Philippines.- The Asian industry continues to grow and companies are getting more and more opportunities to take advantage of it. That’s why ASEAN Gaming Summit is a major event in the gaming agenda and has just confirmed a major presence.

PAGCOR CEO Andrea Domingo has confirmed she’ll attend ASEAN as a speaker. The head of Philippine gaming regulation is a major addition to the lineup, as described by the organisers.

“She is truly one great addition to our strong speakers list,” the ASEAN team explained. “She’s the top person in the Philippine gaming regulation”.

ASEAN conference promises to give plenty of opportunities for delegates to form new business contacts and partnerships.

Ms. Domingo will give an opening address on March 18 to discuss casino developments in the country. Moreover, she’ll talk about the authorities’ approach to iGaming.

Regulatory moves

As they had already advanced, Philippine authorities want to slow down the iGaming segment. They won’t issue any more permits, in order to prevent the industry from an “overburden”.

The Philippines keeps growing and online gaming isn’t the exception, that’s why PAGCOR wanted to take necessary action.

At G2E Asia, PAGCOR chairwoman Andrea Domingo explained the decision. “We don’t want to overburden the industry by blatantly giving out licenses,” she said. “The President declared a ban on IRs and casinos in January 2018 and we have observed that. He lifted the ban in Clark last year and we have observed that too, but even the Clark region is saturated.”

“Even in Clark, we have stopped acceptance of any applications for new casinos,” she added.

We’ll see what PAGCOR’s head has to say at ASEAN after a few weeks of the new year.
