April 27, 2019 News

ECCP, as the official Philippine representative of Messe München, arranged a welcome meeting for the members of the Philippine Delegation and the organizers of BAUMA last April 9. The delegation was led by DTI Undersecretary Rowel Barba who also supervises the Construction Industry Authority of the Philippines (CIAP). Usec. Barba was also joined by Philippine Trade and Investment Center (PTIC)-Berlin Commercial Counsellor Althea Antonio, officials of the Philippine Overseas Construction Board, Philippine Contractors Association (PCA) and notable construction companies in the country.

One of the objectives of the mission is to promote inward investments to the construction equipment manufacturing facilities in the Philippines. The visit to BAUMA was also in time for the recent launch of the Construction Industry Roadmap 2020-2030, with the theme "Tatag at Tapat 2030", which ensures the sustainability and competitiveness of the construction and infrastructure development in the Philippines.

Bauma is the world's largest construction machinery trade fair with 614,000 sqm of exhibition space, 3,700 exhibitors and 600,000 visitors from 200 countries. The next edition is scheduled on April 4 - 10, 2022 at Messe München Fairgrounds, Munich, Germany.
