The Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA) is launching nine special projects, including its electronic payment and collection system, and recognizing top locators on November 25.

The special projects, which are part of PEZA’s transformation roadmap, will be launched during the agency’s annual Investors’ Recognition Day on November 25.

PEZA will launch its new logo and flag inspired by the “thinking global, acting local” worldview.

It will also introduce its latest and modified agency website and show a glimpse of its electronic payment and collection system.

In line with this automation program, PEZA last February 18 signed a memorandum of agreement with I-PAY MYEG PH (IPMPI), an online payment gateway provider that operates and maintains an Electronic Payment Collection System (EPCS) and can integrate with PEZA’s online portal.

The EPCS enables clients to remit payments through various channels such as ATM accounts, credit cards, mobile wallets, and over-the-counter facilities.

PEZA earlier said it would adopt technologies and explore digital platforms “to improve good governance, transparency, ease of doing business, and accountability.”

In addition, PEZA will unveil the Innovator Man Statue, which will represent the agency’s continuous innovations for 26 years and beyond, and its strategic adaptation in a fast-paced environment.

PEZA director general Charito Plaza will deliver her “State of the PEZA Address” and provide updates on the agency’s plans and programs, including the recent signing of the MOA and its implementing rules with the Bureau of Immigration to reduce processing and approval time of PEZA-visa issuance.
