Intelenet Global Services, a leading Indian business-process outsourcing (BPO) company, eyes to invest in the Philippines some $40 million to $45 million in three years to expand its operation here.
Intelenet Executive Chairman Susir Kumar said in a news briefing on Tuesday that the company targets to expand to 10,000 employees in the next three years in the country to cater services to other markets aside from the United States and the United Kingdom.
Kumar added that the company is also looking into opening centers outside Metro Manila.

The company has invested some $15 million for the new center and is expected to double the number of its employees to 4,000.
