Mayor Zamora’s ‘smart city’ dream for San Juan gets a boost with Honasan as DICT Chief (Manila Bulletin)

With former Senator Gregorio Honasan officially taking over the helm of the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT), the plan of Mayor Francis Zamora of making San Juan a “smart city” may soon come true.

Honasan, who was appointed by President Duterte last November, took oath as the new DICT chief on Monday, replacing Eliseo Rio, its former officer-in-charge.

The former senator and an ally of Zamora was the honorary guest of the then-mayoral candidate during his party’s proclamation rally last March 29.

The new DICT chief, Zamora shared, made a commitment to make San Juan the pilot city in its goal of building smart cities in the country.

Making San Juan a “smart city” by installing free internet access to all of its 21 barangays was one of the proposed plans Zamora has laid out during his campaign.
