President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. visited the automotive manufacturing plant of Toyota Motor Philippines Corporation (TMP) and the manual transmission plant of Toyota Aisin Philippines (TAP) at the Toyota Special Economic Zone in Santa Rosa City, Laguna.
Toyota Motors Corporation (TMC) Chairman Akio Toyoda, along with TMP’s local officials led by Chairman Alfred V. Ty, welcomed the President for a tour of the facilities.
These world-class facilities showcased the technologies and highly-skilled workforce that are currently producing two local models: the Vios and Innova. Soon, they will be producing the next generation Tamaraw — Toyota’s PhP4.4 billion investment recently approved by the Philippine government.
After the tour, the President held a meet-and-greet session and a private meeting with the TMC and TMP officials.
The President’s visit coincided with the 35th anniversary of TMP operations in the country which began in 1988. Over three (3) decades, TMP has reached significant milestones in vehicle production and sales as it fulfills its mission to be a major contributor to national development as a mobility company.
