Back ground of conclusion of MOU

The Makati city aims at the spread of environment-friendly vehicles in order to the achievement of standard of "the Clean Air Act" that is the air-environment improvement laws and ordinances that the government established. However, it is difficult for the vehicle user to acquire financing support because of the lack of bank credit, so user cannot replace gas exhaustion vehicle and that is a one of the biggest problem in the Philippines. The conclusion of the MOU is part of the recognition that service offered by GMS is indispensable because to solve the issue of credit, and to promote the replacement from conventional vehicle to a low environmental load vehicle, there was little down payment at the time of the vehicle use, and bank credit inspection was omitted in comparison with the conventional vehicle purchase model.
