Nissan Motor Philippines Inc. (NMPI) provided a fleet of its executive sedan, the Nissan Teana, for the use of the dignitaries at the 12th Asean Telecommunications and Information Technology Ministers Meeting (Telmin) and the 13th Asean Telecommunications and Information Technology Senior Officials Meeting (Telsom) held on Mactan Island, Cebu, on November 11-16.
As the official vehicle provider of the five-day event, NMPI, through Mantrade Development Corp., turned over a total of 17 Teana 2.5L units in diplomatic black color to the Information and Communications Technology division of the Department of Science and Technology, organizer of the events and the government’s lead agency on ICT-related matters. The vehicles were used to transport information technology and telecommunications senior officials from 10 Asean member-states and dialogue partners from China, India, Japan, Korea, the European Union and the International Telecommunications Union.
“NMPI is honored to take part in this auspicious event as the official vehicle of the delegates. We recognize that the 2012 Telsom and Telmin gatherings serve as important venues in helping the different countries, including the Philippines, to realize the significance of ICT in this fast-changing world as one of the leading economic drivers,” NMPI president and CEO Allen Chen said.
Earlier this year, Teana was also named the official luxury transport partner of the 2012 Philippine Wine and Food Week last October 8-14 at the New World Hotel. The festival offered its guests with the best taste of the world through bringing in wine makers and gourmet experts from most celebrated brands in one venue. The recent event was the eighth year of the festival, which boasted 200 fine wines from various regions. Gourmet booths, on the other hand, served variety of high-quality cheeses, homemade breads and other food items.
