Sojitz G Auto Philippines (SGAP), the official local distributor of Geely in the country, was tapped by NLEX Corporation to be its mobility partner as it reintroduces NLEX Lakbay Norte, a media familiarization tour that aims to help the tourism industry bounce back from the pandemic by showcasing destinations and cultural highlights in North and Central Luzon.
This November, NLEX Lakbay Norte goes to Pampanga, the home of culinary and gastronomic delights coupled with fun-filled adventure and cultural finds.
“Ever since, Geely has been putting a high premium on safety for its vehicles. We’ve always been vocal about equating value with safety by putting in our minds the drivers and passengers in every vehicle we introduce to the market. We want to give them peace of mind in every Geely drive,” SGAP President & CEO Yosuke Nishi said.
“I believe, this partnership can effectively slowly revive the tourism industry in the Philippines with safe travels,” Nishi added.
For his part, NLEX Corporation President and General Manager J. Luigi L. Bautista said, “We are happy with the partnership with Geely as we both strive to provide safe and convenient travel to the public, as well as support economic recovery through tourism.”
