City Government prepares for the BPOs

“It’s time to learn success,” this was just one of the most convincing phrase of Dado Banatao, the Filipino-American entrepreneur and engineer who was credited with having developed the first 10-Mbit Ethernet CMOS with silicon coupler data-link control and transreceiver chip. Banatao was also the one who made the first system logic chip set for IBM’s PC-XT and the PC-AT, and the local bus concept and the first Windows Graphics accelerator chip for personal computers. Indeed, one of the Philippines’ ICT heroes, Banatao was a champion who served as an inspiration to the participants of the 5th VICTOR Conference, 3rd Education Summit and 3rd Creative Congress held in Bohol Tropics Resort last week.

Noted advocates in the industry, led by Department of Information and Communication (DICT) Regional Operations and Countryside Development Officer, Monchit Ibrahim, National ICT Confederation of the Philippines (NICP) President, Stephanie Caragos, IT Business Process Association of the Philippines (IBPAP) President, Dan Reyes, Philippine Software Industry Association President Jonathan de Luzuriaga, Managing Director of EC Council Singapore Breyvan Tan, IBPAP Executive Director on Talent Development, Ana Maria Bongato, Game Developers Association of the Philippines President, Alvin Juban and Chief Executive Officer of Zeenoh Games, JD Abenaza were all brought together to share industry trends and development in the ICT. The team also presented the challenges and further identified the collaborative avenues where Tagbilaran City and Bohol can move forward to promote ICT industry and to generate new investments which would create jobs for both the City and the Province.

The Bohol-ICT Council presidents from the past to the present led by Leah Tirol-Magno, Delilah Biliran and Joanne Philipps were behind the event in partnership with the Provincial Government of Bohol and the City Government of Tagbilaran. City Councilor Eliezer Borja welcomed all the delegates in behalf of Tagbilaran ICT Council Chair, City Mayor John Geesnell “BABA” Yap.
