News : Sydney Firm to Open Pampanga Call Center
Pampanga, Philippines, Oct 3, 2016 -- Australia’s Sydney Harbor Tall Ships, a company operating cruises and private charters in Sydney Harbor, is opening a call center in Pampanga province, according to the Trade Department.
Philippine commercial consul Kenneth Yap said during a meeting with the Philippine Trade and Investment Center in Sydney that SH Tall Ships cited the talent in the Philippines as one of the main reasons for choosing to locate here.
"Filipinos share the same language and outlook as Australians," said SH Tall Ships owner Marty Woods.
The Philippine operation is intended to support their business offering day trips in Sydney Harbor and exclusive charters, specifically in handling customer queries, bookings and accounting.
The Philippine office will be based in Pampanga and will be registered for incentives with the Philippine Economic Zone Authority.
SH Tall Ships plans to start with small complement but expects to grow the workforce based on demand. "The fact that we are able to attract big and small companies to set up in the Philippines shows the global competitiveness of the Philippine Information Technology- Business Process Management industry," Yap said.
