BPOs will remain in the Philippines says Secretary Andanar

Communications Secretary Martin Andanar expressed confidence that American business process outsourcing (BPO) companies will not pull out of the Philippines. Andanar said keeping their BPO operations in the country will be to the best interests of American businessmen. Andanar made the comment after President Duterte declared a Philippine “separation” from the US after the US criticized the Duterte administration’s drug war marked by allegations of summary killings. Andanar said American businessmen know that they would save more in the Philippines. He also noted the capability of Filipino BPO workers to speak English in American, British, and Australian accents.
