Daewoo Bus aims to contribute to the solution by offering a better and safer means for people to commute,” shares CMANC General Manager, Mario Regis. “We would also aim to take a way the belief of most of our kababayan that imported vehicles have better quality than those assembled and manufactured locally. With the world-class skills of our local workforce, we have no doubt that the vehicles we produced can compete globally. So it’s time we patronize something that is our own.”
“We encourage Filipinos to patronize locally produced buses as it helps support the employment of thousands of workers. We have always believed that CMANC is not merely a vehicle manufacturer, but a transportation solutions provider.” Mr. Regis added.
