Ulitzer Blogger Meets President of Philippines

As a leading Filipino blogger my success depends on Ulitzer to reach a worldwide audience - Inday Vinas

New Media on Ulitzer

Today, I received an email from Inday Vinas, one of our Ulitzer authors, and her photo meeting and shaking hands with Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, President of the Republic of the Philippines.

Inday writes: "As a leading Filipino blogger whose success depends on Ulitzer to reach a worldwide audience, I was a special guest of the Office of the President at Convergence 2009, a conference focused on the present and future potential of the Philippines in the field of Global IT."

Inday's blog can be found at http://indayvinas.ulitzer.com.



"The conference was held at the Fontana Convention Center, Clark-Subic Special Economic Zone, Central Pampanga, one of ten designated "Next Wave Cities" in the Philippines.

Under Macapagal-Arroyo's administration, the Philippines Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) sector has grown 100-fold, rising to $7.3 billion in 2009, with 400,000 new jobs created over the past seven years. Additionally, the Clark-Subic Zone generates almost $1 billion in exported products and services per year."
