WTO Panel Report in Thailand – Customs and Fiscal Measures on Cigarettes from the Philippines


12th July 2019, a World Trade Organization (“WTO”) Panel upheld the Philippines’ claims that Thailand violated WTO law on customs violation. The dispute initiated by the Philippines in 2008 affects Philippine exports of cigarettes to Thailand.  Trade and Industry Secretary Ramon Lopez said that “this WTO dispute has been going on for more than ten years now, Thailand has lost all three panel and appellate rulings, and it is about time that Thailand accepts the rulings and implement the customs valuation reforms called for by those rulings.”

This decade-old dispute between Thailand and the Philippines concerns Thailand’s persistent failure to value Philippine exports consistently with the WTO’s Customs Valuation Agreement (“CVA”).  These measures threaten the viability of the private sector both in the Philippines and in Thailand, harm Philippine tobacco farmers, and are inimical to the overall export interests of the Philippines. It also places bilateral relations on a sour note. Mr. Lopez notes that “Thailand is a strong supporter of the WTO multilateral trading system, and currently chairs the WTO General Council. Thailand is also ASEAN host for 2019. Accepting the panel report in this dispute would be a clear demonstration of Thailand’s responsibility and leadership in the WTO and in ASEAN.”

This dispute was initiated by the Philippines in 2008, and is still ongoing because of Thailand’s repeated allegations of under-declaration of the customs value of cigarettes, which are all based on valuation determinations consistently ruled as illegal under WTO rules.  And these unlawful measures threaten criminal prosecution and even the imprisonment of a number of employees of the importer in Thailand, Philip Morris International Thailand (PMTL).

Thailand has now lost three WTO panel proceedings: 
  • In the original proceedings, a WTO panel and the Appellate Body ruled in 2010 that the Thai customs valuation measures violated the CVA and other WTO rules. 
  • Following this ruling, Thailand brought further new, WTO-inconsistent customs valuation measures against Philippine cigarettes and filed criminal charges against PMTL for under-declaration.  The Philippines successfully brought a first set of WTO compliance proceedings; in November 2018, the WTO compliance panel found that the new customs valuation measures and the first criminal charges violate the CVA. 
  • While these proceedings were ongoing, Thailand issued a second set of criminal charges, forcing the Philippines to initiate second WTO compliance proceedings.  This latest WTO panel ruled on 12 July that these second charges also violate the CVA.  
Thailand has yet to implement the WTO rulings, amend its customs valuations policy and practices, and withdraw the two criminal charges which based, in the first instance, on WTO-illegal measures

The LBC Foundation is proud to have also partnered with other non-profit foundations that have brought hope and joy to Filipino children.

The LBC Foundation provides free shipping and delivery for the school supplies, backpacks, computers, printers, tablets, and all other materials that the Yellow Boat of Hope Foundation sends to school children all across the country.

LBC believes that it is important to establish a benchmark not only in business but in community and nation building as well.

SCHICK HYDRO 5 SENSE – Experience Customized Shaving Like Never Before


SCHICK has established it’s own niche in the industry as one of the pioneer when it comes to smooth shaving.

2019 marks a very important year for SCHICK PHILIPPINES, as it launches it’s latest and most advanced razor to date – The Schick Hyrdro 5 Sense.

Chit Itchon, Global Marketing Director for Men’s Shaving at Edgewell Personal Care said: “We know that not all skin is the same and that guys take pride in finding products that address their specific skincare and grooming needs.”

A guy’s grooming routine is more art than science, and no one’s grooming routine is the same.  The new Schick Hydro® 5 allows us to provide maximum comfort while helping to protect from irritation in a truly unique and customized way.”  Itchon added.

The New Schick Hydro 5 Sense, the next generation of Schick razors is packed with five (5) unique and useful features designed to create a personalized shaving experience like never before.

The unique “Shock-Absorb Technology” enables the razor to give an incredibly close shave. The mechanism inside “senses” when pressure is exerted on skin while shaving and basically auto-adjust to the pressure.  The razor blades backs off when you apply too much pressure and adds pressure back when needed.  It allows you to shave the right amount of contact and pressure. When the pressure goes away, the razor returns to its original state. Schick Hydro 5 Sense is also designed to adjust to the contour of your face and your personal shaving style.

The “Lock-out Button“ is another special feature.  It is located at the neck part of the razor. The button enables and disables the shock-absorb function as simple as sliding the it up and down.

The Schick Hydro 5 Sense comes with US made 5 slim surgical steel blades with Skin Guards on top of each blade. This doubles the number of point of contact between the blades and the skin between the blades; which is designed to help control the skin flow to reduce skin irritation.

It also has the unique 7 Hydro Glide Gel Pool designed with herbal extracts that protects and instantly hydrates skin for a smoother glide while shaving.


Last of it’s feature is the “Flip Back Trimmer”.  Schick Hydro Sense 5 instantly transforms into s trimmer with simply flicking back the top of the razor.  This help gives precise trimming.

SCHICK HYDRO 5 SENSE is the first and the only razor customized for him.  Based on Consumer Insights: 43% liked on how razor automatically adjust based on how you shave.  31% liked the idea of the hydrating gels and lubricated gels, 31% liked the idea that the razor is customized to their skin and their routine and 32% liked the promise of confortable shave with less irritation.

With the New Schick Hydro 5 Sense, having a smooth and confortable shave is now a reality.  An innovation that is set to change the playing field of the razor industry.

Top 10 Tips on Winning in PUBG Mobile by Vivo Malaysia


Kuala Lumpur, 10 July 2019 – The PUBG MOBILE Malaysia National Championship (PMNC) Grand Finals will be held at Quill Convention Centre, Jalan Sultan Ismail, Kuala Lumpur from 13 to 14 July 2019 where 12 teams will battle it out for RM114,000 in prize pool.

Vivo, as the global Official Smartphone of PUBG MOBILE Club Open 2019 and Official Partner of PUBG MOBILE South East Asia National Championship is sharing the following protips to help Malaysians to improve their game:

1. Do Not Wear Shoes.

There are plenty of shoes to be gotten from the crates after you trade in your BP or UCs, but none of them good for your game. Not wearing shoes actually decreases the noise you make when you run or scurry about and the enemy can’t hear you that well. Notice your enemy’s footsteps are so loud, that’s how loud you are when you wear shoes in the game.

Plus not wearing shoes does not affect your running or movement performance, so there’s no downside, just a great advantage.

2. MK Mutant or AKM?

Most player’s favourite assault rifle (AR) is the AKM which uses 7.62mm bullets has stopping power but too much recoil that messes up your aim. PUBG added a new assault rifle into the game this year, the MK Mutant, which has the same stopping power, uses the 7.62mm bullets but much less recoil and has much smoother handling compared to the AKM.

The Mutant is a rare AR but you can get it at most hot landing zones such as Military Base, Mylta Power, Georgopol and the Prison.

3. How To Use The Flare Gun?

Once in a while you might come across a flare gun in the game, we would urge you to pick it up. When you shoot a flare up, a cargo plane will fly by and drop off some rare supplies like an AWM sniper rifle or a Gilly Suit.

But beware, other players can see the flare too so they’ll be heading to your location to grab the loot. In this case, pick a strategic location near the cargo and take out other players when they arrive one by one.

4. Teamwork.

If you’re playing the squad version where you are randomly setup with three other players, make sure you work together and not go rogue. You need each other to back you up, cover for you when you are searching for loot and outflank the enemy.  If you get shot or knocked out to be exact, your teammates can revive you and vice versa.

Make sure you use a first aid kid or bandage your wound after being revived, don’t worry, plenty of those to be collected throughout the game.

5. Headphones Or Earphones?

It doesn’t matter, just use a good quality headphone or earphone and it will help you to pinpoint where your enemy is as PUBG does have amazing audio. For instance, if you hear a gunshot to your right ear, the shooter is located to the right. It’s as real as it gets.

6. To Voice Chat Or Not?

PUBG offers an in-game voice chat with your team, with controls to turn off the mic or speaker for voice, or adjust the levels. If you don't want to be distracted by noisy chit-chat, turn it off but team text chat will always be on and non-intrusive.

7. Best Urban Combat Weapon Combo.

In our experience, beginners would do well to arm themselves with a shotgun, the S686 double-barrel to be exact, with an AR. The AR/shotgun combo is pretty effective during urban combat scenarios, which is where you will end up one time or another in the game.

The S686 has major stopping power and takes out a player using only Level 1 body armour with one shot. Level 2 easily with 2 shots. Very useful for the final shootout but only if you are up-close with your enemy. Usually in the final shootout, it’s good to have an AR with sniping abilities which brings us to…

8. The Versatile M416 Assault Rifle (AR).

Arguably one of the best ARs available in the game, even better than the AKM or M16A in our book. It allows for some of the best performances in close quarter combat scenarios and can be used for sniping over long distance, 600 metres to be exact!

Trust us, that’s more than enough range and causes real damage. Uses 5.56mm bullets just like the M16A or SCAR-L ARs but after testing them all in various scenarios, the M416 wins hands down as one of the best all round AR.

9. Accesorise.

Talking about sniping, you’ll need the 6x or 8x scopes which you’ll search for during gameplay but don’t worry, there’s plenty of them around, in hot zones such as the Military Base, Mylta Power, Georgopol or towns such as Pochinki and Rozhok.

Red Dot or Hologram scopes are everywhere along with angled foregrips (should your gun require it) which, attached to your weapon would decrease recoil and increase it’s performance. Don’t worry about how identify them the mobile version of the game will automatically pick them up and attach them to your weapons during gameplay.

10. Use The Right Device.

Finally, and this is the most important part of the game, use the right device like the Vivo V15Pro, equipped with a Snapdragon 675 chip paired with a 8GB RAM, which allows the game to run in high settings without any issues. Its AI helps manage the RAM you use during gametime. The more you play, the more it knows to allocate more processing power and memory to your gaming.

Slim and lightweight, the V15Pro’s Super AMOLED display has 100% P3 color gamut coverage, ultra-high color saturation and lower power consumption, bringing you a world that's more vivid and clear. Find out more about the Vivo V15Pro here http://bit.ly/2XPyOdv.

Bonus Tip: Learn From The Pros!

Head over to Quill Convention Centre this weekend and see how the pros do it. They are the players in the country taking part in the growing E-Sports industry and you can learn a lot from their slick moves.

We’re quite certain, that with a Vivo V15Pro and applying the tips we shared above, you and your team will be on your way to winning that yummy chicken dinner.

Kuala Lumpur, 9 July 2019 – The upcoming Vivo S series smartphone has revealed its rear visuals. According to the visual, the series comes with an AI Triple Camera which is similar to the recent V15 series and Y17 series.

The AI Triple Camera, now a new trend for smartphones, might have a reasonable sized Main Camera, Super Wide-Angle Camera and a Depth Camera.

As a reference, the Vivo V15 Pro’s AI triple camera is equipped with 48 Million Quad Pixel Sensor main camera, 8MP AI Super Wide-Angle Camera and 5MP Depth Camera while Y17’s AI Triple Camera packs a 13MP Main Camera, 8MP AI Super Wide-Angle Camera and 2MP Depth Camera.

Meanwhile, as the visual shows no rear fingerprint, which means the phone comes with the In-Display Fingerprint scanning technology that Vivo was awarded one of the “Best Innovations for Android Phones in 2018” by Android Authority.

As can be seen from the visual, the colour options are Diamond Black and Skyline Blue. Whilst the black always goes with anything and anyone, the Skyline Blue is aimed at being the younger, brighter and fashionable colour option.

SINDAK 1941: A FILIPINO MUSICAL BRINGS TO LIFE THE STRUGGLE FOR FREEDOM AND LOVE


Philippine Stagers Foundation, a professional mobile theatre company from Manila presents an all original musical about love and the struggles of the Filipinos during World War II, under the Japanese regime, written and directed by Atty. Vincent M. Tanada and music by Pipo Cifra.

The dates of performances are from July 11, 2019 to March of 2020. The musical will be shown in select theatre venues all over the Philippines.

The Story:

This is a story about the resiliency, sufferings and sacrifices of the Filipinos during the Japanese occupation in the Philippines being told through the eyes of four intertwined souls, brothers Felipe and Nestor, and their love interests Sofia and Emilia, respectively. The story will be narrated by a mute wanderer Tata Edong.
The difference between the brothers was very obvious in the onset, Nestor was more successful in school, and eventually he used all the things he learned in school to start a very successful shoe making business. On the other hand his older brother Felipe ended up ploughing the fields. Eventually they will realize the impact of the war, that everyone is a victim, and that it spares no one.
A quick look in our history would tell us, ten hours after the bombing of Pearl Harbour, Intramuros, Manila was decimated. The occupation of the Japanese led to the formation of HUKBALAHAP. USAFFE experienced a beating from the Japanese forces resulting to General Douglas MacArthur’s departure to Australia together with his troops. The remnants of the defenders of the Philippines were forced to march to their deaths in Bataan.
In these trying times the star-crossed lovers will traverse the challenges of Japanese tyranny, meeting an array of colourful characters such as the brothel owners Mauricia and Salvacion, and the father and son rebels, Gorio and Pancho. They will showcase the resilience of the Filipino spirit and prove to the world that despite all the odds, our freedom is fought by and won by the Filipinos. The brothers will go on their separate journey as a collaborator and a freedom fighter. This musical will fill in the gaps of our history and pay homage to all the unsung heroes of our land.
SINDAK 1941 will show the adverse effects of war and how morality is twisted just to survive.

The Philippines is the apex of the Second World War and the end of it is the turning point that would spell success or failure between the ruling powers. The Battle of Leyte Gulf is arguably the biggest Naval Battle in history. The two pairs will play major parts in this tragic battle.
