Australian company, Sydney Harbor Tall Ships, will open a call center in Pampanga to be fully operational by early 2018 according to the Trade Department.
This was confirmed by a statement by the Department of Trade and Industry. They further said that the call center will serve as a support for the operations of Australian company. The call center will be handling customer queries, bookings and accounting.
The Philippine office will be in Pampanga and will register for incentives with the Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA).
In a meeting with the Philippine Trade and Investment Center in Sydney, Philippine commercial consul Kenneth Yap said that Sydney Harbor Tall Ships chose to invest with the Philippines because they are confident with Filipino talent.
“Filipinos share the same language and outlook as Australians,” said SH Tall Ships owner Marty Woods.
Sydney Harbor Tall Ships plan to start small but will expand over time as need demands them.
“The fact that we are able to attract big and small companies to set up in the Philippines shows the global competitiveness of the Philippine Information Technology- Business Process Management industry,” Yap said.
