The weeklong special of CNN on its segment ‘Eye On the Philippines’ put boxing champ Manny Pacquiao in its elite list of national hero.
The list is based on the infographic which is a summary of facts about the Philippines. Story on national hero is extracted from the report on the ‘next Pacman’, also one of the topics discussed in ‘Eye On’.
The international news network initially aired its in-depth report about the Overseas Filipino Workers in the Middle East. There are also special reports on the poverty, ‘next Pacman’ and growing demand of the Philippines in call center company, thus tagging the country as ‘call center capital of the world’, which actually outnumbered those in India.
Also included in the weeklong special are interviews to the known business conglomerates, the brothers Zobel de Ayala – Jaime Augusto and Fernando – of the Ayala Corporation, and President Benigno Aquino III.
The special started to air from April 30 to May 4 to more than 280 million households around the world, and can also be watched at www.cnn.com/eyeon. ###batch natano
