MANILA, PHILIPPINES—ABS-CBN Global, Ltd. is among the business “gems” recognized by the Optical Media Board (OMB) for being a compliant exporter in the Philippines, in the recently held “OMB Appreciation Night” at the Winford Hotel in Sta. Cruz, Manila. For two consecutive years, the company was recognized for adhering to OMB’s mandate of securing licenses and permits before exporting content, which is part of the Philippine agency’s efforts in regulating the production, use, and distribution of optical media.
OMB Chairman and CEO Atty. Anselmo Adriano said: “You are truly the gems of OMB. Your compliance and support of OMB’s mandate is greatly appreciated. It is no secret that regulating the businesses involved in optical, magnetic and other storage devices is not an easy job. This is the reason why we give recognition to those who had been religiously compliant.”
