MVP companies lend support

Speaking of the papal visit, Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co. chairman   Manuel V. Pangilinan, or MVP, is lending his support to make the Pope Francis’ stay in the Philippines a success.

The companies of Indonesian tycoon Anthoni Salim in the telecommunications and power sectors will put up new voice and data lines in archbishop’s offices and provide mobile and satellite phones and other relevant communication facilities in several places that the Pope will visit, including Tacloban City.

Manila Electric Co. is also making sure that the places where Pope Francis will stay are free from brownouts.

Despite his strong involvement in the papal visit, Pangilinan said he would not push his way to get a chance to personally meet Pope Francis.

“If I’m lucky or fortunate to meet him, of course if will be great privilege,” Pangilinan said.
