President Benigno S. Aquino III welcomed top executives of Mitsubishi Motors Corp. (MMC), led by its company president Osamu Masuko, during a courtesy call in Malacañan Palace.

They have also donated P3 million cash in the wake of Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) to aid in the rehabilitation of affected provinces, on top of the P1 million initial donation given to the victims.

Masuko was joined by President and CEO of Mitsubishi Motors Philippines Corp. (MMPC) Hikosaburo Shibata, MMC Vice Corporate General Manager Tatsuo Nakamura, MMPC Senior Vice President Yoshizumi Karata, MMC Senior Executive Officer Morizako Chokki, MMCPC Executive Vice President Marketing Director Junya Masuda, Trade and Industry Secretary Gregory Domingo and DTI Assistant Secretary Romulo Manlapig.
