Froilan Valencia – the Sales head of Volvo Philippines has mentioned their concerted efforts in bringing Volvo XC60 to the country. As the number of units produced is limited and the demand is high, regarding international markets, it’s rather difficult for Philippines to have adequate items in stock. However, our Volvo agency did it. Though not many, the available volume can partly serve the thirst of domestic market.
