Board of Investments (BOI) Supervising Director Ma. Corazon H. Halili-Dichosa warmly welcomes the delegates to the 22nd APEC Automotive Dialogue (AD) held on April 22-24, 2015 at the Dusit Thani Hotel, Makati City. The AD theme “Integrating SMEs into the Automotive Global Value Chains” is aligned with the Philippines’ 2015 APEC priorities of mainstreaming SMEs into global and regional production networks. She brought the attention of the delegates to the pop-up car exhibit meant to emphasize the SME’s unique and supporting role of manufacturing numerous parts and components of an automobile. The Philippines is confident that with the 2015 theme, the APEC AD Working Group will be able to come up with an action agenda that would allow more SMEs benefit from the widening opportunities in the Asia Pacific.
