Proton will establish its first facility in South Asia in the form of a factory in Pakistan.
The plant will be a joint effort between the Malaysian automotive Proton and their local partner Al-Haj automotive.
The news was shared by the high commissioner of Malaysia to Pakistan Ikram Mohammad Ibrahim, reported Bernama.
Both Proton and Al-Haj signed the agreement last year as the Malaysian automotive giant sees great potential in the Pakistani and South Asain markets.
In terms of the potential of the Pakistan auto market, Proton feels it is big. That’s why Proton has agreed to work with Alhaj to build an assembly plant near Karachi in the Sindh province. This is significant because it will be Proton’s first plant in South Asia and the population of this country alone is 210 million -Ikram to the Malaysian media at the High Commission of Malaysia office in Islamabad
