TITLE: GO NEGOSYO, DOTr, RIDE-SHARING & LOGISTICS DIGITAL PLATFORMS DISCUSS ISSUES
After the first meeting last January 9 with several sharing economy platforms where the main agenda is to push for digitalization in the country, Presidential Adviser for Entrepreneurship Joey Concepcion organized another meeting with motorcycle ride-sharing and logistics digital platforms such as Angkas, Grab, Lalamove and Quad X. This time, the group was joined by Department of Transportation (DOTr) Secretary Art Tugade joined by DOTr Undersecretary Mark Richmond de Leon, LTO Chief Assistant Secretary Edgar C. Galavant, and LTFRB Chairman Martin Delgra III. The insightful meeting served as an avenue to openly discuss the issues concerning the platforms as well as the position of the respective agencies involved.
Believing that digitalization is a game-changer in creating prosperity for all Filipinos, Concepcion extends his support to all online platforms. During the meeting, Concepcion mentioned that the digital marketplace for sharing economy will create opportunities for our micro and small entrepreneurs. “Ride-sharing is the way forward,” he also added.
Secretary Tugade agrees by saying, “digitalization is not only pro-poor but pro-all. Digitalization is a great equalizer.” With the issue on banning Angkas to operate, Tugade clarified that he is not against any mode of transportation as long as it is efficient, safe and comfortable. He also said that they should not be seen as an enemy but as a partner. He emphasized that doing business is fine as long as it is not at the expense of anybody.
Concepcion commended Sec. Tugade’s action of forming a technical working group that will resolve issues surrounding the sector affected by the current policy, laws and judicial decision. The task force formed is a clear indication that government is congenial to working with the industry concerned and openness to work with the private sector which Concepcion has been pushing actively since he assumed the adviser role to the President.
