The next administration will be seeing the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) setting its focus on providing internet access to the remote areas of the country, as well as mitigating the issue of red tape to boost the government’s revenue collection.
The statement comes from upcoming DICT Secretary John Ivan Uy who claims the move to coincide with President-elect Ferdinand “Bong Bong” Marcos, Jr.’s plans for the “digitalization of infrastructure.”
In a bid to improve the government’s efficiency in the collection of revenues, part of DICT’s actions is to implement automation in the government as well as smoothen out services.
Since the enforcement of the updated Public Service Act, which has liberalized the IT sector of the country, more and more foreign companies have been showing interest in bringing their business into the country.
DICT, on its part, is making the integration for all parties involved by establishing common fiber networks as well as common towers.
