The Filipino Consumer On HD: Kantar Media Philippines’ Presentation
“Twenty percent of Filipinos are extremely happy and 40 percent see themselves having better lives in the future. Barring calamities, the general outlook of Filipinos for the first quarter is good. We can attribute that to our resiliency, our indomitable spirit or our capacity to smile even when confronted with heavy burdens.” — Bong Osorio, Corporate Communications Head, ABS-CBN, columnist, Philippine Star
Yesterday, Kantar Media Philippines, which provides audience measurement services which help quantify an advertiser’s efforts, held a meeting wherein they presented stats and facts outlining how Filipinos choose to spend their money, as well as how happy Filipinos are.
The meeting, which was held in Makati Shangri-La, featured interrelated studies presented by Gabriel Buluran, the general manager of Kantar Media Philippines. The studies gave a picture of the interplay of how the Filipino people spend, the prevailing fiscal climate, as well as our current outlook on life, as a nation. As Bong Osorio mentioned in his article,
“They are attempts to look at the Filipinos in high definition, to put things in perspective, and make us better understand the Filipino consumer.”
