With a common goal of improving the Philippine motoring experience, Metro Pacific Tollways Corporation (MPTC) has signed up as a sponsor of the 2016 Car of the Year – Philippines search, organized by the Car Awards Group, Inc. (CAGI).
Established in 2004, the CAGI is the longest-running organization of motoring journalists in the country today. Unlike other award-giving bodies, CAGI prides itself of holding annual test fests, where all vehicles for consideration go through identical qualitative (consumer) and quantitative (performance) testing. Each year, winners for each category are announced, and from that winners pool emerges the year’s COTY-P and TOTY-P.
The MPTC is part of the Metro Pacific Investments Corporation umbrella, and is the largest toll road concessionaire and operator in the Philippines. Its operations span from the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) to the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX), Cavite Expressway (CAVITEX), and the Cavite-Laguna Expressway (CALAX).
