DTI: Philippines and India to become outsourcing partners

by: Sidney Liquigan

Tuesday, October 3, 2017 | Outsourcing News |

The Philippines and India are two of the leading countries, as well as top competitors when it comes to business process outsourcing (BPO). But rather than competing, we may be seeing these two BPO nations as outsourcing partners in the future.

That is according to the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) in a report by GMA News last September 11. According to Trade Secretary Ramon M. Lopez, instead of competing with one another, the Philippines and India are looking for ways to complement each other's BPO sectors.

Improving complementation

"In the area of BPOs, we agreed to work on hopefully improving complementation in serving our respective clients in areas of complementation instead of competing," Lopez said.

"We can probably jointly offer our respective services,” he added, saying that the respective areas of strengths of the Philippines and India should be combined and offered to clients.

The Philippines is a top call center outsourcing choice due to Filipino workers who are highly proficient in the English language and due to the Filipino culture's affinity to Western cultures. India, on the other hand, is a top location for European and US outsourcing firms and has the largest talent pool in the world in terms of technical skills.
