Cebu’s BPO growth entices New Zealand to invest in education, tourism

The New Zealand government has expressed its desire to invest in Cebu’s education and tourism sector, mindful of the dynamic growth of the business process outsourcing sector in the city. New Zealand Ambassador David Strachan said the New Zealand government is considering putting up commissaries in Cebu to strengthen networking between the two places. He said the New Zealand services sector is excited about the growth of the Cebu market for New Zealand education and tourism sectors. Ambassador Strachan also said he would be expecting more Filipinos to travel to New Zealand with the opening of more direct flight services to the country.
