Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) Undersecretary Anna Mae Yu Lamentillo is among Rising Tigers Magazine’s People to Watch 2023.

The award recognizes emerging leaders who have been contributing to positive change in the Philippines and Asia.


“I am happy and very honored to be recognized by Rising Tigers Magazine. This award reminds me to be grateful for the opportunity to serve our country,” said Lamentillo.


“In accepting this recognition, my commitment is to continue working hard to help our country achieve its full potential and improve the lives of Filipinos. Previously, we worked with 6.5 million Filipino workers to build roads, bridges, classrooms, flood mitigation projects, airports, and seaports to improve mobility, access to basic services, and to connect our communities. Now, our goal is to ensure universal connectivity—this includes bridging the digital divide, closing the digital gender gap, and ensuring digital inclusion so that Filipinos can fully harness the benefits of digital technology,” she added.
