“EVAP, together with our partners and other stakeholders involved in this much-awaited conference, has decided to make this adjustment in support of the national government’s pandemic response program,” said EVAP president Edmund Araga.
“PEVS is all set to stage its second virtual summit this year, but we are one with the rest of the industry is cooperating with efforts to curtail the further spread of this dreaded coronavirus,” he added.
This year’s two-day event will involve in-depth discussions on policies, experiences, and best practices to promote the use of electric vehicles, particularly in the public transport sector.
Keynote speakers from different government offices who believe in electro-mobility as viable transportation were invited to the event. A memorandum of understanding to fast-track the switch to e-vehicles from fossil-fuel-fed machines will be among the highlights of the 9th PEVS. In addition, PEVS also drew support from the British Embassy of Manila for the first time.
