Now this is how you end the second quarter, the first half, of 2013: In a flurry of activities, in a buzz of excited talk. The past week, auto manufacturers and distributors gave the press—and the public—a taste of how the rest of 2013 would roll. Fast and furious would be a good way to start describing it.

Beauty pageants are big in the Philippines. Majority of the mothers of the previous generation may have wished their daughters end up as beauty queens. My mother is no exception. She did everything to bring me up unscathed, flawless, able to express my opinions and exposed to different designers that can help push me to that direction. I did exactly the opposite, participating in contact sports that got me heavily exposed to the sun, getting marking cuts and bruises from biking and running as far away as possible from being a demure and poised candidate. If it’s any consolation to her, I was – and still am – opinionated.
The first week of April 2013 proved to be a very significant one for Eurobrands Distributor Inc. (EDI), official importer and distributor of Peugeot vehicles in the country. Apart from several planned key marketing activities that were designed to increase the French marquee’s in the Philippines, a few pleasant surprises also sprung up to make it a truly memorable winning week for Peugeot.
French automaker Peugeot announced Monday that it was returning to Vietnam with the creation of a distribution network and local production of its 408 model along with a Vietnamese partner, Thaco.
Eurobrands Distributor Inc. (EDI), official Peugeot importer and distributor, has announced its support for and intent to join the Caltex 2013 STV Auto Rally Corporate Challenge (ARCC). The ARCC, patterned after the “Tulip Rally” popularized in the 1960s, is an “on time, all the time” activity that does not promote speed as much as is does adherence to common road rules and laws.
