The Philippine government appoints Asian Carmakers Corporation (ACC) as the official premium vehicle partner for the 23rd World Economic Forum on East Asia (WEF-EA) to be held on May 21 to 23, 2014.  A fleet of BMW 7 Series will be used for servicing visiting Heads of the States and Government leaders from across Asia during the said global forum.

“ACC is honored to once again partner with the Philippine government as the official premium vehicle partner for the 23rd WEF-EA. We are delighted that our partnership with the government in efforts to boost the country’s economy including the 45th Asian Development Bank (ADB) Annual Governors’ Meeting in May 2012, is sustained and, more importantly, strengthened.  We continuously showcase our full support to the government’s undertakings in ensuring that ASEAN member countries are resilient and adept in the face of unpredictable economic challenges by providing BMW vehicles with unmatched superior performance, comfort, safety, and security,” said Maricar Parco, ACC President.

ACC is set to provide 25 units of BMW 7 Series which will be utilized for the transportation of Heads of the States and Government leaders during their period of stay here in the country. The vehicles will be turned-over to the Philippine government in accordance to the partnership.

The 23rd World Economic Forum on East Asia (WEF-EA) will be hosted by the Philippines for the very first time.
