There are obvious benefits that government digital transformation can bring to a nation and its citizens such as increased productivity and jobs, efficiencies in the delivery of services, and empowerment of government agencies, industries, and citizens.

While conceptually it is an achievable vision, government digital transformation is not without its challenges. This presentation will focus on issues and key challenges such as the digital divide between standards & regulations in e-commerce, digitally competent workforce, cybersecurity readiness, budgets and investments.

Panel Discussion: Philippines Through Digital Transformation and Inclusion

As we are now living with the new normal, the use of digital technology and digital transformation have become important for Filipinos in coping with the present crisis, moving towards economic recovery, and getting us back on track towards our long-term aspirations. However, it is still below its potential, with the country’s digital adoption generally trailing behind many regional neighbors. The “digital divide” between those with and without internet leads to unequal access to social services and life-changing economic opportunities.

In this panel, industry leaders and experts will discuss current issues and challenges and address societal deficits concerning the digital divide, provide policy recommendations that foster innovation and foster a robust and transformed business environment.
