is deemed not affordable by the fiscal federal budget allotted to the Negros Island Region (NIR - Region XVIII) in the Philippine Islands. We can argue this both ways - there is no doubt the need for continued administrative overhead and governance including amongst others enhancing and maintaining infrastructure and the peace and order situation. On the otherhand, the NIR may have a lower goal for itself of "simply rebranding" the province as a whole in order to bring about better cooperativity and collaboration with sharing of resources, an important aid for the major money earner of tourism, as a major industry of the province. One other argument to save the: "keep the NIR movement alive" in the island is to bring about grassroots business enterprise stimulation amongst enterpreneurs to bring in more government revenue to coffers such as the dairy industry earmarked as a sound product investment in terms of nutritional value and marketability amongst the locals in the Dumaguete area, as an example. One pilot project being proposed is for Guihulngan for dairy creamery operations to produce 120,000 liters / yr output to serve the growing and future metro Bais / Tanjay area for dairy such as milk, creme, butter and yoghurt. Another previously mentioned project in Bais / Tanjay proper is for seagrass and feed pellet manufacturing (including future non-GMO feed and energy/ GMO drug research) and expansion around Tanjay in coop rural area goataries for export of European-grade cheese-making.
SKYEVIEW: Can social media from your computer, ipad or other PDA be used for advertising further the: "seagrass movement"? There are new T. V. programming trends that can be used similarly "interactively" with Youtube.com that combines natural history, documentary television of tourism and contemporary culture, exploring the naturalistic world exploring the world of wildlife, anthropology & cultural heritage and world-wide country development: viz. socio-economics, geo-political, socio-cultural history, foreign-military relations and treaties etc., CCTV (KCTS 9 Vancouver B. C. CANADA) is one such successful product now airing for the benefit of multi-cultural group in the Pacific Northwest. The "seagrass movement" is unique in its message to this type of programming surrounding issues of technological development and the challenges along with it, ethical issues around the applications of biotechnological studies with marine plant spp. and livestock [cf. Dolly the first cloned sheep, and the Enviropig(R)] and the modern socio-economic changes it will bring to the local agri-food industries due to biotech diversification, jobs from semi-labour-intensive and capital intensive (inputs, infrastructure and energy) and coop movements involving shared resources, profit-sharing, and outstanding issue of competitiveness, product quality, adaptability to innovation and diversification.
SKYEVIEW: The new world order according to the diplomatic Russian point of view is that of a balance of power of cooperation and development across different zones or regions the world over not militarism. To illustrate this a possible alliance across the Philippine Western Sea also known as the South China Sea with the Spratleys in dispute as a strategic area and with potential energy oil wealth for the region and beyond including the Philippine nation's push as the new miracle "Tiger Economy" of SE Asia is that of ties between Russia, China, India and Vietnam amidst the American viewpoint of peace or security measures strategically required to adopt a stance between the Indian Ocean and the South China Sea and thus plans to engage the Indonesian archipelagic national strategy in terms of development pushes in addition to courting Filipino participation in military tactical operations or simulated defensive war games in that part of the world. Hoping that these new alliances will serve the purpose of building stability in this part of the world. Politics and the rest that follows with diplomacy and negotiation, etc. will be the substance of relations. But to ward off confrontations or potential threats the U. S. would opt for military precautionary per adventure in its world-wide push to secure peace and order.
SKYEVIEW: The deterent to confrontation in the S. China Sea between China and the Philippines, sides drawn with the superpowers of Russia and its allies, China, India and Vietnam across the way and the Philippines, the U.S. and Indonesia as a military defensive deterent is the nuclear ticket originating from the Kamchatka peninsular and Russia's negotiable stance with its ally China. All else follows that oil exploration rights will be respected by all sides and the shelf will be absolute demarcation for oil production by Filipino concerns and used to trade overseas in the region and world-wide and fuel local industries nation-wide as economic leverage with the Chinese vis-a-vis trade and manufacturing towards sustained "Tiger" economic growth standards striking a balance between hydro, geothermal, solar, wind and biomass-based as green forms of energy as an advantage for a cleaner environment as opposed to escalating the use of fossil-based fuels. 'Pangulo' Duterte has indicated a consistency or compatability that lends his administration's approval to this by his earlier pronouncements in calling Russian President Vladimir Putin a 'hero' and indicated apparent distancing himself from joint military responsibilities over the Philippines military ally, the U.S.
SKYEVIEW: Energy demand will grow in bioethanol (and others like isobutanol and isopentenol) from farm food waste byproducts (e. g. soyabean and wheat straw and corn stover) as options for energy in the Western provinces of Canada and countries of C. Asia we predict. There will be a need to assure further banking investments from Great Britain and Canada in C. Asia including allies the U.S. and Europe with oversite from NATO/U.N. with hopeful interest groups taking action in N. America over biofuel usage over conventional energy sources continuing the dialogue of climate change and fossil fuel greenhouse gas emissions and moves against oil pipelines draining precious reserves from Atlantic Canada and Alaska to the Gulf of Mexico and now Alberta and B.C. Elizabeth May of the Green Party of Canada is currently facing issues against installing cross country oil pipelines and may opt for use of green biofuels in the West, at least, in future as more green technologies are placed 'on the front burner'. Her ticket may be seen as more extreme compared to the Rt. Hon. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's stance by establishing carbon taxations here and abroad. The new President-elect Donald Trump might turn a new face on his energy economic policy with the pipeline affair here in Canada if new former oversight can be found from Pres. Barrack Obama's initiatives for greening energy to make the U.S. more energy self-sufficient and secure. It should be commented that "no pipelines" means "yes" to tanker trucks cross-country. Also the "dicey" security issue to biowarfare scenarios in N. America is unlikely affecting food supplies in addition to dependency on energy biofuel production from feedstock due to the matter of isolation of resistant varieties of staples grains such as the world-wide wheat crop where resistance of insect varieties spontaneously arising in nature now and again to natural defenses built up in the crop variety is closely monitored and developed.
SKYEVIEW: Demand for energy and food will grow in the U.S. in terms of shifting sourcing supply from places like Mexico, California and Canada amidst the growing trend for growing and buying local due to supply logistics (e. g. transportation and handling) and going organic which albeit is more expensive but more sustainable. There are plans to source the African continent for food and horticultural crops to transported by sea and air such as fruits, roots crops, grains and other staples, produce (i. e. vegetables) meat, flowers (e. g. roses, tulips, carnations), as examples, as the changing scenarios around the world grow from food alone to sourcing farm or agri-waste for bioenergy production such as the NexGen hi-density alcohols such as grain straw or stover in places like China, C. Asia, Russia, Canada (including Western Canada), the U.S.A., Brazil, India, and Australia. A world-wide enterprise no doubt that will spell the new picture between food and the need to generate the diversified product of energy, at least in the U.S.A. In sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) the remake of Africa as a new "bread basket" for food and other commodities will spell a new era of renewed infrastructural building and investments, including multinationals in places like Mozambique, co-ops to pool resources and improve sustainability and efficiency for better competitiveness and output, microeconomic ventures in food and transportation to help local economies fledge themselves, serving on the whole as a new international hub for trade and interchange for the whole of the African continent, at least further south from another gateway, Egypt in northern Africa.
SKYEVIEW: How does the Philippines figure in U.S. foreign policy in the Pacific with oil wealth rearing it's head in the Far East. It is believed that American allied amid the Indian Ocean and Far East have polarized against China and Russia with Philippine President Duterte's new policy towards China and Russia. Americans have to show more favour to Filipinos due to their interests in energy in the Far East. There will be more ingress by China in the area and polarization between Russia and China and the U.S. amidst U.S. interests for the same in energy. The Philippine foreign policy is to pursue their oil reserves for the region and quota their portion for local industry and development of the country. The favoured trading status and technology transfer and other exchanges, engender a safer Pacific Rim and diffuse any polarization between superpowers and encourage a better community of nations. One of the spin-offs will be a stronger tourist market with better investment standards similar to Hawaii's example which is much vaunted by the Americans.
