PSA & SM Supermalls Partnership
The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) and SM Supermalls entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on 14 June 2021 at 1030am at SM Aura, BGC, Taguig City. Representing PSA are National Statistician and Civil Registrar General, Undersecretary CLAIRE DENNIS S. MAPA, Ph.D and Assistant Secretary ROSALINDA P. BAUTISTA of the Philsys Registry Office. SM Supermalls was represented by its President, STEVEN T. TAN and Senior Vice-President, BIEN C. MATEO.
The MOU formally sealed the nationwide participation of SM Supermalls to make the PhilSys registration services accessible to the mall-going public. Through the joint initiative of SM and PSA, all citizens and foreign permanent residents can now easily register for the official national identity card. The National ID card aims to simplify and boost efficiency by presenting only one (1) ID in both public and private transactions.
