The province of Bacolod may not be a prime tourist destination for foreigners looking for fine beaches and exciting mountain treks, but companies abroad are closely looking at the area for something more lucrative -- business process outsourcing.

Bacolod City was acclaimed as the Most Business Friendly City in the Philippines in 2007 by the Philippine Chamber of Commerce & Industry.

The city is also considered as the Information Technology and Business Process Outsourcing hub of Western Visayas with the presence of 8 major call centers including Teletech, Teleperformance, Convergys and the newly opened Interface Techno-Phil, Inc. at the Lopue's East Center.

According to the “Philippine Cities Competitiveness Ranking Project 2005″ of Asian Institute of Management (AIM), Bacolod tops the list as Number One in terms of infrastructure, ahead of such other mid-size cities like Iligan City, Calamba City, Cagayan de Oro City and General Santos City.

Bacolod also tops the list as Number One in terms of quality of life, ahead of such other mid-size cities like San Fernando City, Baguio City, Iloilo City and Lipa City.

AIM recognizes Bacolod as one of the Top Five most competitive mid-size cities together with Batangas City, Iligan City, Iloilo City and San Fernando City.

Known for being a relatively friendly city, it bears the nickname “City of Smiles.” Bacolod City recently topped a survey by MoneySense Magazine as the “Best Place to Live in the Philippines”.
