For the Philippines to become a major blockchain hub in Asia, the country’s IT workers will need to improve their skill sets, according to the president of the Israel Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines (ICCP, David Elefant. He said the goal of transforming the Philippines into a major fintech center in the region, however, is achievable with the help of all participants.
