Commission on Information and Communications Technology (CICT) Secretary Ray Anthony Roxas-Chua III said the people of Iloilo City must work harder in order to attract more IT-BPO investments and provide more job opportunities. The city is considered one of the top new wave cities in the Philippines.
"Iloilo is number three, but you can do much to further improve," Secretary Chua said at the opening of the Convergence 2009 in the city. He added that the presence of many business outsourcing companies in the country is concrete evidence of the accolades given to the Philippines. The most recent award is the Best Offshoring Destination of the Year title given by UK's National Outsourcing Association (NOA).
At present, the Philippines ranks second, next to India, in the list of key outsourcing destinations in the world. Based on the CICT report, the BPO industry in the country employed about 400,000 workers in 2008, and reported US$6.1 billion in export revenues.
