Swedish Ambassador to the Philippine Harald Fries has hailed the success of the business process outsourcing (BPO) industry in the Philippines, describing it as highly-advanced. During the reopening of the Swedish Embassy in the Philippines, Fries said that the BPO business in the Philippines is growing, with high-quality professionals. He added that IT professionals working in the country’s BPO sector are highly-skilled and that they should be able to find work in Sweden easily.
