Davao BPO firms continue with business activities

Davao’s business process outsourcing (BPO) sector remains vibrant and growing despite the recent bombing that killed 15 people and injured at least 67 others. BPO firms in Davao continue with their usual business activities as authorities have assured the public that the city remains safe. According to the management of Marco Polo Davao, while individual leisure travelers and groups with foreign participants have cancelled their reservations, corporate clients such as BPO companies are still pushing through with business activities. Department of Tourism regional director Roberto Alabado III said the people in Davao need to stand up to the world and show to visitors and would-be visitors that it is still safe to come to Davao.
