Philippines says will lift Uber suspension if hefty fine paid

00:12
The Philippines said on Friday that it would lift the suspension on Uber if the company pays a fine of 190 million Pesos, but this is 20 times greater than what Uber had wanted to pay (10 million Pesos).

00:27
The country also wants the company to pay its drivers 20 million Pesos every day to support them financially during the suspension.

00:37
Uber responded by saying they will work hard to meet the terms of the suspension so they can resume operations as soon as possible.

00:47
Uber ceased operations after the Philippines regulator LTFRB ruled they broke the law against accepting new driver applications, but the company says they were not involved in accepting those applications.

01:03
The Philippines says the fine was calculated from the number of suspension days (19 days) and the average daily income of the company (10 million Pesos).

01:12
Because Uber is very popular there and is considered better than local services, there has been a large increase in demand for rival Grab, and long queues of angry people outside many buildings.

01:27
Filipino Senator Grace Poe says she is trying to bring the two sides together to fix the problem, which could be possible after an Uber executive apologized.

01:40
However, the senator says that the company must consider government regulations if it wants to continue operating there in the future. Uber is currently challenging.
