Ramirez leads PSC dialogue with NSAs

The Philippine Sports Commission (PSC), led by Chairman William Ramirez started a series of dialogues yesterday with interested groups who wish to air their issues and concerns to the national sports associations of their sport.

According to Ramirez, they have no plans to intervene in NSAs problem, but they want to hear the grievance of its members or stakeholders and help find solutions.

“We are here not to intervene but to listen,” Ramirez said. “What we can do is to present this to the POC and help them find a solution,” added the PSC chief.

The first dialogue scheduled were for the sports of Taekwondo and Table Tennis.  Representatives of concerned groups presented their cases, verbally and written substantiated with proof.  Ramirez promised to present them to the NSA concerned and POC “to seek their side and ask them for solutions.”

“After these series of dialogues, we will gather the complaints and information, I will discuss this with the Board of Commissioners, the Executive Director, Deputy Exec Directors, my chief of staff and four lawyers who have background in sports,” concluded Ramirez.

The PSC plans to have a consultative meeting with the Philippine Olympic Committee board this month to discuss the results of these dialogues, among many other matters.
