    CAMPI President Atty. Rommel Gutierrez attributed the strong February 2022 sales to the “improved consumer confidence as the country has shifted to ‘low-risk’ for COVID-19 classification,” which is a welcome development for the industry.

    “The industry is anticipating to see a continued recovery this month as the economy further reopens, downgrading to the least restrictive Alert Level 1 in major areas including the National Capital Region starting this month,” Gutierrez said.

    “As the economy reopens, the safety and health of the public is paramount to prevent another wave of virus infections and cause disruption anew to the recovery of the industry, which targets to sell 336,000 units this year – a 17-percent increase from the actual volume last year,” he added.
