PGMA inaugurates ICT firm, attains 500,000 worker goal

Manila (15 January) -- There are now more than 500,000 ICT (information communications technology) workers in the country today.

This, as WNS First Global Delivery Center in the Philippines inaugurated its facility at the Eastwood Cyber City in Libis, Quezon City, hitting President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo's 500,000 ICT employment mark.

The President, who graced the inauguration rites, is resolved in establishing a cyber corridor super region that cuts across Baguio to Clark to Metro Manila, to Cebu to Davao.

"Half a million of nine million new jobs is certainly a substantial result," the President remarked during the ceremony.

Prabhakar Bisen, president and CEO of WNS Philippines, said the country is"one of the most exciting destinations" for BPOs and call centers. He added that all this was the result of the foresight and hard work of the current administration.

In early 2008,WNS formed WNS Philippines as a joint venture with Advanced Contact Solutions, Inc, a pioneer and leader in BPO services and customer care in the Philippines.

The BPO Association of the Philippines had projected the expansion of the BPO industry to a million jobs this year, with the physical infrastructure in place. (PIA) [top]
