Facing Off Against COVID-19: Building Socioeconomic Resilience for the Philippines through New Digitally Led Sources for Public Revenues

Thursday, 10 September 2020 | 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM PHT 

IDC’s survey found that 55.8% of Asia Pacific public sector organizations expect a slow and difficult recovery rate, post-COVID-19.

In May 2020, the Philippines introduced a Bill in Parliament aimed at imposing a value-added tax on big tech firms such as Facebook, Alphabet’s Google and Youtube, Netflix, and Spotify, to raise 29 billion Pesos (US$590 million) to fight the coronavirus. This is a key digital growth area for e-commerce as its citizens are among the world’s heaviest users of social media. Notably, the government has committed over US$23 billion in funding or 5-6% GDP for health and economic activities, with plans to increase more over the coming months.

COVID-19 has dramatically altered and accelerated the digital landscape for many ASEAN governments. Heightened IT strategies and deployment best practices are at the forefront of government leaders' attention, with increased importance on LOB IT outcomes, multiple digital initiatives that span various stakeholders across and outside the agency, and programs and services that need to engage and effectively meeting more personalized constituent needs.

In this webinar, our speakers will discuss what the main transformational trends organizations should focus and address in Philippines. 

3 main transformational trends are noted:

  • The Future Digital Economy- enabling a sustainable digital economy with sufficient digital skills development, accessibility, and equity
  • An Outcomes-Based Approach- bridging silos, engaging lines of business, and constituents needs
  • Address 'Going Digital' Government Challenges- increased regulatory enforcement agility needed to tackle rapidly a rapid rise in public misinformation, digital trust issues, as well as procurement risks

Seats are limited so be sure to reserve your seat.

We will be giving out a complimentary IDC info brief to help your business navigate the disruptions through this COVID-19 pandemic.
