Another information technology park will be established in Dumaguete City, following the approval by the Sangguniang Panlungsod to convert the Circular House in Bantayan for the purpose.
The first IT Park was the Dumaguete Business Development Park where Teletech and Robinsons are situated.
Three buildings will be constructed at the new park to accommodate about 6,000 terminals that will provide job opportunities to more than 10,000 Dumagueteños and Negrenses, Mayor Manuel Sagarbarria said.
He said everything is going smoothly for Dumaguete in terms of economic development due to its rich human resources as a university town.
During the Regional Development Council meeting in Cebu, two locators showed interest in doing business in the city, Sagarbarria said. One of the biggest is Shoe Mart whose representatives have visited his office to signify their intention to establish a branch in Dumaguete, Sagarbarria added.*JG
