Manila, Philippines. The Canadian Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines (CanCham) announces the 13th annual International ICT Awards Philippines that will be staged on 28 March 2019 at the Manila Ballroom, Marriott Hotel Manila in Newport Complex, Pasay City. The International ICT Awards Philippines recognizes outstanding companies in achieving excellence in ICT services. Major business organizations and high-profile business leaders in ICT including Globe and PLDT as Title Sponsors, have supported the event since its start in 2007.

Mr. Julian Payne, President and CEO of CanCham noted that “…there is increasing international competition for the provision of ICT services in a globalized economy. Philippine-based companies must ensure that they are the best to maintain their competitive lead internationally. The International ICT Awards directly addresses and supports this challenge.”
