THE Philippines was named the worlds best country in business English proficiency, even beating the United States, according to a recent study by GlobalEnglish Corporation.
This is particularly interesting because the Philippines, a country with one-tenth of the population of India, recently overtook India as a hub for call centers. Over 400,000 Filipinos are now employed in call centers, roughly 50,000 more than in India, the study said.
The Philippines, which scored 7.11 and the lone country in the intermediate level, were joined by Norway (6.54), Estonia (6.45), Serbia (6.38) and Slovenia (6.19) in the top five.
GlobalEnglish noted that a countrys business English capability is an indicator of its economic growth and business success.
