Iloilo makes presence felt as RP’s IT hub

ILOILO CITY, Sept. 5 (PNA) -- Iloilo has already made its presence known and felt as an Information and Technology (IT) hub not only in the Philippines but in neighboring countries as well.

Trade and Industry Provincial Director Diosdado Cadena disclosed that Iloilo will play host to five major business process outsourcing (BPO) players with the coming in of Teletech and Sutherland Global Services before the year ends.

Last month, some members of the Iloilo Federation for Information Technology (I-FIT) likewise attended an IT conference in Cebu City where they made substantial contacts with key IT players, Cadena said.
“Considering that with IT everything would seem to be virtual then we have our international presence known already,” he said.

Meantime, the I-FIT, an organization that spearheads Iloilo’s campaign to become IT competitive, Tuesday launched the Information and Technology week, which is one avenue to further showcase the potentials of Iloilo.

The event is participated by various IT players, academe and related government agencies.

Among the activities that were lined up include lectures and trainings on IT, call center fundamentals, call handling, animation and web page development.

With the theme “IT Innovates Iloilo”, Cadena said that the industry has brought a lot of better things for Iloilo thus making it more competitive.

Iloilo is one of the areas identified within the cyber corridor under President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo’s super region program. (PNA)
