Dear Sir,

The research will be an Economics paper with the potential title of "The effects of government investments in health, education, technology, and infrastructure on the country's output (GDP) and employment (empl. rates)".

I would like to request the annual aggregate expenditures the government has been spending for technology development in the country since 1986 until 2017, ideally from the Department of Science and Technology.

Thank you so much for your time!
