MANILA, Jan. 29 — Hinduja Global Solutions Inc. (HGSI) on Friday thanked President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo for nurturing the business process outsourcing (BPO) sector that boosted its growth from just 4,000 workers in 2001 to half a million workers last year.

The President led the ribbon cutting and unveiling of the marker opening HGSI’s 3,000-seat facility located at 1880 Building in Eastwood Center, Libis, Quezon City.

In a press conference, Partha de Sarkar, chief executive officer, said HGSI would expand this year to other urban centers of the country, notably Clark, Tarlac, Cavite, Batangas, and Laguna, all in Luzon; Cebu and Iloilo in the Visayas; and Cagayan de Oro and Davao in Mindanao.

Last year, the company’s operations grew by 20 percent and generated revenues of US$ 16 million. It is projecting higher growth this year, with the economy recovering in most parts of the world, said HGSI Manila chief executive officer Pushkar Misra.

HGSI’s investments in the Philippines stand at US$ 35 million, including the cost of acquiring the facility of another BPO in 2003. With additional investments this year, the company expects to double the number of its employees.

The company currently has 80 clients in different industries around the world. It employs 14,500 people in the US, Canada, Europe, Mauritius, India, and the Philippines. It also has a working relationship with partners in Colombia, China and Japan, all employing over 1,800 people. (PNA)
