MANILA -- Business process outsourcing firms and exporters are thankful for the steps the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas has taken to weaken the peso this year. But they said they're still hurting from last year's 7% gain which has made them more expensive compared with their competitors in other countries.
From the P43.84-to-a-dollar finish at the end of 2011, the peso closed at P41.05:$1 last year and it's still hovering at that level at present.
