Sunrise industries to generate more opportunities to Balangueñosby Joelyn G. Baluyut
BALANGA CITY, Bataan, Jan 14 (PIA) –- The investments of “sunrise industries” in this city would create additional income and job opportunities to Balangueños which will further contribute to the economic growth here.
Sunrise industries are new or relatively new and growing fast. These are expected to make a big dent in the lives of people here.
Through the efforts of the Public Employment Services Office (PESO) and the Software Ventures International (SVI), a business process outsourcing (BPO) company, 150 persons have started their data encoding training. They will eventually be hired by a client of SVI.
This initial start of BPO industry in Balanga has the possibility to reach 1,000 to 2,000 for the coming year depending on the availability of qualified workers, Garcia explained.
SVI is one of the premier global companies in the field of information technology (IT) consulting and business solutions development. It is a company that provides software services and business services capitalizing in a team of more than 2,000 highly skilled employees. It is also a pioneer in the Philippine IT offshore outsourcing industry.
BPO, on the other hand, is a subset of outsourcing that involves the contracting of the operations and responsibilities of specific business functions to a third-party service provider.
Real estate like Camella Homes that had poured almost P700 million investment also added to generate employment here, said Garcia.
Also, the city government had talked with Ayala Land, Megaworld, Sta. Lucia, and Robinsons Land which are big names in the real-estate industry to have their own mixed used community development here. (WLB/JGB PIA-3)
