Aklan to host Visayas ICT conference 2018

The province of Aklan is hosting the first ever Visayas ICT Conference in 2018 to discuss the different challenges and concerns that the ICT and the business process outsourcing (BPO) industries are facing in the region. The Visayas ICT conference will invite both government and non-government organizations, according to Aklan ICT Council secretariat Marsh Bernabe. The conference will also put up a program to train at least 500 participants in the business process outsourcing industry in Aklan. The province has been beefing up efforts to entice BPO locators. The provincial government earlier approved the construction of a new P1.5-million ICT building, which was supported by the Aklan Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
