PLDT Enterprise has been tapped to provide connectivity and ICT solutions and services to various industries under the Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA), a government agency that promotes the establishment of economic zones in the Philippines for foreign investments.
“We firmly believe in the Philippines’ competitiveness in becoming a business destination for global investments,” says Theo Panga, director general at PEZA. “In doing so, we will continue with our mission to proactively pursue investment leads and seek out new opportunities to showcase the country’s potential.”
The agreement aims to promote the Philippines’ capabilities in becoming a digital hub in the global business market. This will be further supported by PLDT Enterprise’s digital expertise and solutions which are instrumental to enable the growth and development of industries today.
“We aim to enhance the country’s digital prowess while exploring opportunities to co-innovate with domestic and foreign investors,” says Melvin Jeffrey Chan, VP and head of Enterprise Innovations, Business Development, Consulting & Presales at PLDT Enterprise. “Through the partnership, PEZA-certified companies can accelerate their businesses with our extensive communication network and continuously discover areas for innovation.”
“As part of our commitment to empowering businesses, we continue to expand our reach as a solutions provider so we may be able to address the various needs of industries and contribute to the country’s economic growth,” shares Vic Tria, FVP at PLDT Enterprise, during the signing.
PLDT continues to expand its international network infrastructure including investments in the Jupiter Cable System, Asia Direct, and Apricot subsea cable systems to bring world-class services here in the country. These help advance industries in their increasing digital service and technology requirements and support the country’s thriving digital ecosystem.
