THE Chamber of Automotive Manufacturers of the Philippines Inc. (Campi) announced it will hold the 5th Philippine International Motor Show (Pims) from September 18 to 21 at the World Trade Center in Pasay City.
The prime industry-led motor show in the country brings together 16 top automotive brands that will showcase their latest vehicles, services and technologies. Set to participate are BAIC, BMW, Daewoo, Honda, Isuzu, JMC, Kia, Lexus, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Peugeot, Suzuki, Toyota, and Volkswagen.
Campi said that this year’s Pims carries the theme “Progress in Motion,” highlighting the local automotive industry’s role in propelling the country toward greater mobility and economic growth.
“Pims has always been more than a motor exhibit,” said Campi President lawyer Rommel Gutierrez. “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.”
Campi noted that in the first four months of 2014, the local automotive industry’s sales went up 22 percent from last year—when it breached the 200,000-unit level, or a record high of 212,000 units in total sales. The organization explained that 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.
Campi said exciting concept and prototype cars, automotive photography, scale-model exhibits, car club convention and test-drives are just some of the attractions that car enthusiasts, prospective car-buyers, automobile business owners, and for everyone who want to keep themselves abreast with the Philippine automotive scene, can look forward to at the 5th Philippines International Motor Show. Following the theme “Progress in Motion”, the 5th Pims will also feature a special display of iconic vehicles that exemplify the historical evolution of the country’s auto industry, according to Campi.
