Senator Edgardo J. Angara called for the swift enactment of a measure creating an independent government agency focused on the growth and development of the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) sector in the country, despite the ongoing impeachment trial of Chief Justice Renato Corona.
Authored and sponsored by Angara, the measure (Senate Bill No. 50 under Committee Report No. 53) creating the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) reorganizes the communications-related agencies under the Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) into a separate entity.
