Philippines included in China’s overseas gambling blacklist, Zubiri says

China has placed the Philippines on its overseas gambling blacklist. Senate President Juan Miguel Zubiri made the announcement during a Senate inquiry into Philippine offshore gaming operations (POGOs). Chinese Ambassador Huang Xilian shared the information with him during the courtesy call on Monday, October 10. China had long expressed its opposition to POGO, citing it as a “threat” to social order. Beijing first announced it had such lists in August 2020 and later added additional spots in January 2021. It is not immediately clear when China included the Philippine on the overseas gaming blacklist, though it has not been made public.
