PIA Press Release

Leyte vice gov welcomes guests from US-based BPO firm

Tacloban City (September 1) -- Leyte Vice Governor Mimyet Bagulaya, in behalf of Governor Carlos Jericho Petilla, officially welcomed the executives of the ACS International Resources, Inc., a US-based business process outsourcing company, who made a courtesy call at the Governor's office in the morning of Friday, August 31.

In an interview with Vice Governor Bagulaya, she informed PIA that the executives are in Leyte with the prospect of opening the company's provincial expansion in Leyte. She said that currently, the ACS International, Inc. has offices in the Philippines, particularly in Manila and in Cebu.

During the courtesy call, the guests were provided information on the the province of Leyte's sustained invitation for Information Technology companies to locate in the province via the PEZA-declared facility at the Leyte Academic Center.

Vice Governor Bagulaya said that the development of Leyte as the Information Technology (IT) hub in Region, through the Leyte Academic Center, has been the dream of the provincial government under the helm of Governor Carlos Jericho Petilla. The 6.8 hectare property located at Candahug, Palo, Leyte, is envisioned to attract IT investors to the area and stir the creation of more jobs for the Leyte and Eastern Visayas.

The ACS International Resources, Incorporated, Vice Governor Bagulaya said, is one of the biggest information technology company and BPO in the United States operating globally for 20 years already.

It started its operation in the Philippines two years ago and has branches in Manila and Cebu. With the current call center industry boom in the country, the company is tapping the provinces for its expansion, in order to acquire sufficient manpower for its operations.

Initially, the company is interested to acquire 2,000 square meter area at the Leyte Academic Center to set up their provincial branch, seeing that Leyte has the potential for such an expansion, Vice Governor Bagulaya said.

If and when the Company decides that the province is suitable for the planned extension, the executives assured that an initial 500 to 600 personnel would be employed. (PIA 8) [top]
