Pangasinan supports DICT Regional Roadshow

Lingayen, Pangasinan- The Provincial Government of Pangasinan expressed support for the 2024 Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) Regional Roadshow held on June 3 at the Provincial Training and Development Center II, here.

‘Bayang Digital ang Bagong Pilipinas’ signifies a nation that embraces digital technology as a catalyst for progress and development.

Governor Ramon V. Guico III, who was represented by Atty. Christine Jamie Melchor described the event as coming together to embrace digitalization in every part of our lives, covering both government and public services as well as our daily activities.

“This event is a chance for all of us, both citizens and government, to unite under the principles of Bagong Pilipinas and work towards a better and digital future. The province fully supports the DICT Regional Roadshow to enhance the needs to a desirable end we all want to achieve under the ‘Bayang Digital ang Bagong Pilipinas,” Atty. Melchor said as she called on everyone to take the event as a learning opportunity, experience, and utilize it for the people.

Director June Vincent Manuel S. Gaudan, OIC Director IV, GDTB, and OIC Regional Director, Region 1, discussed government digital transformation.

Among the big projects of the agency, the primary policy body implementing all the ICT projects in the country is the eGOV under the eLGU, which will be launched on June 6.

eGOV is a citizen-centric platform that serves as a partner of the people, ensuring transparency and integrity towards improving people’s well-being, while eLGU is a one-stop system that combines all local government unit services, including permits, contributions, clearances, and payments.

Other concerns discussed during the undertaking include the Region 1 Calendar of Activities for the National ICT Month, Philippine National Public Key Infrastructure (PNPKI) Orientation, Advancing Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through the Internet of Things, How Localized Innovation Promotes Nation Building, and Phishing Defense: Staying Safe Online, among others.
