The Philippines will start next week a 27.8 billion-peso ($575 million) project to give national identification cards to millions to boost financial inclusion, even with the region’s worst coronavirus outbreak.

The government targets to register 9 million heads of low-income families before year-end, with the goal of giving national IDs to all Filipinos by 2022, Economic Planning Secretary Karl Chua said at a virtual briefing on Friday.
