30 Jan 2007
To help promote Philippine trade, ePLDT has partnered with the League of Cities of the Philippines (LCP) and the Center for Urban Management and Environment, Inc. (CUME) to launch the Philippine Cities Trade and Tourism Information Service or PhilCTTIS.
Developed and conceptualized by Yolanda C. Velez, President of the Center for Urban Management and Environment in collaboration with the LCP and ePLDT. PhilCTTIS consolidates web links to local government units to create a network of trade and tourism information services on Philippine cities. It also offers full, comprehensive and expanded access of the general public and investor groups to economic and business opportunities via organized internet shops nationwide with the full support of the Internet Cafes Association of the Philippines (ICAP).
As it is a web-based information service, the PhilCTTIS provides network members with an opportunity to maximize the potentials of ICT for better economic governance and active participation of Philippine cities in a globalizing economy via e-media campaign for trade and tourism promotion and development. While focusing mainly on trade and tourism investment opportunities, PhilCTTIS will also provide the latest news most relevant to traders, producers and suppliers as well as interesting trade and tourism events, tourist attractions and tour packages across cities from Northern Luzon to Southern Mindanao.
The PhilCTTIS was formally launched during the First LCP Convention held at the Manila Hotel last January 29,2007. Project collaborators ePLDT, LCP and CUME signed a Memorandum of Understanding during the convention. The ePLDT’s collaboration with LCP and CUME attests to its commitment to support local government initiatives through technology. As the premiere Information and Communication Technology (ICT) company in the country, ePLDT makes use of its resources, expertise and infrastructure to help government agencies and organizations improve and enhance delivery of public services, bringing governance to the 21st century.
