Over 300 specially commissioned BMW 7 Series, BMW X5, and BMW 5 Series vehicles are set to traverse key thoroughfares of Metro Manila and Pampanga as part of the 30th and 31st Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Summits and meetings happening in the Philippines this 2017.

BMW’s official distributor and importer in the Philippines, the Asian Carmakers Corporation (ACC) was recently awarded by the Philippine government as the official premium mobility partner of the ASEAN Summit this year. The vehicles will be used by the leaders and ministers from the ten ASEAN-member countries as official vehicles during the year-long event.

“We are truly honored to play an integral role in the ASEAN 2017. As the preferred premium vehicle provider for ASEAN Summit 2017, we strengthen our commitment to support government projects that drive economic growth and social progress for the benefit of the local automotive industry, the Filipino people, and the Asia-Pacific Region,” said Asian Carmakers Corporation Chairman Emeritus Gov. Jose Ch. Alvarez.

Riding on the theme “Partnering for Change, Engaging the World,” this year’s Summit puts emphasis on subjects such as people-centered initiatives, peace and stability, maritime security and cooperation, inclusive and innovative-led growth, ASEAN resiliency, and ASEAN as the model of regionalism. The ten ASEAN countries, which include Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam, will be joined by ASEAN dialogue partners from China, Japan, South Korea, and the United States of America.
