You might have heard that BAIC is returning to the Philippine market under United Asia Automotive Group Inc. (UAAGI). While its public launch will take place during this year’s Manila International Auto Show, the Chinese state-owned brand has officially settled down on Manila soil to preview its SUV and crossover offerings.
