REPORT LAUNCH: A Better Normal Under COVID-19: Digitalizing the Philippine Economy Now

October 5, 2020


  • During the COVID-19 pandemic, mobility restrictions and social distancing measures are keeping people safe. Rather than completely shutting down, e-commerce and digital payments have permitted business transactions to continue and goods to be delivered; online communication platforms have facilitated home-based work, virtual meetings, remote classes, including social gatherings; and government agencies in many countries have used online processes to quickly deliver social assistance to vulnerable households.

    COVID-19 has underscored the importance of digitalization for economic and social resilience. 

    The Philippines Digital Economy Report assesses the state of the digital economy in the country, and prescribes policy recommendations to increase digital adoption, decrease the digital divide, and address the new normal.
