E- vehicle group defends DTI


The Electric Vehicle Association of the Philippines, the organization of electric vehicle manufacturers, assemblers, importers, dealers, suppliers and enthusiasts said the Department of Trade and Industry has been working with the industry to accelerate its development and put EVs in the mainstream of public transport. Multisectoral civic groups earlier claimed the DTI neglected its duty to significantly reduce vehicle emissions under the 1999 Clean Air Act (Republic Act No. 8749). EVAP added that in many ways, through its initiatives in the EV industry, the DTI has been helping the country achieve its CO2 emission reduction targets by promoting and attracting investments in clean energy, renewable energy, electric vehicles and the like.
