We Will Continue To Introduce New Models, Says Proton MD

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 20 (Bernama) -- Proton will continue to introduce new models and expand significantly overseas by making inroads into Iran, China, Indonesia and Thailand soon among the current 24 markets it is already in.

"This will complement the improvements in the domestic market," its managing director, Datuk Syed Zainal Abidin Syed Mohamed Tahir said here today.

Responding to the government's decision announced today to call off negotiations for a possible alliance between the national car maker and Volkswagen or General Motors, he said Proton had been working on several initiatives even before negotiations began.

"These include new model development, quality improvements, dealer network consolidation and operational efficiency and export expansion," he said in a statement.

"We are now seeing some initial results of these initiatives, in particular the successful launch and reception of Persona, resulting in increased confidence amongst our customers and business associates as well as market share gains," said Syed Zainal.

He said Proton respects the government's decision.

Besides preservering to introduce new models in the future while meeting customers' expectations in service and product quality, efforts would continue in enhancing operational efficiency as well as dealer and vendor consolidation.

"This latest development, however, does not detract Proton from continuing its efforts to seek opportunities to enhance our product portfolio, access to markets, technology and operational efficiencies."

"All these will add value and place Proton in a better position for any potential future strategic partnership," he said.
