Mayor Binay noted that although the Makatizen card with it's instant access to the city government's services in itself is a major leap forward already, the collaboration with Globe, GCash and iBayad will mean an efficient and cost effective way of meeting day to day needs and obligations through the wide range of digital and mobile services.

The Mayor also said that the city government will extend full support for Globe Telecom's initiatives toward strengthening its telecommunications network and thereby promoting a digitally connected Philippines.

In easier words... Better cellular and internet signal for the city of Makati with their latest collaborations.

  1. Wow, this is awesome. I thought this idea is impossible here in the Philippines as most countries are using this system. Truly, Makati is really great, kudos to the Mayor of the City for this. Makati will surely be an inspiration to a lot of big cities and hopefully they can have this kind of system as well. I'm looking forward that we can have this in Cebu as well. I really like this idea and this is truly a hassle free for everyone.

  2. this is indeed a great news for the citizens of Makati. It's fascinating how one card can perform so many functions for the benefits of its users... I just hope they could broaden its scope to nearby cities or better yet nearby provinces like Cavite... that would be really cool ... but this is a great initiative from the government of Makati.. kudos to them

  3. This is such a great idea! I don't see any negatives to this yet. I hope Quezon City follows suit. It'll help people like me that need primary IDs but don't have the necessary paper work or time for that matter.
