The Better Access and Connectivity (BEACON) Project

BEACON project is a five-year program that intends to promote economic growth by improving the country’s secure and transparent access to information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure and smart logistics. Leveraging existing innovation and investment in the Philippines, the project will help enhance the country’s digital ecosystem by focusing simultaneously on institutional capacity; policy, regulatory, and process improvements; and underlying systems, infrastructure, and interoperability – all undertaken with intensive private sector and multi-stakeholder engagement. The result will be a stronger and more competitive telecommunication market and digital economy which is needed to accelerate economic growth and regional competitiveness.

BEACON is implemented across three key components: to improve the quality of ICT and logistics infrastructure, to strengthen the enabling environment and regulatory governance, and to reinforce cybersecurity protections.
