Aegis video pits Malaysia’s infrastructure versus the Philippines’ in bid to attract BPO business!

It seems the Philippines has been singled out by a company in Malaysia as its single biggest competitor for investment in the region. A promotional video produced by a Aegis Malaysia, a global business process outsourcing (BPO) company makes a pitch to its clients to locate their BPO needs in Malaysia by highlighting that country’s business-friendly environment and superior infrastructure. It does this by directly comparing Malaysia to the Philippines.

A certain Elcid Lao posted the video on Facebook where it elicited heated discussion.

The user included the following caption in his post:

This is the most Unethical Ad ever made. We filipinos are aware of it. But please do not directly destroy our image. Just simply broadcast the pros in your newly selected site. No need to name drop. The calamities that are happening are just a fraction of a percent of the entire year. We are aware of our government to which reforms are starting to be made but we can never control nature. Such a shame on you Aegis.

The video has also been shared on YouTube here.

In the video, the narrator asserts that “Malaysia is becoming the preferred alternate to the Philippines and is fast emerging as the ultimate destination for multinationals,” after citing the disadvantages of locating in countries where there is “inadequate infrastructure”, “an unfriendly climate for smooth operations”, “less security”, and “lack of government support”.

The Philippines was also cited as a location prone to natural disasters owing to its situation along the Pacific Ring of Fire and along the path of tropical storms. All of these were said in the video to contribute an adverse “impact to business operations” as well as “bloat” to the cost of living. The video then continues on to highlight the advantages of Malaysia as an “investor friendly” environment thanks to its government’s flexible policies and “less bureacracy”. According to the video, all these, combined with stable governance diversity in culture, and abundance of lifestyle perks, Malaysia is made out to be a “perfect balance of business and pleasure.”

The timing of the emergence of this video is interesting considering that (1) Philippine President Benigno Simeon ‘BS’ Aquino III happens to be in Europe as of this writing pitching the Philippines to potential investors and (2) Typhoon Fung-Wong (Mario) had recently hit Metro Manila leaving it paralysed with its floodwaters, again highlighting the challenges to business continuity as a result of years of neglect, rampant corruption, and underinvestment in essential infrastructure.

Will Filipinos see this video as another cause for acute butthurt? Or will we see this as a confronting call to action directed both at our government officials and politicians and, more importantly, to ourselves.

Stay tuned and, of course:

Abangan ang susunod na kabanata.

Those butthurts again. What’s wrong with the video, by the way? The points cited are actually VALID. And they’re not namedropping, people. They’re just telling the truth – the truth Filipinos refuse to accept because for those fucking stupid Pinoy pride shit-eating scumbags, Filipinos are are the greatest!

Oh, and by the way, it has never been unethical to say the truth whenever you advertise a product, or a company. Remember, guys – TRUTH in advertising.

true, but only for the parts which humans can affect. but that quake thing? didn’t they know a LOT died from that? does a philippine BPO country post “come to philippines, we don’t lose planes here”? it IS a wakeup call, and a damn good one. but i’m not a believer of using natural calamities against a country just to make your host country “mas mabango”

How will not complaining help? I don’t get it really, you corelate complaining about it to our state of our affairs when it is not, but hey my solution really is to educate, tell people that what the ad says is not ok, that we should demand more from our governmemt and that we should be less complacent about demanding more from our goverment and really what the ad is saying is true, but at the same time we shouldn’t allow this corp, to malign us, it opens the door for us to be called “running dogs, or slaves” like… Read more »

And labeling people won’t help and getting on a high horse won’t really get whatever message you guys want to convey, which defeats whatever “altruistic” purpose you guys seem to believe in,

Dick S. O'Rosary
Guest

Somehow I think that you’re just imagining things when you say that this would open a door for us to be called running dogs and slaves. First of all, I can’t connect an ad highlighting the advantages of Malaysia and the disadvantages of the Philippines as something that would involve “slavery”. Second, I think its more shameful to balat-sibuyas than it is to be a slave. Really, I think that the reaction of most people to this was just way over the top, borne by our misplaced “pride”.

Dick S. O'Rosary
Guest

Third, I can’t see how it is unethical. So ok, the ad made the Philippines look bad, but thats really it, and I still see it as “business is business” and as Teki puts it, sourgraping. Its not like Aegis was directly out to slander the Filipinos as a nation. I was prepared to leave it at that. But I think the Malaysian government has appeased you already, or its not enough?

@Dick – Aegis Ltd, the HQ for Aegis Malaysia issued a clarification and an apology sometime tonight. It came from the Indian management, and that should suffice. The PHL embassy in Malaysia overreacted when this is not a country-to-country issue. This should be taken as a business issue. (Where is Ben Kritz when you need him?) To everyone, I stand by qualifying that the investor video “does connote a degree of sourgraping”. I think that phrase places an emotional interpretation for some people, which is a mistake on my part because i could’ve been clearer. For me, sourgraping is similar… Read more »

Sa client presentation nila lang dapat ito pinapakita or during a talk or speech… very unprofessional and unethical gesture from Aegis – mapa-BPO man or other industry ka galing.

This should be seen as a call to action and as a source of “pride”. This country was picked as “the competition”, the benchmark as you may. Instead of being butthurt, we should just take it in stride and work, and improve. We should also see this as “constructive criticism”. For example the phrase used in the ad: ‘disadvantages of locating in countries where there is “inadequate infrastructure”, “an unfriendly climate for smooth operations”, “less security”, and “lack of government support”.’ Very well tell us where we need to improve in if we want to attract more foreign investment.

One good step: Set up a hotline that foreign businessmen can use if a government employee tries to extort money by withholding permits and Titles.

Again grp already has the concrete solutions. They can’t be materialized because YOU are part of the problem you hard-headed dimwit.

Caps lock ang ginagamit pag hinde naiintindihan ng kausap ang sinasabi. Baka kasi maliit ang font at hinde mo mabasa ng maayos. Ako iiyak? Baket ako iiyak when I’m living a far more better life than you? The more I look at it, galit ka sa ibang post mo kasi miserable ang buhay mo at gobyerno ang sinisisi mo. nag uubos lng aq ng oras dito kasi boring mag debug ng program. Pampalipas oras ko lang kayo.

Padamihan ng pera = pataasan ng ihi. Typical dysfunctional mindset of da pinoy. Looks like his mindset is nothing but money and thinks that money = power.

The ad is not surprising. No wonder why a lot of foreign factories have been transferred to other ASEAN countries.

You do know the factual milieu why the 60\40 requirement was placed in the 1985 constitution??

Oh boy here comes the communist accusation to me again. Look I have no problem with people with decent jobs as long as that person is not very abusive just like what you’re doing right now.
