To assess the growing economy of the business process outsourcing (BPO) in Davao City, the Davao del Norte Information and Communication Technology (DavNor ICT) was created.


The ad-hoc committee, composed of 11 persons from various agencies, was the result of a Focus Group Discussion (FGD) among ICT players in Davao del Norte spearheaded by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI).


About 36 participants from the academe, call center agencies, Internet cafés, and local government units participated in the FGD.


According to Edwin Banquerigo, DTI provincial director, they brought together the industry players to strengthen the individual player’s capabilities to join the loop of ICT Davao.


Atty. Samuel Matunog, chairman of the ICT Davao, Inc., said the province can go beyond contributing talents to an ideal area for ICT investors.


Matunog said that the province just have to improve two major elements in the ICT industry – Internet connectivity and supply of energy.


On the other hand, National ICT Confederation of the Philippines President Wit Holganza said local agriculture-based ICT is suitable in the province to support the existing booming investment in the area.


“We just have to raise the bar of what we are competent right now through ICT,” Holganza stressed.


She added that their organization will assist the province-based ICT sector in promoting Davao del Norte as a potential investment area.
