Motorcycle Development Program Participants Association Welcomes New Board For 2024

The Motorcycle Development Program Participants Association, Inc. (MDPPA), a consortium of leading motorcycle brands in the Philippines, recently entered a new chapter in its efforts to empower motorcycle industry stakeholders as it welcomed its newest Board of Directors, who reiterated their commitment to promoting global competitiveness and sustainable development for the industry.

The newly inducted Board of Directors are Kawasaki Motor Philippines Corp.’s Alexander Cumpas as President, Honda Philippines Inc.’s Erwin Estrada as Vice President, Yamaha Motor Philippines’ Gilbert Bilagantol as Treasurer, and Suzuki Philippines Inc.’s and former MDPPA president Norminio “Boying” Mojica as Auditor. Department of Trade and Industry Usec. Ceferino Rodolfo officiated the induction of the new officers.

Under Mojica who served as MDPPA president from 2021 to 2023, the association was able to support industry stakeholders through a robust response and recovery program for the motorcycle industry to address the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on the industry.

The MDPPA was also able to collaborate with different government agencies, motorcycle industry stakeholders, both locally and from the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, facilitating dialogue on how they can uplift the motorcycle industry in the region.

“I am very confident that with the leadership of our incoming President Mr. Cumpas, the association will be able to accomplish even more as we continue to proactively serve the needs of the motorcycle industry’s stakeholders,” said Mojica.

Newly elected President Cumpas expressed a renewed commitment to the goals of the association and said the new officers will continue to work hard towards a brighter future for the motorcycle industry.

This will be done through open and continuous collaboration with stakeholders from the motorcycle and corollary industries, aiding industry regulators in the development and implementation of policies and guidelines that are relevant to the ever-changing needs of motorcycle users, and pushing for economic policies that will promote the growth of the industry, among others.

“We shall ensure that the motorcycle industry is well-placed to benefit from even more investment in production, bolster the domestic supply chain, and ensure people with the right skills are available to support a growing industry,” said Cumpas.

On its 50th anniversary, MDPPA remains steadfast in its commitment to proactively address the needs of the industry as well as global industry gaps in road safety, regulation compliance, environmental protection, and technology innovation.
