The Proton Waja
Malaysia's only domestic automaker is trying to ramp up production to 5,000 units a month to meet increasing demand.
The spokesman said that 200 local suppliers were responsible for designing and producing parts, and that production costs have been reduced through domestic R&D.
Domestic design and development, combined with efforts to penetrate Asian markets, make up Proton's strategy to improve its competitiveness ahead of greater domestic market liberalisation, the government official said.
