The Commission on Information and Communications Technology (CICT), along with the Business Processing Association of the Philippines (BPAP), concluded a week of outsourcing trade missions in the US and Canada. The mission was conducted to further supplement the growth of the Philippine BPO sector amid the economic crisis. According to the BPAP, mergers, disruptions, corporate restructuring, cost containment needs, and business changes needs of overseas companies are the causes for the majority of outsourcing investments in the Philippines.
The Philippines was represented during the trip as a major sponsor at the “World BPO forum 2009” in New Jersey with Globe Telecom, Animation Council of the Philippines (ACPI), Philippine Long Distance Telephone Company (PLDT), and Sencor and Multi-Rational Corporation in attendance. The missions further included trips to New York – with over a hundred companies signifying interest – and Toronto, which attracted over 80 attendees.
Pointwest Technologies and the National ICT Confederation of the Philippines (NICP), SPI-Bpo, Peregrine, DPC DATA, DTSI , Cybercity Teleservices and Affinity Express were among other members included in the Canada-US mission.
