THE ISLAND province of Bohol, with a local economy based largely on tourism and agriculture, is also a potential information technology (IT) hub if the internet infrastructure were developed faster, according to the Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA) head. PEZA Director General Charito B. Plaza, in an interview, said they have already identified possible IT Parks in Bohol, but property developers are hesitant to build offices because of the slow development of internet data connectivity in the province. Ms. Plaza called on the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) to help improve Bohol’s IT infrastructure. On the other hand, Department of Trade and Industry-Central Visayas Regional Director Asteria C. Caberte said a number of business process outsourcing (BPO) companies are already operating in Bohol and the province is ready to host more. — The Freeman
