Philippine CeC Program bags FutureGov 2010 Digital Inclusion award

Zamboanga City (19 October) -- The Commission on Information and Communication Technology's (CICT) Philippine Community eCenter Program emerged as the top winner for the Digital Inclusion category, one of the 22 categories of the FutureGov Awards 2010.

The awards, an annual celebration of public sector innovation and best practices in Asia, were conferred during the FutureGov Awards Gala Dinner on October 15 at Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia.

The Philippine CeC Program, a national digital inclusion program which aims to provide Filipinos access to ICT services and opportunities through Community eCenters (CeCs), was shortlisted from 869 nominations from public sector organizations from 16 countries - an unprecedented number in the awards' fourth-year run - before being declared as one of this year's winners.

The Digital Inclusion category recognizes programs that make use of technology to bridge the digital divide.

Aside from the Philippine CeC Program, the Digital Inclusion award has also been won by another CICT initiative, the iSchools project, in 2009.

The FutureGov Awards is organized by the FutureGov Asia Pacific magazine, an independent trade journal focusing on public sector modernization. This year's nominations were judged by a panel of senior civil servants from all over Asia and chaired by Laurence Millar, Editor-at-Large of the FutureGov Asia Pacific magazine and former Government Chief Information Officer of New Zealand.
