Known for its extreme comfort, durability, and reliability, the Grand Starex is always been one of the country’s best-selling large family van. Therefore, it shouldn’t come as a surprise when the Hyundai Grand Starex has been chosen as the official mobility partner for the annual Asian Development Bank (ADB) meet.
Hyundai Asia Resources, Inc. (HARI), the exclusive distributor of Hyundai vehicles in the Philippines has provided no less than 50 units of its legendary Grand Starex to transport 4,000 delegates from 67 ADB member countries attending the 45th Asian Development Bank Annual Meeting of Board of Governors.

This is the first time the Philippines is hosting this meet.
With the theme “Realizing Opportunities through Good Governance and Partnerships: An Inroad to Inclusive Growth and Development,” the meeting shall showcase the country’s resilience amid global financial uncertainties, it’s strong commitment to enhancing public-private partnerships, and the best of Filipino culture, products, services, and industries.

Fe Perez-Agudo, “HARI and ADB-led Philippine agency, the Department of Finance (DOF) have and continue to engage in a thoughtful and meaningful partnership that enables the advancement of Philippine investment and development goals anchored on shared sustainable governance principles.
