170 Russians on incentive tour in Cebu

A CONTINGENT of close to 200 Russians is now in Cebu for a three-day incentive tour.

This was disclosed by Russian Federation Consul Armi L. Garcia, who said the group is composed of exactly 170 executives, employees and dealers of Megaphone — the biggest telecommunications company in Russia who flew in from Moscow via a chartered flight.

The tour, according to Garcia, is actually part of Megaphone’s incentive or reward package for its employees and dealers who have made exceptional accomplishments for sustaining the success and growth of the cellular company.

As part of their tour itinerary, the Russian visitors went straight to watch the now-famous Dancing Inmates perform at the Bagong Buhay Rehabilitation Center upon their arrival Monday. They are scheduled to fly back home on Thursday.

The Russian delegation, headed by Megaphone president Igor Maistrenko, was awarded Tuesday night by the Philippine Russian Business Assembly (PRBA) at the White Gold House where the PRBA also paid tribute to Maistrenko in a simple awarding ceremony for bringing his people to Cebu.

“Mr. Maistrenko should be given due recognition for choosing Cebu as Megaphone’s incentive tour destination,” said Garcia who is also president of the PRBA. “This incentive tour does not only denote Megaphone’s firm commitment to help business relations between the Philippines and the Russian Federation but Mr. Maistrenko’s support to the Assembly as well.”

“The visit is indeed a most welcome development as we celebrate 35 years of Philippine Russian relations this year,” Garcia added.
