[/caption] The Philippines has covered a lot of ground in terms of providing high-value software development and IT-related services to a wide number of Japan-based companies. The experience that the Philippines garnered over the years has helped improve the country?s reputation as a viable outsourcing hub for all types of software development among companies in Japan, hence this year?s theme to promote the ?Philippines as Software Development and IT Outsourcing Global Gateway.? Prior to the Sodec expo, the Philippine delegation held a “Software & ITO Seminar and Networking Session” on May 8 at the Philippine Embassy in Roppongi, Tokyo. The afternoon-long event, which gathered more than 100 decision makers from Japan?s technology firms, sought to raise awareness about the Philippines as a software and ITO hub for Japanese requirements, and provide a networking venue between potential Japanese clients and providers from the Philippines. Department of Science and Technology (DOST) Information and Communications Technology Office (ICTO) Executive Director Louis Napoleon C. Casambre also gave an update on the Philippine IT-BPO Roadmap and the government?s growth programs for the IT sector. PSIA President Nora K. Terrado presented the latest trends in the Philippine software development and services industry, highlighting industry growth figures and the capabilities of the Philippines especially as a mature and ideal partner to Japan.

Other partners include BlastAsia, Imperium Technology, J-Sys Philippines, TopConnection.Asia, and PLDT. PSIA?s participation is made possible with the support of the Asean-Japan Center, the Philippine Trade and Investment Center (PTIC) in Japan, and the DOST-ICTO. ]]>
