Aboitiz Equity Ventures (AEV) Corporate External Relations, Aboitiz Foundation, Inc., and the Anti-Red Tape Authority (ARTA) recently concluded the post-assessment workshop of Project PinasBilis with plans to move forward with the second phase of this groundbreaking initiative.
Project PinasBilis, aimed at expediting government processes and promoting digitalization, has achieved commendable success in its first phase.
Over the course of its implementation, the project has successfully trained more than 200 officials and employees from various national and local government agencies across the Philippines. This milestone showcases the joint commitment of ARTA and Aboitiz to fostering efficient governance and improving public service delivery throughout the country.
The workshop brought together the Project Management Teams of Aboitiz and ARTA to deliberate on the project’s achievements and chart a path toward reaching more government agencies in the program.
During the workshop, ARTA Director General Ernesto Perez expressed his sincere appreciation to Aboitiz Equity Ventures for their unwavering dedication and support in the drive to eliminate red tape and embrace digital innovation within the public sector. He emphasized that Aboitiz has proven to be a reliable partner, sharing the vision of a streamlined and citizen-centric government.
