Philippine IT sector to launch five-year digital strategy plan

The Commission on ICT (CICT) will launch this month the Philippine Digital Strategy (PDS) plan for 2011- 2015 aimed at mapping out the country’s ICT direction.
With the theme ‘Transformation 2.0: A Digitally Empowered Nation’, the plan seeks to contribute to the administration’s ‘Social Contract with the Filipino People’, mainly by leveraging the use of ICT for national development. The PDS identifies four strategic thrusts, namely: 1) transparent government and efficient services delivery, 2) internet opportunities for all, 3) investing in people: digital literacy for all, and 4) ICT industry and business innovation for national development.
In terms of providing internet opportunities for all, CICT Chairman Ivan Uy told FutureGov all sectors of the community should benefit from technology and connectivity. “Access to information helps remote and marginalised sector all over the country like out-of-school youth, fisherfolks and farmers become more economically progressive,” he said. The plan is a redevelopment from the plan of former CICT chief of Ramon Sales.
CICT Commissioner Monchito Ibrahim said they have concluded 10 regional stakeholder consultations and are collating the suggestions and comments that will be included in the neSuggestions made by participants in public consultations are the establishment of a geographical information system to improve tax collection, land use, and monitor climate change effects.
Providing technical and financial assistance to local government units (LGU), strengthening private and public sector partnerships and promoting successful e-government implementations in other LGU’s, were also proposed.
The PDS is also aligned with the principles and thrusts of the ASEAN Information and Communications Technology Masterplan 2015, which was adopted in January 2011. AIM 2015 was developed to serve as a guiding document to advance ASEAN regional ICT cooperation.
The month of June is declared the National ICT Month in the country under Presidential Proclamation No. 1521 (Series of 2008).
