First-Ever Philippine Auto Parts Expo Happens Starting Tomorrow


The Philippine Parts Maker Association (PPMA), with the support of the Department of Trade and Industry – Board of Investments (DTI-BOI), is presenting the 1st Philippine Auto Parts Expo (PhilAPEX) at the Philippine Trade Training Center (PTTC) on October 12-13, 2017.

The PhilAPEX is being held to (a) showcase our local auto parts manufacturing capabilities, (b) present the gains from the two CARS Program Participating Car Makers’ (PCMs) implementation of their respective investment plans, and (c) provide the opportunity for a B2B networking among part makers and vehicle manufacturers.

Additionally, PhilAPEX will feature the locally-developed eco-PUV prototypes for the DOTr’s PUV Modernization Program. This follows the DTI’s earlier announcement that the CARS’ 3rd slot budget will be shifted to eco-PUV manufacturing, among others, to jumpstart the development of the Philippine commercial vehicle (CV) sector.

Under the theme “Gawang Pilipino, para sa Pilipino”, the expo will showcase the capability of the local parts making sector. Exhibitors will include auto part makers, while the two PCMs: Mitsubishi Motors Philippines Corporation and Toyota Motor Philippines Corporation, will present the status of their respective CARS projects. Prospective eco-PUV Program participants will exhibit some 14 eco-PUV prototypes.

The 1st PhilAPEX featuring the CARS Program and eco-PUV Prototypes event gates will be open to public on October 12 (Thursday) from 1 PM to 5 PM, and October 13 (Friday) from 10 AM to 5 PM.
