The Anti-Red Tape Authority (ARTA) and Australia have partnered on business process management (BPM) to help the Philippines improve its government processes.

Last week, 10 personnel from the ARTA received training on BPM and System Dynamics from the Australia Embassy in Manila in collaboration with the Australia Award and Alumni Engagement Program and Queensland University of Technology.

In a release on Thursday, ARTA thanked the Australian government and Ambassador HK Yu for the technical aid, which sought to capacitate ARTA personnel in “redefining Philippine bureaucracy.”

The training ran from March 18 to 22 and advanced the participants’ knowledge of the principles of BPM.

Systems thinking in the review and reengineering of systems and procedures of government through the application of Systems Dynamics were also introduced to the participants, which sought to help them improve their conduct of process reviews.

Through this training, the ARTA said the participants were able to develop holistic intervention mechanisms and engagement strategies in communicating process improvement.

“We are thankful with Ambassador Yu’s continued support to the vision of President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr.’s efficient government service. I am overjoyed that an exceptional nation for regulatory processes, such as Australia, can share their expertise with us,” ARTA Secretary Ernesto Perez said.

Representatives from the Civil Service Commission, the Department of Budget and Management, the Department of Information and Communications Technology, the Department of Transportation, the Department of Trade and Industry, the National Economic and Development Authority, and the Professional Regulation Commission also joined the training.

The Australian Embassy has been a staunch supporter of ARTA on the implementation of Republic Act 11032, or the Ease of Doing Business Law.

Under the Bagong Pilipinas, the ARTA said it will continue welcoming assistance from foreign governments in its journey to establish a more inclusive, business-enabling environment that facilitates ease of doing business through good regulatory practices and efficient government services. (PNA)
