Asian Carmakers Corporation, the official distributor of BMW vehicles in the Philippines, has officially been appointed by the Philippine government as the premium vehicle partner of the 23rd World Economic Forum on East Asia (WEF-EA), which is scheduled for May 21 to 23 at the Makati Shangri-La Hotel. In line with this, ACC will provide a fleet of BMW 7-Series sedans for the visiting dignitaries.
"ACC is honored to once again partner with the Philippine government as the official premium vehicle provider for the 23rd WEF-EA," said ACC president Maricar Parco. "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."
The fleet will consist of 25 units of the 7-Series, which will be used to transport the heads of states and government leaders from across Asia for the duration of the three-day event. In accordance with the partnership, the vehicles will be turned over to the Philippine government prior to their use for the forum.
"BMW is known to deliver superior mobility performance, safety, comfort and luxury," said ACC executive director for sales and marketing Glen Dasig. "Because of these qualities tied to the brand, it has become a preferred premium vehicle provider that services significant gatherings globally including social, governmental and regional events. The 7-Series, recognized with its unmatched sporting poise and luxurious comfort in perfect harmony, is perfectly suitable for the WEF-EA delegates."
