With the Digital Sprinters framework as its foundation, the index is based on four pillars: Physical Capital, Human Capital, Technology, and Competitiveness. The Philippines ranked the highest in Competitiveness, placing 57th with a score of 34.74, in Physical Capital (75th and 48.28) Human Capital (87th and 34.38) and in Technology (89th and 23.74).
