DTI, PEZA seek to life new BPOs ban in NCR

Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) Secretary Ramon Lopez III is pushing for the lifting of locational investment restrictions, including business process outsourcing (BPO) operations in the National Capital Region (NCR).

Additionally, investments promotions agency Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA), which is also chaired by Lopez, is preparing for a new letter urging the president to lift the moratorium on the establishment of new BPO operations in Metro Manila.
