Mr Carlos Mayorico E. Caliwara, Assistant Secretary for Legal Affairs and Consumer Protection, Department of Information and Communications Technology

OpenGov is recognising the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT), the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG), and DOF for the launch of the Philippines Business Data Bank (PBDB).
PBDB will play a key role in the Philippine Government’s anti-red tape program (ARTA) to improve the ease of doing business in the country. It aims to streamline the application and renewal of business permits through online sharing of information by government agencies involved in the process.
Through the PBDB, government agencies would be able to verify the existence of a business entity using a single reference document. The PBDB would also allow the public to verify the existence of a specific business entity. The system will provide the information by accessing data from various sources. The PBDB’s web-based application can be accessed via the National Government Portal.
