The Information and Communications Technology Committee will be hosting a webinar entitled "DICT Priorities under the New Administration" on September 27, 2022, from 2:00 - 4:00 PM via Zoom.


The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the shift towards digitalization. In this context, the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) has adopted the Connect, Harness, Innovate, and Protect (CHIP) Implementation Plan in working towards achieving national digital transformation and securing the place of the Philippines in the global digital economy.


Under the 'Connect' and 'Innovate' components of the implementation plan, the DICT has formulated initiatives that aim to enhance the country's digital infrastructure and e-government services.


The webinar will hear updates from the DICT regarding the progress that has been made so far as well as the plans, policies, and programs that it will focus on as we move forward with the new administration. The webinar will also discuss updates on the National Broadband Program and the Luzon Bypass Infrastructure Project as well as the status of the development and expansion of e-government services.
