Uber resumes operations in the Philippines, after paying penalties

The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board in the Philippines has lifted the one-month suspension on Uber, after the company paid almost $10 million in penalties. The suspension, imposed earlier this month, was due to the fact that Uber failed to comply with an order to stop accepting new driver applications. The company resumed operations in the country after paying $3.72 million as a penalty, and $5.87 million as financial assistance to drivers, as requested by the Regulatory Board.
