MANILA -- China's SAIC Motor is to sell its Maxus brand in the Philippines after striking a deal with local conglomerate Ayala Corp. on Monday.
SAIC is one of a number of Chinese automotive companies that are making inroads into Southeast Asian markets, which have long been a stronghold for Japanese companies like Toyota Motor, Honda and Nissan Motor.
