Thursday, January 30, 2014 | Outsourcing News |

The Information and Communications Technology Office (ICTO) of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) is actively planning on developing more Next Wave Cities to accommodate business process outsourcing (BPO) firms in the Philippines.

Louis Casambre, Executive Director at ICTO, said they are hoping to create attractive alternative outsourcing destinations outside Metro Manila. Moreover, the organization anticipates that the new ICT destinations will spur development and reinforce growth in the nation’s provinces.

Philippines' Next Wave Cities for BPO

The Next Wave Cities in the Philippines are Metro Cavite (Bacoor City, Dasmariñas City, and Imus City), Metro Laguna (Calamba City, Los Baños, and Sta. Rosa City), Metro Naga (Naga City and Pili), Metro Rizal (Antipolo City, Cainta, and Taytay), Baguio City, Davao City, Dumaguete City, Iloilo City, Lipa City, and Metro Bulacan (Baliuag, Calumpit, Malolos City, Marilao, and Meycauayan City).

DOST-ICTO and iBPAP made sure that Next Wave Cities are qualified in terms of talent, innovation, connectivity, costs, accessibility, and business and political soundness.

Emmy Lou Delfin, Program Manager of Next Wave Cities, said their plans are supported by local government units, local ICT organizations, and school administrators.
In other news, seven cities in the Philippines made it to Tholons’ top 100 outsourcing destinations in the world.
