The Municipality of Mahinog is now moving towards becoming an ICT-enabled local government unit (LGU), Mayor Alex R. Jajalla disclosed.
He said that as one of this year's beneficiaries of the Philippine Community eCenter (CeC) Program of the Commission on Information and Communications Technology (CICT), Mahinog will now have the opportunity to provide ICT-enabled services, training and relevant content not just to its constituents, but to the many tourists and visitors of the island as well.
Mr. Rienard Tadlas, Regional IT Coordinator (RITC) for Region 10 recently conducted an orientation at the Sangguniang Bayan (SB) session hall before the Mahinog’s CeC Core group and members of the SB.
Tadlas said the CeC Program in Mahinog will pave the way for ICT-enabled services to be available in this locality. Students, farmers, fisherfolks and businessmen are foreseen as the main groups who will benefit from the program.
The strategic location of the LGU will further broaden the user base of its planned CeC to include the tourists and visitors who frequent the island of Camiguin.
The LGU is planning to improve its frontline services with an official and interactive website in the municipality to promote Mahinog to the world.
