Balisacan shares this failed small talk about PCC
It’s during these moments when he realizes how little known his new agency is.
Chairman Arsenio Balisacan of the Philippine Competition Commission (PCC) had a story that was too funny not to share on social media. While he may be the usual quiet, unassuming official, the politiko just had to share this anecdote about someone who was apparently misinformed about the PCC’s tasks.
The sad part was that the other party was also a government worker who held office in the same building. The two exchanged pleasantries and when Balisacan said he was from the PCC, the other official asked: “Oh, so what sports are you promoting?”
As I introduced myself to a government official from another agency housed on the same building:
Me: I am with the Philippine Competition Commission.
Government official: Oh, so what sports are you promoting?
