PWDs, women, marginalized should be ready for digital future — Bongbong Marcos
“Always at the heart of our community-building should be our people. We must continue to prepare our people, especially the marginalized and the vulnerable, such as the women and the persons with disabilities in business, for the digital future. The citizens of ASEAN should reskill and upskill to maintain their leading roles in our economies,” said Marcos.
“Our growth only matters when it is inclusive,” said the President.
Marcos explained that digital infrastructure allows broad access, with public services also shifting online.
“The interoperability of our systems, in terms of digital trade, digital payments, and the like, should foster a vibrant digital economy that is interconnected as it is secure. Let us bolster support for the increased participation of micro, small, and medium enterprises and start-ups in the digital and creative economies,” said Marcos.
