The Business Process Association of the Philippines (BPAP) is scheduled to meet with members of India's National Association of Software and Services Companies (Nasscom) for a unified effort against plans of anti-outsourcing policies in the United States and in Europe.
The US and the European Union have gathered plans to enact protectionist legislations that would deter companies from outsourcing jobs offshore. Nasscom, India's main body representing the Indian software industry, has already been actively lobbying against this and has recently talked to BPAP to gain the Philippines' support.
"The Philippines and India are both BPO superpowers, so we need to have a common stand. We need to be ahead of the curb," said Jonathan de Luzuriaga, BPAP's executive director.
"Nasscom said we are No. 2 BPO destination in the world so we should help them out. It's just a matter of educating some geographies that outsourcing is now a reality and a global trend," he further added.
The meeting will involve plans to come up with a common position paper to be sent to the US and Europe. Nasscom and BPAP have agreed to explain the benefits of outsourcing directly to American and European companies should their efforts to stop protectionist legislation fail.
