MANILA, Philippines — Davao-based businessman Dennis Uy on Thursday faced for the first time the Senate’s inquiry on the entry of the third telecommunications (telco) player in the country.

Uy is chief executive officer of Udenna Corporation, which is part of Mislatel Consortium recently named as the country’s third telco player.


The  venture includes state-run China Telecommunication and Chelsea Logistics Holdings Corp.

Among those who confirmed their attendance  at the resumption of the hearing of the Senate committee on public services include Mislatel Vice President for Corporate Affairs Adel Tamano, officials of two giant telco firms, Globe Telecom Inc. and Smart Communications Inc., and members of the academe, among others.


Concerned government officials have also confirmed their attendance like National Economic and Development Authority Director General Ernesto Pernia, Securities and Exchange Commission Chairperson Emilio Aquino, National Telecommunications Commission Chairperson Atty. Gamaliel Cordoba, and Bureau of Internal Revenue Commissioner Caesar Dulay.

The third hearing of the committee chaired by Senator Grace Poe will tackle Mislatel’s compliance with the 90-day post  qualification review given by the government.  /muf
