The NFCC, built on a two-hectare land, has three sections: the business process outsourcing for call center workstations, technology business incubation center, virtual offices, research and development; the commercial support facilities that will house various commercial establishments; and common information technology facilities such as conference and exhibit halls, investor’s lounge and cyber center management. ?At ang pinakamaganda po sa lahat: Buong pagmamay-ari ito at nasa ilalim ng pangangasiwa ng inyong lokal na pamahalaan. Ibig sabihin, ang inaasahang kikitain ng Cyber Center na P90 million sa renta kada taon, diretso sa pamahalaan ng inyo pong probinsiya,? Aquino said. ?Ang hatid pa nito sa inyo: 6,000 direct jobs, at tinatayang 20,000 indirect jobs sa loob ng susunod na dalawang taon. Dagdag-pondo, dagdag-trabaho, para sa dagdag na serbisyo para sa inyong mga Boss, ang mga minamahal nating Negrense,? he added. He said that the 2015 Tholons Top 100 Outsourcing Destinations Report shows Metro Manila as the second top outsourcing destination in the world, next only to Bangalore, India. Of the 100 cities in this list, eight are in the Philippines, including Bacolod City. ?Kabilang na ang Bacolod City, na tumaas na sa pang-86 ngayong taon, mula sa pang-93 noong lumipas. Patunay ang mga datos na ito: Bigyan mo lang ng sapat na pagkakataon, talagang magpapakitang-gilas ang Pilipino. Kaya naman, sinisikap po nating payabungin ang industriya ng IT-BPM, hindi lang sa Maynila, kundi lalo?t higit, sa mga lungsod o lalawigang hitik din sa talino, talento, at sigasig, tulad dito sa inyo sa Bacolod,? he said. ?
