The Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA) director general Charito Plaza announced that the agency has firmed up its position not to allow online gaming firms to operate anywhere within its accredited sites across the country to protect legitimate business process outsourcing (BPO) players. Plaza underscored that gambling is not a mandate of PEZA. She said she would ask owners of all PEZA-accredited buildings not to allow online gaming firms, particularly those disguising as BPO companies, to operate within their premises. The PEZA official has already met with the BPO association and reached an agreement about the issue.
