The 2nd Day of the National ICT Summit started with the presentation of the recap of Day 1 by Virgilio Gaje, the Public Relations Officer of the CIO Forum. 

The National ICT Summit 2015 or NICT Summit 2015 had Senator Paolo Benigno "Bam" Aquino IV during the ribbon cutting ceremonies and the keynote message. The Department of Science and Technology (DOST) Secretary Mario Montejo was also there to provide a keynote message. DOST-ICTO Undersecretary and Executive Director Louis Napoleon Casambre delivered the welcome remarks. Joining them are Denis Villorente, President of the CIO Forum; Clarito Magsino, President of CIOF Forum; and George Kintanar, Chairman of the CIOF Foundation.

Joe Pasqua, Executive Vice President of MarkLogic then discussed The Turning Point of Data. Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) Undersecretary Adrian Cristobal followed with a talk entitled Competitiveness Activities Towards AEC.

Former Deputy Commissioner and now author Carolina Colborn told us the story of how she went out of the country to find her dreams, and how the Internet helped her achieved it. She is now happily married to a foreigner and has written books about her adventure.
