The demand for jobs and businesses in information technology-business process outsourcing (IT-BPO) in Davao City is expected to remain robust. Lawyer Samuel Matunog, Information Communication Technology (ICT) Davao president, said the majority of the city’s IT-BPO players are eyeing business expansion. The city has 30 to 35 IT-BPO players with hundreds of workers. Matunog said the city has no problem with regard to the talent pool. He said the problem lies in low hiring and the absorption capacities of IT-BPO firms. Moreover, the country’s third telco player, Mindanao Islamic Telephone Company Inc. (Mislatel), looks like it will further boost the city’s already-strong industry. Former ICT secretary Eliseo Rio earlier said Mislatel will help improve the Tech4Ed facilities due to a faster internet network. Mislatel vowed to provide 5 mbps internet speed. The Tech4Ed sites are self-sustaining shared facilities providing access to ICT-enabled services, which evolved from the Philippine Community eCenter Program.
