Grab Philippines said it teamed up with the Philippine Statistics Authority and the Department of Trade and Industry to ramp up the implementation of the government’s digitalization initiatives.
Grab Philippines director for public affairs Sherielysse Bonifacio said ”the company wants to do its part to help the government in its national ID registration drive as it recognizes how this can benefit our delivery-partners.”
“The national IDs provide our delivery-partners with more than just a reliable means of identification; it will also make it easier for them to avail of government services and benefits,” Bonifacio said.
Bonifacio said that “as the developer of a super app––a platform used by commuters, consumers and e-commerce merchants––Grab knows firsthand how technology and innovation can help contribute to the growth of the Philippine digital economy, which is why we are bullish about the future.”
The DTI together with the PSA earlier this week launched the Institutional PhilSys Registration of Delivery-Riders, a program that deputy national statistician Fred Sollesta said “is aligned with PSA’s mission to prioritize the registration of beneficiaries of various government social protection program in support to this Administration’s 8-point economic agenda that aims to promote business-friendly environment, boost competitiveness and address poverty and equality.”
