In a report by the Philippine News Agency (PNA), the government is approaching the targeted 50 to 70 million Philippine Identification System (PhilSys) year-end quota, with 37.2M eligible to acquire their Philippine Identification (PhilID) Card.

Aside from the 50 to 70 million quota, Socioeconomic Planning Secretary Karl Kendrick Chua stated that their goal is to get 100-percent financial inclusion at the family level by year-end.
