CIMA, ICTA in MoU to promote BPO industry
CIMA, Sri Lanka and the ICTA (Information and Communications Technology Agency of Sri Lanka) have signed a MoU to help foster the business process outsourcing (BPO) industry in Sri Lanka.
The future wealth creation for most of the developing world is slated to be through knowledge based industries. Business process outsourcing brings with it not only foreign direct investment but also provides significant opportunities for the creation of a large number of skilled jobs, CIMA said. Under the MoU, ICTA will work with CIMA to facilitate national interest programmes related to the BPO industry and will also facilitate and partner in CIMA’s BPO Investment Forum to be held in January 2008. ICTA will also provide resource personnel to create awareness within the current CIMA student population to promote the BPO industry and its potential amongst current students.
