Country's top automotive brands head to the center stage
The Chamber of Automotive Manufacturers of the Philippines, Inc. (CAMPI) is all set for the 5th Philippine International Motor Show (PIMS) in September.
PIMS will be held at the World Trade Center in Pasay City from Sept. 18 – 21 with the theme of 'Progress in Motion', highlighting the local automotive industry’s role in propelling the country toward greater mobility and economic growth.
It will feature the country’s top automotive brands to present their latest vehicles, services and technologies.
Automotive brands such as BAIC, BMW, Daewoo, Honda, Isuzu, JMC, Kia, Lexus, Mazda, Mercedes Benz, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Peugeot, Suzuki, Toyota, and Volkswagen will be part of the 5th PIMS.
"PIMS has always been more than a motor exhibit. This year, it serves as our platform in conveying how the automotive industry is a vital player in the Philippines’ thriving economy. The industry's robust performance in the past two years is also proof that we are progressing toward better mobility and transportation," said CAMPI President Rommel Gutierrez.
The 5th PIMS will also feature exciting concept and prototype cars, automotive photography, scale-model exhibits, car club convention, test drives and many more.
According to CAMPI, in the first four months of 2014, the local automotive industry sales were up 22 percent from last year. Moreover, 2013 marks an important milestone for the industry as it breached the 200,000 level, achieving a record high of 212,000 units in total sales.
The introduction of new models and promotion packages has led to the positive sales performance and has given the automotive industry improved consumer confidence.
"The 5th Philippine International Motor Show is also the perfect venue to show that CAMPI is one with the government in driving economic progress." Gutierrez added.
