Omoda And Jaecoo Executives Hold Dialogue With Philippine Consulate, DTI On Sustainable Motoring

Chery International’s General Manager of East Europe & Asia Pacific Region, Jeff Liu, led an executive delegation from Omoda and Jaecoo to the Philippine Consulate General in Shanghai. There, they engaged in discussions with Philippine Ambassador to China, H.E. Jaime FlorCruz, and the visiting Undersecretary of DTI from the Philippines, Dr. Ceferino S. Rodolfo. The dialogue centered on the development and plans of Omoda and Jaecoo in the Philippines. As emerging brands with core competitiveness in the automotive sector, Omoda and Jaecoo are set to integrate technological innovation and global resource advantages to foster the development of the Philippines’ new energy automotive industry.

Sustainable and green mobility were the focal points of the discussion. In the Philippine transportation industry, carbon emissions account for 28 percent of the nation’s greenhouse gas emissions. In response, the Philippine government is promoting the electrification and encouraging market-driven actions for electric vehicles.

The strategies of Omoda and Jaecoo for future-oriented technology leadership and green, low-carbon development align with these initiatives.

During the talks, the Philippine Undersecretary of DTI, Dr. Ceferino S. Rodolfo, acknowledged the determination and actions of the Omoda and Jaecoo brands in the field of new energy. He stated, “With abundant nickel and lithium resources, the Philippines holds a resource advantage for new energy vehicle brands looking to invest and establish manufacturing bases, and will provide corresponding policy support. We hope to deepen our energy advantages with Omoda and Jaecoo’s expertise in automobile manufacturing, to jointly stimulate the robust growth of the new energy vehicle industry.”

General Manager of East Europe & Asia Pacific Region, Mr. Jeff Liu, expressed gratitude for the recognition from the Philippine government representatives. He shared the developmental achievements of Chery International in the Philippines over the past four years and the future strategic plans of Omoda and Jaecoo. Mr. Liu emphasized, “We will actively respond to the Philippine government’s drive to modernize the automotive industry and transform green mobility. We will continue to explore the implementation of new energy technologies, empower our products with high performance and energy efficiency, adhere to the concept of technology inclusiveness, and create affordable electric vehicles for the people of the Philippines.”

Omoda and Jaecoo are set to establish subsidiaries in the Philippines and organize a localized core team. This team will encompass various business segments including brand promotion, product research, network development, and aftersales services.

Currently, Omoda has been launched in 15 countries and regions worldwide, including the Philippine market established last year. This year, the cumulative export sales volume has already surpassed 130,000 units. Jaecoo also started laying out its global marketing network from July this year and is set to land in the Philippines in 2024.


  1. Omoda and Jaecoo's sister brand Jetour is already doing well in selling EVs in the Philippine market while Chery did sell dozens of Tiggo 8 Pro PHEV already since its launch..Mild hybrid Tiggo 5x Pro started to do well while Tiggo 7 Pro Mild Hybrid just needs more cash discounts.

  2. Doing well and selling ??? i will wait for next month official figure posted here to be sure that its selling 5 units per month.

  3. This Omoda Jaecoo is going to nowhere in its direction plan in the local market. They are expecting too much success of its vehicle lineup. Still ICE cars are the best and reliable source of transportation. Plus the fact that its price is expensive I don't think it's worth waiting for.

  4. It's really funny how the Chinese would go at lengths to "conceal" their Chinese-ness.

    I mean come on, the name Omoda is definitely pretending to be Japanese while Jaecoo is pretending to be Korean.

  5. Dont even knew how to design a logo, changan logo is an inverted acura
