Faster Internet will create more outsourcing jobs

Finance Secretary Carlos Dominguez III said faster Internet speeds, brought about by new infrastructures of the telecom companies, will result in the putting up of more business process outsourcing (BPO) companies in Mindanao. The finance secretary also expects more home-based outsourcing jobs to be created due to the higher bandwidth. Dominguez added that the next generation will be suitably employed in high technology industries, BPOs and support businesses of every sort. He also expressed optimism that investors would do well to venture into Mindanao, not only because the new President hails from the South, but, more importantly, because it is an island that is teeming with natural resources and human talent and has the most headroom for growth in the country.
