A PIDS study finds the use of digital technology in providing financial assistance and training to Filipinos to be effective. TESDA’s Online Program (TOP) users find the application convenient and accessible. Meanwhile, users of the Center for Agriculture and Rural Development (CARD) Bank’s konek2CARD (k2C) said the application has madetheir financial transactions easier, faster, and convenient. To intensify the positive effects of digital technology, the study underscores the importance of addressing the digital divide. It recommends reviewing the laws related to the provision of public goods and services, particularly the internet, as well as the implementation of the Philippine Broadband Plan. It also emphasizes the need to establish a strong collaborative working relationship among key actors in the digital economy and to promote the use of ICT through information campaigns.
