MANILA – German luxury carmaker BMW will be deploying over 200 vehicles to service leaders and officials attending the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) meetings in the Philippines next year.

BMW will provide BMW 7 Series Long-Wheelbase Sedans and BMW 5 Series models in Sedan and Gran Turismo forms for heads of states, dignitaries, government officials, and private sector leaders attending the meetings.

BMW, which serves as the official premium mobility partner of APEC, also sponsored a fleet of BMW 7 Series Long-Wheelbase Sedans for the Informal Senior Officials’ Meeting (ISOM) held on December 8 and 9, 2014 at the Makati Shangri-La Hotel.

The vehicles served over 350 foreign and Filipino experts from multilateral organizations and national agencies, members of the academe, and various industry practitioners.

The two-day symposium streamlined priorities for next year’s conference, which carries the theme “Building Inclusive Economies, Building A Better World.”

Asian Carmakers Corporation (ACC), the official importer and distributor of BMW in the Philippines, expressed its support to the government’s efforts in setting the agenda for its host year amid the inclement weather last week.

“BMW congratulates the Philippine government for taking point in this year’s APEC ISOM. We will continue to support the endeavors of our leaders in the coming year as they tackle economic strategies in major business sectors including the automotive industry, which is poised to help spur growth in the region,” said ACC president Maricar Parco.

The Philippines will host a series of APEC meetings to be held in held in Metro Manila, Boracay, Iloilo City, Tagaytay City, Cebu, Bagac, Bataan, Clark, Pampanga, and Legazpi City in November.
