Arroyo: A call center in each province
MANILA, Philippines — President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo wants a call center in every province in the country, and has instructed the Commission on Information and Communications Technology (CICT) to determine how it can be done.
“Gusto natin magkaroon ng maraming call center sa bansa, hindi natin kayang maglagay sa lahat ng inyong bayan, pero sana naman, lahat ng inyong probinsya [We want many call centers in the country. We can’t put up call centers in every town, but we hope, in every province],” she said in a speech before the League of Municipalities of the
Philippines (LMP) at the Manila Hotel on Wednesday.
“So I instructed the commission on ICT to make a technical study on the resources needed to transform every province in the country into an ICT enabler,” she said.
Arroyo said she was “pleased” with the success of the business process outsourcing (BPO) industry in the country, which has provided employment opportunities for Filipinos who would have otherwise gone abroad.
