Thanks to a post on Facebook that tells about Deuterium that can make the Philippines one of the most richest country in the world. The details about this deposit mentions that the Philippines has the largest because of the deep trenches in its seas.
Deuterium is alternative fuel that is now being used by some countries. It said the Philippines can earn $30 billion dollars a year from this fuel.
It is said that this could be the reason why other Asian countries are interested in staking claims on islands and seas that are rightfully within the territory of the Philippines. Also, a reason why politicians want to keep their positions in the government.
