CTO to support Nigerian BPO
The Commonwealth Telecommunications Organization (CTO) will help Nigeria explore the global IT outsourcing/Business Process Outsourcing industry estimated to be worth over USD600bn.
The Chief Executive Officer, CTO, Prof. Tim Unwin, said the organisation was ready to provide support for Nigeria in policy formulation and regulation development in order to be able to tap into the global BPO industry.
Recently, the CTO noted that this is increasingly a focus of national planners for economic growth.
“It makes immense sense for Nigeria to consider promoting this sector. If the country decides to do so, the CTO is in a position to feed in to the policy and regulation development drawing on the lessons of a number of global BPO/ITES leaders such as India, Sri Lanka and Mauritius,” CTO said.
