More Philippine Cities as ICT Hubs

The Information Technology and Business Process Association of the Philippines (IBPAP) is planning to add more locations to the list of Next Wave Cities. These areas will be developed into information communication technology (ICT) hubs in hopes of further promoting the country as a viable destination for information technology - business process management (IT-BPM) services. During a press conference at the 1st IT-BPM Quality Summit, IBPAP Chairman Danilo Sebastian Reyes said they are looking at adding more locations to the list which will be announced soon.

Next Wave Cities are identified as areas outside of Metro Manila that can either readily accommodate ICT functions, or be developed into ICT hubs. The IBPAP and the Department of Science and Technology use a set of metrics (workforce, connectivity infrastructure, etc.) to analyze if a location is qualified to be included in the list of Next Wave Cities for business process outsourcing operations.

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

IBPAP is eager to attract more potential investors through the new list of ICT hubs. They want to maximize each location’s potential to reinforce the competitiveness of the country.
