TOKYO, June 11 2018 : Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has expressed his ambition to start a new national car project.

He pointed out that Proton, which he launched, was no longer a national car.

“Our ambition is to start a (new) national car with partners in the region,” he said, mentioning countries such as Japan, China, South Korea and Thailand.

Speaking at the 24th International Conference on the Future of Asia or Nikkei Conference, here today, Dr Mahathir said these countries were able to produce quality and marketable cars.

“We want to access world markets (with the new car project),” he added.
