Majority of the new SUVs were already used during the ASEAN summit.
There is no denying that there is a shortage of vehicles and equipment in the Philippine military and police force. But with the generosity of Japan and the dedication of the current Philippine administration, our military and police forces are slowly getting the help they need.
On November 10, 40 SUVs were given by Japan to the Philippine police force, which were used during the recent ASEAN summit in the said country. Four of these vehicles were giving to the Highway Patrol Group (HPG), three to the police security protection, three were given to Mindanao, while 30 of the said vehicles were given to the NCRPO.
Aside from the 40 SUVs, Japan also decided to donate five leased aircrafts to the Philippines. The aircraft were first rented out to the Philippines, but Japan decided to cancel the lease agreement and donate them to the Navy instead, Director Arsenio Andolong, DND spokesman, said. All retired patrol and monitoring trainer planes of Japan’s Maritime Self Defense Force, these TC-90s were initially leased by Tokyo to the Philippine government at a token price.
