MANILA, Philippines — Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) Assistant Secretary Anna Mae Yu Lamentillo has been promoted by Malacañang to undersecretary of the department.

Lamentillo, who currently supervises DICT’s Information and Strategic Communications Division (ISCD) and the International Cooperation Division (ICD), is in charge of the department’s strategic communications and media; international relations, particularly exploring partnerships with other nations through cooperation and exchange of knowledge, technical expertise and best practices in digitalization; as well as coordinating with the Legislative Branch – the Senate and the House of Representatives – to further the department’s legislative agenda.

As undersecretary, Lamentillo will handle more divisions in the department, and she is ready to take on bigger tasks in order to help fulfill President Marcos’ goal of bridging the digital divide and advancing e-governance.

“Much more needs to be done to accelerate digital connectivity and improve the government’s digitalization efforts. As undersecretary of DICT, I hope to provide more support to Secretary Ivan John Uy in fulfilling the department’s mandate. Improving our digital infrastructure and providing internet connectivity to all our communities mean opening more opportunities for Filipinos to have a better life. While the task at hand will be greater, I am thankful for President Marcos’ continued trust in me,” she said.
