First BPO production facility opens in Daet
Daet, Camarines Norte (19 June) -- The first Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) production facility in the province of Camarines Norte opens here today (June 19), in time for celebration of the Pinyasan Festival.
Software Ventures, Inc. (SVI) has already established and committed to pursue the BPO project here, one of the pioneer municipalities to host such project in the country.
The production facility is expected to initially hire 150 personnel for the operation of the BPO project and targets to generate jobs at least 450 within the year.
SVI will start the training program today for the 330 pre-qualified personnel.
It can be recalled that Monchito Ibrahim, chief of the Commission on Information and Communications Technology (CICT), expressed optimism towards the project and lauded the same for providing employment opportunities not only among Daet locals but also to the provincial residents.
Mayor Tito Sarion meanwhile said the impact of the SVI BPO production facility, operating in a 24-hour basis, may be ten folds in propelling economic progress in Daet.
The project has been realized through the support and assistance of Cong. Liwayway Vinzons-Chato of the province's lone district.
With the project, Sarion is confident that Daet will be globally known as one of the most competitive LGUs in the country. (RCYu, LGU Daet/PIA) [top]
