BPO construction now allowed under ECQ

Malacañang announced the amendment to the Omnibus Guidelines on the Implementation of Community Quarantine in the Philippines on Saturday, May 9, which states the types of private and public construction projects that are now allowed even in areas under Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ).

The types of private construction now allowed are the following: food production, agriculture- and fisheries-related, fish port development, energy, housing, communication, water facilities, manufacturing, and business process outsourcing (BPO).
