American firms will continue hiring Filipinos for BPO says Salceda

Despite US president-elect Donald Trump’s promise to give Americans stable jobs, American companies are expected to continue hiring Filipinos for their business process outsourcing (BPO) operations. This was the optimism expressed by Albay Rep. Joey Salceda despite Trump’s anti-immigrant policies and commitment to bring back jobs to America. In a statement, Salceda said Filipinos are competitive and well suited for jobs in BPOs. He hopes though that the Trump administration will keep American BPOs in the Philippines and provide citizenship to undocumented Filipinos in the US. President Rodrigo Duterte is looking forward to working with the incoming administration of Trump.
