The Philippines… leader of the offshore market

Infrastructure:
Very good. The program Special Economy Zone "ACT" gave way to the creation of technological poles intended for the development of IT activities. The American army left a solid infrastructure of communication.

Highlights:
If French is hardly practiced, English is perfectly mastered in the Philippines (old American protectorate / 2nd national language).

Each year the universities of the country produce some 350 000 technology-related degree holders!

Weak points:
Political instability somewhat tarnishes the image of the Philippines but it can in no case slow down their ambition of development in the information technology and services fields.

In general:
The Philippines represents a very strong potential in the "offshore" field, provided that the necessary framework and logistics for its successful exploitation are supplied.

A choice which rests on a right compromise between the costs,
the competencies and the risks!
