Call centers reeling from strong peso. Gov’t assistance through tax subsidies eyed

LAPU-LAPU CITY, Philippines — Business process outsourcing (BPO) firms have expressed concern over the effects of the strong peso on their operations and are considering seeking government help.

“The rapid rise of the peso has caught BPOs flatfooted. It caught us unprepared,” said Oscar Sañez, chief executive of the Business Processing Association of the Philippines (BPAP) on the sidelines of the Cebu ICT 2007 conference.

The peso has repeatedly surged since late 2006, fueled by strong overseas remittances, rising foreign investments, and a generally positive economic outlook.

Ayan ha? Nasaan kaya si Howie Severino? Sana, nabasa nya to. Na merong government tax subsidy na pina-plano sa mga call centers. Pero, walang pinaplanong government tax subsidy sa housing para masolve yong Tondominium series nya. Anyway, ang sagot naman nang DTI sa problema nang mga call centers ay eto.

Relocate call centers outside Metro Manila –- DTI exec

DAVAO CITY, Philippines – What could be the woe of call centers in Metro Manila with regards the strong peso could be an opportunity for provincial cities, a local government official said.

Teodulo Pasawa, city director of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), on Thursday said a stronger currency could push more call centers to relocate outside of Metro Manila to take advantage of its cheaper pool of English-proficient workers.

The dollar is currently pegged at about P46.58, and Pasawa said the peso’s strong gains for the past months have caught many call centers flatfooted.

“Since most of them quote their labor expenses in dollars, this may force them to look for other alternatives outside of Metro Manila to cut down on cost,” he said.
