Navotas Rep. Toby Tiangco has been tasked to head the House Committee on Information and Communications Technology, and he has plans to further improve the industry.
In a Facebook post, Tiangco said it was important to focus on ICT in the country so that the Philippines could keep up with its peers when it comes to technology and modernization.
Improving ICT is crucial in securing the country’s swift recovery from the pandemic, he said.
