    VP Leni champions IT-BPM sector: “This industry will propel our economy to greater heights”

    VP Leni champions IT-BPM sector: “This industry will propel our economy to greater heights”

    Throwing her support behind the information technology and business process management (IT-BPM) sector, Vice President Leni Robredo said on Monday, February 28, her administration will build a “vibrant team” with the industry should she win in the presidential elections in May.

    “Ang expectation ko talaga, we are able to build a vibrant team – government and representatives from your sector… with the expectation that this team will, as I have said earlier, not just untie all the knots, pero be able to plan policies that will boost the industry even more. With the realization na, 'yung BPO industry talaga will propel our economy to greater heights,” Robredo said in an online discussion with IT-BPO leaders and employees.

    The event was organized by the IT and Business Process Association of the Philippines (IBPAP), the flagship organization of the IT-BPM industry, as part of a series of industry round table discussions with the presidential candidates.

    Robredo underscored the industry’s contributions to the economy, despite the challenges it faces from COVID-19, government regulations, and competition from other outsourcing centers like India.

    She noted that the industry’s growth despite the pandemic shows that “this is one of the most resilient” industries and has immensely contributed to the country’s economy.

    At the forum, IBPAP president Jack Madrid emphasized that the IT-BPM sector is already a 1.4 million strong workforce in terms of direct jobs and has generated another 4 million indirect jobs for the Filipino people.

    “You are also a sector that has always delivered, and it is incumbent upon government to ensure that the policy environment seeks ways to strengthen and empower you so that you can maintain your momentum and solidify your place as the vanguard of our economic recovery,” Robredo said.

    Robredo committed to improve ease of doing business in the country by enacting legislation that support the IT-BPO industry and its employees with more flexible hybrid or “work from home” arrangements, invest in up-skilling and re-skilling graduates and workers to enable them to earn higher salaries by performing higher-value jobs, and most of all, strengthen the country’s deficient digital infrastructure, saying it will be “the cornerstone” of her administration should she be elected president in May.

    “Your industry is powered by very talented, dedicated Filipinos and one of the roles of government is really to provide the necessary systems and infrastructure so that their talents and their dedication is harnessed to the fullest,” she said.

    Robredo emphasized that industry leaders and workers will be able to participate in policymaking.

    “I have always been very big on empowerment and I think listening to your voices will be a very active ingredient in shaping the laws, policies, regulations that govern your sector. Government will bind its strength with yours to push the nation-building agenda forward,” she said.

    Robredo unveiled her plan to create a comprehensive talent roadmap that will link the government, academe, and industry to focus on science and technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) and transformative digital technologies.

    Robredo also said that if elected, her administration will prioritize building better public transportation and improving BPO employees’ welfare and access to government services and online transactions, in order to improve their safety and quality of life .

    "Kailangan mas compassionate 'yung programs, mas 'yung empathy dagdagan ng pamahalaan to provide the most basic of the services,” she said. [End]
