Trump policy unlikely to alter PH BPO sector

US Ambassador to the Philippines Sung Kim said the country’s business process outsourcing (BPO) sector is unlikely to change despite the protectionist stand of US President Donald Trump. There will not be any dramatic changes to US companies’ BPO operations in the Philippines because the country offers very capable, smart employees and reasonable labor costs. Kim’s statement should serve as reassurance for some BPO stakeholders who have expressed concern Trump’s promise to bring jobs back to the US.
