Mayor Felipe Antonio B. Remollo receives an orientation on the implementation of Paleng-QR Ph Program that will allow vendors and drivers of tricycles to receive digital/online payments using QR codes from their customers and passengers for faster, efficient and secure transactions especially when there are restrictions in mobility caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Luther Palma, representative of the local branch of Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas, presented to Mayor Remollo the concept, objectives and mechanics of the Paleng-QR, which is being co-developed by the BSP and Department of Interior and Local Government to encourage the participation of Dumaguete City.
Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas Deputy Governor Bernadette Puyat is also expected to visit Mayor Remollo for conference to discuss on how to institutionalize the implementation of the Paleng-QR Ph program in the locality, which will also help prevent the spread of fake money and COVID-19 infection.
