Baguio economic zone creates more jobs-A A +A
Wednesday, October 5, 2011
COMPANIES are expanding their operations in the Baguio City Export Processing Zone (BCEPZ), creating more jobs, and increasing revenues and taxes.
BCEPZ manager for operations Engineer Mody Agyao Jr. said the latest to venture is Convergys, a company engaged in relationship management, customer management solutions, and billing solutions located at the Hillsford Properties along Camp John Hay (CJH).
The Ayala-owned Hillsford Properties has call center companies, retail shops, fast food chains, and condominium units. It is conceptualized to serve Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) ventures and hosts operations of actual local and international hardware and software firms, he said.
Agyao said the project ensures the establishment and maintenance of a central park and many open green areas. It promises to create a walker-friendly environment.
A lot of foreign and local investors in the BCEPZ have already generated many jobs in this mountain resort city and in the neighboring provinces over the past several years. (Joseph B Zambrano)
