To achieve its aim of enhancing government operations and streamlining delivery of government services across the nation, the Deparment of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) focuses the spotlight on three of its most important projects on June 23, 2017 through One Connection, One Nation – an event signifying the launch of the National Government Portal (NGP), the unveiling of the National Broadband Plan (NBP), and the reintroduction of the refocused Pipol Konek Free Wi-Fi Internet Access in Public Places Project.
The NGP, which is accessible through www.gov.ph, shall serve as a one-stop gateway for all online government content and transactions, providing citizens easy access to online government services they may need from different offices and agencies. The NBP is created to establish the blueprint for infostructures enabling access to services among the unserved and underserved towards the countryside, facilitating improved communication and transaction channels. Lastly, through Pipol Konek, the DICT aims to bring within arms-reach digital opportunities to every Filipino by providing internet access – ultimately connecting the people to their government and to their fellow countrymen. All three projects seamlessly intertwine to better Philippine ICT by accelerating infostructure and systems development, stimulating economic growth and enabling the citizenry.
One Connection, One Nation gathers partner organizations, government agencies and offices in a call for the integration of its respective online services into the NGP, its cooperation and support in the implementation of the NBP, and in the rollout of Pipol Konek throughout the country, fostering a one digitized Philippine government, and a united, one nation for all Filipinos.
