Philippine premier telecommunications and ICT solutions provider Eastern Communications officially announces the renewal of its long-standing partnership with the Cebu Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCCI) for the highly anticipated Cebu Business Months (CBM 2023). This significant collaboration aims to bolster Cebu businesses through their digital transformation journey.
Eastern Communications fortifies support for Cebu businesses
The recent contract signing between Eastern Communications and CCCI, held in Cebu, solidifies their shared commitment to promote growth and global competitiveness among enterprises in the region. With great excitement, Eastern Communications looks forward to actively supporting CBM 2023, inviting all Cebu businesses to expand their horizons through a series of events organized by CCCI and to evolve with Eastern’s wide array of business-grade connectivity plans & ICT solutions.
Now on its 27th year with the theme, “Cebu ‘ta bai!”, CBM 2023 sets its sights on shaping the future for the next generation, fostering growth, education, and sustainability across various industry sectors in Cebu. The Cebuano term “Cebu ‘ta bai!” meaning “Let’s go to Cebu, friend!” in English, or “Cebu tayo, kaibigan” in Filipino, encapsulates the rallying call for local business leaders and startups to choose, visit and invest in Cebu, which can boost the economic growth and development for the Visayas and its neighboring provinces.
In fact, Cebu’s hospitality sector is booming and showing promising growth this year, following the upsurge in domestic and foreign tourists. According to recent news released by one of Eastern’s esteemed industry partners, the Hotel, Resort, and Restaurant Association of Cebu Inc. (HRRACI), hotels in the Cebu Business District are currently operating at an impressive 70% occupancy rate as of May 2023.
CBM 2023 serves as a platform to explore new avenues of business growth and innovation, elevating Cebu to the status of a world-class city that nurtures emerging businesses. Some of the highlights of CBM include the Grand Opening Salvo in June, the Tourism Summit in July, the Technology Summit in August, and many more. More exciting lineup of activities for Cebu’s business landscape will be announced soon.
Empowering Cebu’s BPO Industry
Exciting opportunities are also in store for the Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) industry, as the Contact Center Association of the Philippines (CCAP) Cebu in partnership with Eastern Communications, recently hosted the Cebu Member Roundtable discussion with CCAP heads and executives at NUSTAR Resort & Casino in Cebu.
This exclusive forum delved into the latest infrastructure updates and served as an excellent platform for exploring the limitless potential surrounding the future of the rapidly expanding BPO industry in Metro Cebu.
