ECCP Launches Initiative for Safer Roads

The European Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines (ECCP) has partnered with automotive and mobility leaders for the Safer Mobility and Logistics Conference and Exhibition designed to make our roads safer for motorists and other users alike.

The ECCP-led event, which aims to promote engagement and collaboration between private and public sectors for the stronger implementation and execution of road safety solutions, will feature panel discussions led by prominent road and logistics safety stakeholders and innovators including Department of Transportation (DOTr) Undersecretary Mark Richmund de Leon, Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) Chairman Danilo Lim, Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Bureau of Quality and Safety Officer-in-Charge Jonathan Araullo, and Automobile Association Philippines (AAP) President Augusto Lagman, among many others.

"One major cause of death are road accidents--they just rarely make the headlines," said Allan Santos, marketing manager of Bridgestone Philippines, a major ECCP partner and supporter of its safer mobility and logistics efforts. "We cannot and should not dismiss road accidents as something common. The more frequent they happen, the more we should collectively do something about it."
