The Philippines hosted from 12th July what was billed as Asia’s largest gathering of online gaming stakeholders, with Chinese expatriate workers increasingly under the spotlight.
The 3-day Phil-Asian Gaming Expo or PAGE included 30,000 gaming entrepreneurs and 200 exhibitors. It marked the public debut of 1,000 online games, products solutions, and peripheral products, according to a statement announcing the event.
Chinese nationals have begun working in the Philippines, catering to compatriots who engage in online gaming back home. This drove demand for residential and office space around so-called POGOs or Philippine Offshore Gaming Operations sites.
