ICT sector among Davao City’s economic boosters

Information and communication technology (ICT) remains one of the key drivers of Davao City’s economy, according to the Davao City Investment Promotion Center (DCIP). ICT joins services and tourism sectors as the three major contributors to the city’s economic landscape. DCIP officer-in-charge Lemuel Ortonio said the services and ICT sector continues to grow as homegrown and multinational business process outsourcing companies expand their services from voice to also include non-voice. The Davao City Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Inc (DCCCII) has also noted growing interest from foreign investors to Davao City.
