MANILA, Philippines - Good news for the business process outsourcing (BPO) sector.

SAP, one of the world's largest software companies, says it is expanding its operations here in the Philippines.

On the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Makati, Adair Fox-Martin, newly appointed president of SAP Asia-Pacific and Japan, said they will establish a small "call center" operation in the country which would open up sales and marketing jobs.

"We will start off with a small nucleus and double it and double it as it continues to grow. Approximately, 50 staff in the first instance," she told ANC.

SAP has set up its human resources department in the Philippines, which caters to all its employees around the world.

The multinational company has been in the country for 15 years. - ANC
