Iligan is currently striving to be included among the New Wave Cities in the field of Information and Communications Technology (ICT).
During its regular session early this week, the Sangguniang Panlungsod (SP) passed a resolution sponsored by City Councilor Bayani Areola requesting Deputy Executive Director Monchito Ibrahim of the Department of Science and Technology – Information and Communications Technology Office (DOST-ICTO) to extend an accreditation to the City of Iligan.
This SP measure serves to support the efforts of Acting Mayor Ruderic Marzo to make Iligan an investment center in the field of ICT.
It was learned that New Wave Cities of ICT are places that have potential for location of Call Centers or Business Process Outsourcing Centers and similar businesses outside of Metro Manila and other big cities. – The New Ranao Star –
