CITY OF MALOLOS— Bulacan gained another feather in the cap after Gov. Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado received the recognition for the province as one of the Top 10 New Wave Cities in the Philippines for 2012.

The governor said that they are proud that the province has been acknowledged as a key for economic and technological advancement of the country by the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) and the Information Technology and Business Processing Association of the Philippines (BPAP) for three consecutive years.

“It is evident that development is really making its way in our region. It is our vision that Bulacan will become the new engine for economic growth. Tamang-tama ang ating lokasyon. Itinuturing ang Bulacan na Gateway to the North. Kaya ang industriyalisasyong mangyayari sa ating lalawigan ay magpapayabong rin ng ekonomiya ng ibang lalawigan sa Central at Northern Luzon,” said Alvarado.

He added that aside from being accessible, “Metro Bulacan” has passed the criteria set by the DOST-ICTO and BPAP which includes favorable environment for business; enough work supply and manpower; strong telecommunication structure; low cost of doing business; and other factors that sustains the Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) industry.

“Another good thing about Bulacan is that we are so close to Metro Manila. We have many colleges here producing qualified graduates, and majority of BPO employees are mostly from here,” explained Alvarado.

Provincial Cooperative and Economic Development Office head Jovito Saguinsin added that the provincial government continues to improve facilities and infrastructures in the province to make it more equipped to new investments.

Other provinces/cities cited as 2012 Top 10 New Wave Cities include Lipa City, Dumaguete City, Metro Laguna, Metro Cavite, Baguio City, Iloilo City, Davao City and the two new qualifiers, Metro Rizal and Metro Naga. ###
