Trusted Network Alliance Session

Digital transformation has become inevitable and imperative in providing us with the opportunity for digital infrastructure to play a role in propelling our Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) forward, including opportunities to address climate and environmental challenges.

As the principal author of the law that established the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) in 2016, I have long recognized the pivotal role of technology in our nation’s progress, ensuring that every citizen has access to its full benefits and is protected from digital threats. The Internet of Things (IoT) and digital technologies have become vital conduits for efficiently delivering basic services like healthcare, education, and transportation.

Together, let us embrace the power of DIGITAL: Digital Infrastructure for Green Innovation and Technologies Advancing Long-Term Sustainability and Environmental Protection.

By bridging the digital divide and fostering trusted networks, we lay the foundation for a resilient and prosperous future, leaving no one behind.
