New York-based Information Technology And Business Process Outsourcing (IT-BPO) company  in healthcare services Anthem, Inc. is looking into expanding in the Philippines.

For his part, Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) Secretary and Board of Investments (BOI) Chairman Ramon Lopez said that there is an increased interest in investments in telecommunications, broadband, interconnectivity, satellite services, and other digital industries thanks to the economic reforms made by the current administration.

He stated that these investments can be beneficial for the IT-BPO industry as they could lead to better connectivity in the country.
