According to House Assistant Majority Leader and Cebu Rep. Gerald Anthony Gullas Jr., Tholons ranked Cebu as the 8th best location in their 2014 Tholons Top 100 Outsourcing Destinations list, trailing after a strong line up that includes Bangalore, Metro Manila, Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai, Hyderabad, and Pune.
Gullas added that Cebu will likely attract more investors once construction of the Mactan Newtown, a 28.8-hectare special information-technology park and economic zone, is finalized. The township will be located in Lapu-Lapu City, Cebu and is fronted by Megaworld Corp. It is likewise anticipated to promote a "live-work-play" environment.
The official pointed out that Cebu has covered the fundamentals such as fiscal incentives, strong support from local government, college-educated human resources professionals, infrastructure, among other innovations to progress as an outsourcing hub. In addition to that, he said Cebu offers an environment that promotes well-being because it is less congested, therefore minimizing stress among workers. The region is also known to be less expensive than its counterparts such as Manila and other outsourcing hubs worldwide.
Of all the outsourcing hubs in the Philippines, Gullas said only Cebu and Metro Manila made it to the top 10 of the 2014 Tholons Top 100 Outsourcing Destinations.
