GAMES and Amusements Board (GAB) Chairman Abraham “Baham” Mitra will talk about “Professional Sports in the Philippines” in the 20th virtual session of the Philippine Sports Commission National Sports Summit on Wednesday.

Mitra will give a better understanding of the directives and limitations of the GAB as the sole government agency mandated to regulate and supervise professional sports and games.

Mitra was a former member of the House of Representatives representing the Second District of Palawan for three consecutive terms until 2010 and served as governor until 2014. He also served as the Presidential Consultant for the province from 1998 to 2000 under former President Joseph Estrada.

“We would like to thank Chairman Mitra for accepting our invitation. This is a good opportunity for our participants to have an in-depth understanding of professional sports and how it is different from what we do here in PSC for amateur sports.” PSC Chairman William Ramirez said.
