Cordillera-  The municipality of Mankayan, Benguet and Luna, Apayao  were chosen by the Department of Information and Communication Technology (DICT) as the rural impact housing hub in the Cordillera region.

The two chosen municipalities  will benefit from the DICT's program to improve the internet connectivity that encourage the  emergence of technology-based entrepreneurs and internet-based businesses as well as the improved transactions of the local government. 

The purpose of this program is to help individuals earn a decent income and improve the living conditions of families most especially those from the remote villages of the municipality.

"We will surely take advantage of this opportunity being provided by the DICT so that we will be able to lobby for the improved connectivity in the municipality which will be beneficial to all our constituents even those from the remote villages," the mayor of Mankayan, Frenzel Ayong said.

A required training center  will be established by the local government providing at least 25 computers and other  needed facilities.  Likewise, the DICT  is incharged of sending  competent trainers to help  the trainees who are interested in online entrepreneurship.

The honorable mayor of Mankayan, who just attended the DICT workshop in Clark, Pampanga  said that the training will prioritize the locals with disabilities, single parents and other marginalized groups although it will be open on a first come, first serve basis.

Ayong affirmed that appropriate screening will be done by the concerned offices of the municipal government so that appropriate guidance and training will be given to those who seriously want to commit in building and sustaining an online business or online jobs. 

He also mentioned that the municipality of Mankayan will work closely with the Lepanto Consolidated Mining Company and the Far Southeast Goldfields Resources Inc. in the implementation of this program.  

These mining companies  will be sharing their resources on their social development and management project. The local government can greatly benefit from these companies' sustainable implementation of the noble project that aims in providing guaranteed livelihood  to local residents who are interested to work at home.

Moreover, Ayong imposed that the DICT  will do its part in coordinating with telecommunication companies to improve their internet signals so that online entrepreneurs can do their online jobs successfully and efficiently.
