The Information Technology and Business Process Association of the Philippines (IBPAP) and the Science and Technology department of the country released the latest ‘Next Wave’ Cities list. It included Baguio City, Davao City, Dumaguete City, Iloilo City, Lipa City, Metro Bulacan, Metro Cavite, Metro Laguna, Metro Naga, and Metro Rizal.
The so-called ‘Next Wave’ cities are identified to score well in terms of talent, infrastructure, cost, and business environment. These locations are also called Centers of Excellence. These do not receive government incentives but are highly regarded and promoted to investors.
Bacolod City is also dubbed as a Center of Excellence alongside Metro Manila, Metro Cebu, and Metro Clark.
Areas that are grouped as "metro" are said to have the appropriate talent and infrastructure. These include Baliuag, Calumpit, Malolos City, Marilao and Meycauayan City of Metro Bulacan. Bacoor City, Dasmariñas City, Cavite City and Imus City for Metro Cavite and for Metro Laguna, there’s Cabuyao City, Calamba City, Los Baños, Sta. Rosa City, and San Pablo City. There’s also Naga City and Pili of Metro Naga, and Antipolo City, Binangonan, Cainta, and Taytay for Metro Rizal.
IBPAP is also keeping an eye on Batangas City, Cagayan de Oro City, Dagupan City and Tagbilaran City as these are considered as emerging locations.
