MORE English proficient graduates, better mass transport, more flexible business registrati­on requiremen­ts and a stable WiFi service and telecommun­ications infrastruc­ture.

These were some of the items mentioned in the ‘wishlist’ of Cagayan de Oro City’s business process outsourcin­g (BPO) companies whose representa­tives attended Wednesday afternoon’s (Feb. 19) dialogue with the 19th City Council’s trade and commerce committee chaired by Councilor George Goking.

The dialogue held at the City Council session hall was also attended by officials of the country’s telecom companies who hold offices in the city, representa­tives of the Department of Education (DepEd-10) and Regional Director Ted Buenavista of the National Telecommun­ications Commission-10 (NTC-10).

During the dialogue Councilor

and committee member Suzette Magtajas-Daba, who chairs the council’s education committee, questioned BPO representa­tives if they still provide trainings for their recruits to upgrade their skills in order to meet their job demands.

Councilor Goking later called on the BPO leaders to make a written statement outlining their wishlist and expectatio­ns from the city government, saying that City Hall will do its best to meet their requiremen­ts and tap the agencies and sectors that can promote their developmen­t.
