The Philippines, home to Manila's standstill traffic jams, is aiming to become known for the "city of the future.'
Called New Clark City, the urban project is planned to be a high-tech green city promising science-fiction-worthy technology, from robots to drones to self-driving vehicles. It's located 120 kilometers outside the Philippine capital, and its investors hope it will be the first of its kind in the country: smart, sustainable and resilient to disasters.
Of course, many countries are aiming to build their own version of the city of the future, and the Philippines still has a long way to go in its economic development, so the project's financial future is not a certainty.
According to its lead developers, the project is mainly funded through public-private partnerships — a move necessary for the cash-strapped country.
