Thursday, December 16, 2010 | Outsourcing News |

After the release of news reports that compared girls who are involved in cyber sex with call center agents working shifts, the Business Processing Association of the Philippines (BPAP) and the Commission on Information and Communications Technology (CICT) said cyber sex is not BPO. The illegal practice is happening in different parts of the world and is not being outsourced to the country.

Cyber sex not part of BPO industry

BPAP President and CEO Oscar Sañez said cyber sex is online porn and not part of the industry. "Cyber sex and illegal sex dens as reported recently is pervasive on the worldwide web. We should not attribute or compare cyber porn with our flourishing BPO industry," said CICT Chair Secretary Ivan Uy.

Industry groups said they were alarmed by the “wrong association” as this could have a negative impact to the image of the country which is now considered as the no. 1 offshore outsourcing destination.
