Metro Clark enters International Top 100 BPO centres list

Metro Clark has proven to be a competitive city as it finally made the 2015 Tholons International Top 100 Outsourcing Destinations.

Tholons is the leading full-service Strategic Advisory firm for Global Outsourcing and Research. Since 2006, the firm has been identifying the emerging outsourcing destinations around the world, using the proprietary and industry-leading Tholons Location Assessment Framework.1

From 102nd place, the city now places 98th in this year’s list. From seven, the country now has eight cities in the poll, following the entry of Metro Clark for the first time.

Meanwhile, Manila and Cebu City retain the 2nd and 8th spot, respectively. Bangalore (India) remains the number one outsourcing destination, along with five other Indian cities in the Top 10. Kraków (Poland) and Shanghai (China) occupied the 9th and 10th spots respectively.

According to Tholons Managing Director Ankita Vashistha, “the overall Top 10 Emerged Destinations saw some significant movements this year. While each regional market does have its own systemic problems, each one has the potential to drive the growth of its cities toward greater heights in the Top 10 Emerged Destinations,” she added.2

Other Philippine cities that made the prestigious list include Davao City (69th), Sta. Rosa (82nd), Bacolod (86th), Iloilo City (91st), and Baguio City (95th).
