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.
