“The Philippines, with its growing aviation sector, offers a prime market for ST Engineering’s advanced MRO services,” the DTI chief said

He said the collaboration aims to enhance the aviation capabilities of the Philippines, benefiting both countries through shared technology and expertise.

The Philippine delegation also presented the potential for ST Engineering to extend its smart city technologies and offerings to improve urban living conditions and sustainability in the country.

The meeting concluded with a tour of ST Engineering’s Innosuite, showcasing their cutting-edge innovations in smart mobility, cybersecurity and urban solutions.
