The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) and Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) reported a consistent increase in Philippine Identification (PhilID) cards dispatched to the Post Office for delivery.
In the third quarter, the PhilIDs dispatched by the PSA and BSP grew from 1.86 million in July to 2.24 million in August. In the month that followed, it further climbed to 2.53 million.
As of 28 October 2022, the total PhilIDs dispatched to the Post Office is at 23,248,689 which is 77.2 percent of the 30.1 million target for 2022.
“We thank the BSP for its tireless efforts and unwavering commitment to ensure that card production and printing is at full speed ahead. With this sustained increase, we are confident that we will achieve our goal to issue 50 million PhilIDs, physical and digital, by the end of the year,” said PSA Undersecretary Dennis S. Mapa, National Statistician and Civil Registrar General.
PSA and BSP are continuously exploring more ways to further expedite and increase the volume of PhilID production and printing such as improving data flow.
