PH BPO Sector Unfazed by Obama’s Anti-outsourcing Efforts

PH BPOs Unfazed by Anti-outsourcing Plans

With at least half of the call centers in the Philippines serving US-based firms, the Business Processing Association of the Philippines (BPAP) appears to be reassured amid President Barack Obama’s mass petitioning for businesses to bring jobs back to the US. The outsourcing body also believes that the Philippines’ flourishing BPOs will see no adverse effects as the anti-outsourcing bill is being processed.

Martin Crisostomo, BPAP’s Spokesperson, stated that business process outsourcing is no longer a mere tool or a solution for businesses to stay afloat, but is now considered as a major factor to stay competitive. Furthermore, he strongly believes that outsourcing is here to stay and is now part of globalization.

In his State of the Union address, Pres. Obama said companies that are providing jobs to US citizens should be rewarded and prioritized, and not those businesses that transfer processes to offshore locations. Benefits such as tax deduction shouldn’t be given to firms that outsource work overseas, but should be given to companies that bring jobs back home.
