Hyundai Asia Resources, Inc. (HARI), the official Philippine distributor of Hyundai vehicles, officially opened today its 41st dealership in Silang, Cavite. Hyundai Silang is the sixth Hyundai dealership under the helm of Hyundai Alabang, Inc. led by Dealer Principal, Mr. William Chiongbian II.
Hyundai Alabang, Inc. has two decades of partnership with Hyundai with its dealerships south of Metro Manila through Hyundai Alabang, Hyundai Las Piñas, and in the southern Philippines with Hyundai San Pablo, Hyundai Naga City, and Hyundai Southern Mindanao.
Cavite is one of the Philippines’ most populated, industrialized, and fast-growing provinces. Thanks to its reliable road network, the province makes for a popular weekend getaway from the congestion and heat of the Metro. While Silang, which is a thriving agricultural hub and a real estate and eco-tourism destination place on the rise is integral to development efforts south of NCR.
“Today, we stand at the front lines of a new revolution in our struggle to overcome the devastating impact of COVID-19. We at Hyundai are one with the people of Silang in restoring and revitalizing local businesses,” said HARI President and CEO Ma. Fe Perez-Agudo
For his part, Mr. Chiongbian reiterated his group’s commitment to providing the Silangeños Hyundai’s signature #BetterJourneys in Sales, After Sales, and Parts: “We are here to help move people and businesses and, ultimately, contribute to driving the much-needed economic recovery at the municipal, provincial and regional levels. We put our extensive portfolio of safe and reliable vehicles and the skills, hard work, and dedication of our employees to the service of the Silangeños in the New Normal.”
The newly-opened dealership boasts of an elegant and convenient space designed for eco-friendly operations, meeting the global standards for Hyundai dealerships the world over. Through Hyundai’s Guidelines for Protection and Safety (GPS), customers are assured of a safe and secure environment. GPS is HARI’s pioneering program to COVID-proof its operations by establishing globally and locally-prescribed safety protocols to safeguard the wellbeing of customers and employees alike.

Ms. Agudo further revealed that amidst the many challenges and shutdowns that the local auto industry faces, Hyundai has emerged most resilient—and consistently aggressive in expanding into the country’s emerging growth hubs. “On our 20th year in the business, we continue to grow as one Power Forward company in 2021,” said Agudo.
