A view behind the scenes and an exchange of opinions at our Philippines location
How are German-Philippine economic relations developing, where is the country headed economically and politically and which expertise has the OEM Systems Group gained on location in the past years?
Thomas Ossowski, Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany to the Philippines addressed these topics and others when visiting the Laguna International Industrial Park. Together with Andree Buhl, Head of the Economic Department at the German Embassy, the diplomat became acquainted in detail with the modern production site of our company in the island nation during his tour on 12 July.
Roland Odenthal, Chief Executive of BAG electronics Inc. Philippines, offered the high-ranking visitor a warm welcome and used the opportunity to give the diplomat an insight into the modern state of lighting electronics. Ambassador Thomas Ossowski was highly interested in the high quality of standards for production of LED modules and LED control units produced in Laguna for global markets.
His impressions of the levels of social commitment upheld by the company in the Philippines were also highly positive. Roland Odenthal reported about various social projects, explained to the Ambassador the structure of the OEM Systems Group and also provided information about the high technological standard of the production location.
Both visitors later emphasised the impressive nature of the visit. Ambassador Ossowski will be ending his term in office in the Philippines at the end of July to return to the Foreign Office in Berlin.
