More BPO firms forecast to enter Metro Iloilo

With the declaration of Iloilo as a Center of Excellence for business process outsourcing (BPO) companies, Metro Iloilo is now gearing up for the expected inflows of more BPO companies in the city. Iloilo City was identified as one of the Centers of Excellence by government agencies and the Business Process Association of the Philippines, prompting Jericho Go, SVP of property developer Megaworld Corp, to state that the city now stands to take up a bigger share in the country’s BPO industry. Go also expects more BPO locators to set up offices at Megaworld’s 72-hectare Iloilo Business Park. Iloilo is also expected to become a top choice to host meetings, incentives, conventions and exhibitions.
