DOLE Workforce Development Summit

At the 2006 Workforce Development Summit, organized by the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), I presented a paper on the prospects for the cyberservices industry. You can download the paper from the BPA/P website or by right-clicking on this link and selecting "Save Link As".

The paper contains the industry forecasts for 2006-2010, and as I blogged some weeks back, the prospects are looking good for the Philippines. There is cause for concern however, as it is quite possible that the forecasted growth may be hampered by the lack of human resources to fill the jobs. The paper identifies several issues and suggests strategies to take in addressing these issues.

Within a month, the CICT will be issuing a roadmap document on the project and programs that the government, in partnership with the private sector, will be pursuing to address the workforce shortfall. I'll post a link to the document when it becomes available.
