HARI to deploy H350 vans for ASEAN delegates
To support the roadmap of “Prosperity for All,” Hyundai Philippines will serve as the official mobility partner of the 31st ASEAN Summit and ASEAN Business and Investment Summit (ABIS) from November 12 to 15.
Hyundai Asia Resources, Inc. (HARI), the official Philippine distributor of Hyundai vehicles, will deploy 50 units of the 14-seater luxury van H350 to serve the transport needs of ASEAN delegates.
“It is significant that ASEAN and Hyundai coincide in celebrating 50 years of their respective journeys toward sustainability and shared prosperity. It is even more significant that our paths should converge in the Philippines. It is a double honor to be part of this historic meeting of influential minds,” said Ma. Fe Perez-Agudo, president and CEO of HARI.
Hyundai’s presence in this year’s ASEAN Summit also signifies the company’s confidence in the buoyant investment climate in ASEAN, and in the Philippines as a gateway to regional expansion.
The event is also a challenging and momentous one for HARI, as the Korean automotive company is out to beat its own record with high-level international fora such as the 45th ADB Annual Meeting of the Board of Governors (May 2012), the ASEAN Finance Ministers Investments Seminar (AFMIS), and World Economic Forum East Asia (WEF-EA) (May 2014).
“As the official distributor of Hyundai trucks and buses, we contribute to the success of local enterprises by introducing world-class commercial vehicles to the local business community. By investing in the Hyundai Assembly Center (HAC), Hyundai recognizes the rewards of fast tracking consumer access to our vehicles while spurring the development of the local parts manufacturing sector into an indispensable player in the regional automotive chain. And our partnership with the ASEAN Centre for Biodiversity (ACB) puts Hyundai at the forefront of biodiversity conservation in ASEAN,” Agudo added.
