In order to sustain ICT growth in province the Cebu Educational Development Foundation for IT (Cedfit) aims to strengthen the industry-academe linkage system in Cebu. Bonifacio Belen, Cedfit President mentioned that although there already exists industry-academe linkage structure, now a more active stance will be started by Cedfit to sustain Cebu's position as one of the premier ICT destinations in the world. Belen described that soon a raodmap will be formulated for a stronger industry-academe linkage in Cebu, in coordination with the National ICT Confederation of the Philippines.

Because the ICT industry is the most dynamic sector, the academe has to trail blaze with the fast changing need of industries for specialized skills, especially in high-value IT skills like programming, software development, animation, and others. This effort is not only seen to attract big-ticket investments for ICT sector, but also promote the gain of the brainy population of the country, luring Filipinos who are working abroad, to come back home, and find the stable job opportunity.
