Proton To Be On Par With World's Top Carmakers
The national carmaker has proven its sceptics wrong by doing what it should do best, and that is the business of making and selling cars.
Launching of the highly-popular Proton Persona and the new Saga models has changed the company's dwindling fortunes.
The company is now present in 24 countries including in the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, Thailand and Singapore.
Analysts feel the company can double its overseas shipments to 40,000 units next year, aided by new models such as Persona, Saga and its latest edition, new multi-purpose vehicle, due for launch by March next year.
Currently, the company exports 2,000 units a month, working out to 24,000 units a year.
The crucial "ingredient" for its current success has been "offering the right car at the right time and at the right price." Credit should be given to managing director Syed Zainal Abidin Mohamed Tahir, who since taking over the helm in 2006, has been working tirelessly to push forward such a strategy that has thrust Proton on the right track to regain its share in the local and foreign automotive markets.
***** A very optimistic analysis indeed, isn't it?
