Globe Lauds President’s Tech-Driven Vision Outlined in SONA, Vows Support with Innovative Solutions
Leading digital solutions platform Globe applauds President Ferdinand Marcos Jr.'s strong emphasis on digital transformation as a cornerstone of national progress in his second State of the Nation Address (SONA).
Globe has long championed the digital revolution, and stands ready to support government initiatives and contribute innovative solutions to empower the nation's digital leap.
"The President's emphasis on technology as a catalyst for the country’s advancement is very encouraging and is aligned with Globe’s vision for a digital nation. We look forward to the vast possibilities opened by digitalization for spurring economic growth, elevating the delivery of public services, and bolstering the Philippines’ competitive stance,” said Ernest Cu, Globe Group President and CEO.
In his 2023 SONA, President Marcos underscored the critical importance of digitalization not as a future goal but as an immediate need to bolster service efficiency and create more opportunities in the country. The President recognized the growing significance of e-commerce, digital literacy training, and science, technology, and innovation as key drivers of workforce competitiveness.
This trajectory is well aligned with Globe’s accelerated shift from telco to techco, as it continues to grow its roster of portfolio companies offering first-to-market digital solutions that aim to address day-to-day pain points of its individual and business customers.
The Globe Group is at the forefront of digital innovations, offering services in the areas of fintech, healthtech, adtech, climate tech, education, entertainment, human resources and investments.
Through its core telco business, Globe also continues to boost connectivity through network expansion and use of the latest technology, and the rollout of innovative products that promote equitable access.
The company recently acknowledged the President’s issuance of Executive Order No. 32 to streamline the permitting process for telecom infrastructure. This effort aligns directly with Globe's commitment to improving internet services nationwide and resonates with the President's aspiration to enhance the country's mobile and broadband internet speeds.
“Globe shares President Marcos' vision for a digitally enabled Philippines and is eager to support this transformative journey. It recognizes the pivotal role of public-private partnerships in achieving national goals and is committed to contributing to a prosperous, digitally inclusive future for the Philippines,” said Cu.
