According to the Philippines House of Representatives, the country along with the US and India should partner to construct digital public infrastructure. Following the Digital Public Infrastructure lecture at the International Monetary Fund headquarters in Washington, Philippines parliament speaker Ferdinand Martin G Romualdez said that it is very important for the Philippines, India, and the US to lead in this digital public infrastructure initiative because nations have much to gain from this.

Romualdez further added that building public digital platforms is very much aligned with the campaign promise of President Ferdinand Marcos Jr to speed up the country’s digital transformation. This is the reason why the House of Representatives has passed the E-Governance/E-Government Bill, which seeks to shift the entire bureaucracy to the digital space for faster and transparent delivery of services, and for better engagement with the public.
