In a statement, DICT said that President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. has approved the initiative on April 11, 2023. The approval will speed up the implementation of the DICT’s e-governance programs and projects, which aim to create an interconnected and accessible government for the Filipino people.

DICT Secretary Ivan John Uy emphasized that they strive to provide a government that is always accessible to the public 24/7, right at their fingertips.

The DICT in collaboration with other government agencies initially introduced the eGov Super App on December 2, 2022. The initiative involves developing, implementing, and integrating several components, such as E-Local Government Units (ELGU), E-Government Application (EGovApp), EGovpay, E-Travel, and E-Cloud, among others.

Furthermore, the DICT is collaborating with the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) to develop a comprehensive e-commerce portal.

This platform will enable Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) to offer their products and services online and simplify the entire process for them by integrating logistics, marketing, payments, access to credit, and source materials into a single ecosystem.

Uy lauded the president’s timely action, saying that it promotes ease of doing business while curbing red tape in government transactions through traceability and accountability.

The department, however, did not specify the release window of the said super app.

JM's highest stat is probably his curious ardor to anything tech—electronics and gaming in particular. He certainly heeds utmost regard to specsheet, visuals, and rule of thirds. If creativity and wit sometimes leave JM's system, watching films, anime and a good stroll for memes are his approved therapeutic claims.
