"The government wants to enhance capacity, and as you know, the automotive industry is under-utilised. Competition has become very stiff now that Asean has become one big market," he told reporters on his last day in office prior to retirement on December 5.
Abdul Rahman said now that the consolidation study, by Frost & Sullivan, on Proton Holdings Bhd and Perusahaan Otomobil Kedua Sdn Bhd was complete, the next stage would be for stakeholders to sit down and discuss the best way to implement it.
