In order to strengthen the Philippines’ digital economy, Vice President Sara Duterte emphasized the importance of decreasing cybersecurity threats on Wednesday.

During a presentation of the “National Cybersecurity Talent Workforce Assessment Report of the Philippines,” which was organized by the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) in collaboration with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), Duterte made the statement.

Duterte stressed the value of the nation’s participation in the digital economy in a speech that was recorded, pointing out that it is necessary for the country to compete on the global market.

However, she emphasized the need for the nation to strengthen its cybersecurity capabilities in order to be safe and secure against digital hazards.

“We must make sure we are also taking measures to reduce cybersecurity concerns and that we are building up a country of cybercafe internet users as more Filipinos go online to participate in the digital economy and profit from the internet,” she said.

Duterte praised the DICT’s collaboration with USAID to “elevate” the nation’s existing level of digital innovation and literacy.

Because they are leaders in global technology and digital innovation, she added, “our cooperation with foreign donors like USAID is essential in that they can transmit knowledge and skills to better the state of our digital infrastructure and ecosystem in the Philippines.”

She stated that planned outcomes of the cooperation would include “risk-based cyber protection frameworks, regulatory improvements for cybersecurity,” as well as improving the state’s digital proficiency and dependability.

Furthermore, she added, “it promotes individual knowledge of the dangers posed by cyber-compromise, supports positive results, and elevates the digital consciousness of the Filipino workforce.”

On Wednesday, Duterte took part in a sneak peek of the general rehearsal of the Italian opera Turandot by Giacomo Puccini.

In a speech, Duterte praised the performance for showcasing Italy’s rich culture.

Regarding Marco Clemente, the Italian ambassador to the Philippines, Duterte remarked, “To His Excellency, thank you for bringing back live opera in the Philippines and for giving our students and their teachers this special opportunity to personally experience witnessing a world-renowned Opera.”

Additionally, Duterte exhorted the students who were also invited to attend the performance to follow their passions and creative impulses.

In addition to paying tribute to the past of Italian opera with this performance, she stated, “we are also exposing it to fresh generations who, I pray, will continue this tradition and further promote it for future audiences.”

According to the OVP, the Turandot general rehearsal was seen by about 800 students and instructors.
