The new government’s “heart and blood” is e-governance.

On Thursday, a member gave the assurance that the e-governance measure, which is intended to “enable and strengthen” both present and future government initiatives, may be passed into law by the 19th Congress.

The pledge was made by Davao Oriental Representative Cheeno Miguel Almario during a meeting of the House Committee on Information and Communications Technology’s technical working group (TWG) to polish the proposed e-governance law, which President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. listed as one of his top legislative priorities in his first State of the Nation Address.

The switch to e-governance, according to Almario, is important and opportune since it will give Filipinos the “greatest level of ease” when dealing with the government.

The future of government is here. The new government’s lifeblood would be electronic governance, he declared.

Through digitalization, the measure seeks to standardize and streamline the delivery of programs and services across all government agencies.

Almario, the TWG chair, claimed that once put into law, e-government and e-governance will enable data synergy between and among national agencies and local government units, encouraging speed and efficiency in their operations.

“This is the next step toward an even better government, and it is a milestone piece of legislation. Being the chair of this technical working group and a member of the 19th Congress is a true honor, he remarked.

For his administration to be able to offer the public “quick, transparent, and efficient” services, Marcos has underlined the necessity of accelerating the nation’s digital transition.

For the government to give the Filipino people the “best” services they deserve, Marcos stated it must “fully use” new technology and procedures.

And in order to successfully digitalize our bureaucracy, government, and the way we conduct business, work, and even connect with one another, he continued, “we (had) to make it as efficient, as streamlined, and as economical as possible so that we can deliver that incredibly vital service.”

As he pointed out that the Philippines had placed 89th out of 193 nations in the United Nations E-Government Survey, Marcos restated his goal to make the government “more flexible to fast-changing changes.”

He added that the Philippines’ current position is not “encouraging” and that this demonstrates that the nation is going backward.

The House would expedite plenary approval of proposals to digitize the government’s extensive record-keeping under the proposed E-Governance Act and E-Government Act, according to earlier promises made by Speaker Martin Romualdez.

Using digital platforms, he declared, “We are one with President BBM and the Executive department in making government transactions and delivering services in a faster, more efficient, and more transparent way.
