BPO firm eyeing 4,000
new workers in NegOr

BY JUDY F. PARTLOW

A business process outsourcing provider aims to hire an additional 4,000 call center agents in Dumaguete City once its newest site is fully built.

At the blessing and unveiling of the marker at its second site at Link Sy IT Park in Barangay Bantayan, Dumaguete yesterday, Qualfon site director Scott Warner said the new branch will bring up the local agent population of Qualfon from 3,000 to 7,000, and 10,000 nationwide.

He said the Philippines has a lot of opportunities, and that operating in Dumaguete allows Qualfon to offer high quality customer service at lesser overhead costs.

LP holds 1st rally in Dumaguete

Despite the cancellation of the trip of President Benigno Aquino III to Dumaguete City yesterday due to stormy weather, the Liberal Party-led coalition pushed through with its first rally in Negros Oriental.

Campaign manager Senator Franklin Drilon led the rally at the Negros Oriental sports complex in Dumaguete that was attended by LP local candidates for various elective positions in Negros Oriental and Siquijor provinces, a government press release said.

Senatorial candidates present at the rally were Paolo Benigno Aquino, Grace Poe Llamanzares and Jamby Madrigal. Gwen Pimentel, sister of Senator Aquilino Pimentel III, and Elvira Tootsie Angara, wife of Rep. Juan Edgardo Angara, were also present.

China rejects UN arbitration
on contested sea

MANILA – China officially rejected yesterday a Philippine move to bring long-running territorial issues over the South China Sea before a U.N. arbitration tribunal, saying the Philippine’s claim was legally infirm and carried unacceptable allegations against Beijing.

However, the Department of Foreign Affairs said the arbitration process would proceed even if China would decide to ignore it. Chinese experts have asserted otherwise.

China’s move has been widely expected. Beijing has preferred one on one negotiations with other rival claimant countries over the resource-rich waters, called the West Philippine Sea, that have long been a source of diplomatic and maritime tensions.
