Philippine Cyberservices Corridor

The Philippine Cyberservices Corridor was officially "christened" by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo at her keynote speech last March 9, 2005 at the Euromoney-sponsored Philippine Investment Conference held in Lapu-lapu City, Cebu.

“Our cyberservices corridor actually stretches 600 miles from Baguio in Northern Luzon to Zamboanga in Mindanao. It’s served by a $10B high-bandwidth fiber backbone and digital network. It’s home to 75,000 call center and BPO agents who all speak English and many of whom speak Spanish, Japanese, Chinese or Arabic - all of whom provide cyberservices at par with global standards”.

What's next for CICT, working in partnership with DTI?

Why Philippine Cyberservices? "e-services" is the generic name for IT- and ICT-enabled services delivered over the Net, such as call handling, BPO, content transformation and/or transcription. "Philippine Cyberservices" will be the brand of e-services delivered by Filipinos. "Philippine Cyberservices Corridor" will be the place to go to find such services.

PCC. We service the world.

"Cyberservices", eh? Alliteration gives it a nice ring. ;)

I look forward to seeing big prospective clients walk down the Corridor. :)

good evening po, commissioner mapa. i'm not sure if blogspot delivers comments to the blogger by email, but i hope you'll find this comment anyway. i made a post specifically about your talk in the recent iblog summit, and i hope you'll drop by to read when you have the time.

i'd like to know more about your thoughts on e-governance... and if i may, i'd like to broadcast your thoughts on my blog, too. i'm interested in efforts to develop philippine ICT industries, especially those geared toward offshore outsourcing.
