ABOUT THE SUMMIT

The NATIONAL ICT CONFEDERATION OF THE PHILIPPINES (NICP) is the national umbrella organization of all about 70 ICT Councils in the Philippines strategically operating in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao, linking provinces and cities to the world.

The ICT Councils are basically composed of local stakeholders from local governments, business and industry sector, academe and human resource sector, working together to promote their respective locations as investment destinations for ICT-related industries and jobs.

Since 2008, NICP assisted the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT), formerly CICT and ICTO-DOST, conducts annual national ICT summits in key cities throughout the country. In these summits, participants comprise of many local government units, with the hundreds of representatives from the line agencies, colleges, universities, and companies. ICT Councils and LGUs converged to review, evaluate, plan and share best ICT practices.

Another highlight of the SUMMIT is to offer a variety of locations for ICT-related direct foreign or local investments, or joint venture arrangements, particularly in voice and non-voice global services, HR, back-office support, shared services outsourcing, finance and accounting, research and development and knowledge process and creative process outsourcing (game development, animation, multi-media and advertising), health information management, medical coding, billing and transcription.
