- Osinbajo to Declare IT Outsourcing Conference Open
Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo is expected to spearhead efforts by stakeholders to tap into the potential of outsourcing for job and wealth creation.
A statement issued by the National Association of Information Technology-Enabled Outsourcing Companies in Abuja said Osinbajo would declare open a three-day international outsourcing conference holding in Abuja next week.
The Chairman of NAITEOC, Mr. David Onu, said stakeholders would be focusing on outsourcing as a catalyst for change, economic growth, and job and wealth creation.
Onu said, “The Business Process Outsourcing/Knowledge Process Outsourcing industry is an emerging sector that represents $1bn annual market opportunity for Nigeria with a clear potential to create a minimum of two million direct and indirect demand-driven and sustainable jobs in Nigeria within the next three years replicating what has been achieved in such countries as India, the Philippines and most recently, Egypt.
“The organisation seeks to promote and position Nigeria as an alternative BPO/KPO destination of choice to companies the world over seeking to outsource such back-end operations as contact centre operations, software development, data management services etc. to competitive alternative destinations around the world.”
