Bataan Vice Governor Cris Garcia highlighted Bataan’s initiatives in blockchain technology to improve the modernization and efficiency of public service delivery when she led the presentation of the provincial government at the recent London Blockchain Conference in the United Kingdom.
She presented to the conference the technology initiatives the province was adopting which included an electronic medical record system for an efficient healthcare system; the developments in the Freeport area of Bataan in terms of opening the doors to blockchain industry locates; and partnership with NChain to establish a platform that will streamline today’s public systems.
The event provided many opportunities for the province, including the expressed interest of the Department of Information and Technology (DICT) to help Bataan develop an application to promote electronic governance or e-governance, the Bataan Provincial Information Office stated. Butch Gunio
An agreement between the provincial government of Bataan and the DICT for a digital document signing project will be signed with the aim of further improving the efficiency of public services in the province.
Students from the Ateneo De Manila University (ADMU) will undergo training for an educational program that will be shared with state universities nationwide. This development is also expected to contribute significantly to the educational development in Bataan.

It brought together global FinTech companies, application developers, infrastructure partners, content creators and technology enthusiasts who served as a catalyst for groundbreaking collaboration and industry advancement, according to a press release from the provincial information office.
