Talisay City invites BPO investors

Newly elected Talisay City, Cebu Mayor Eduardo Gullas said part of his administration’s seven-point agenda would be to invite business process outsourcing (BPO) players to invest in the city. Having BPO companies operating in the city will bring economic development to Talisay, Gullas said. Talisay City is the next city south of Cebu City, where the BPO industry is concentrated. The 85-year-old mayor presented his seven-point agenda in his inaugural speech. Talisay City is not included in the next wave cities for the IT-BPO industry in the Philippines.
