LOCALLY PRODUCED BMW CARS IN MALAYSIA


by - Hesmel Faznee Faisal

Salam to fellow bloggers and readers of this self indulgence yet pitiful blog!

I feel proud of being a “Kulimman(a terminology coined by me as a reference for a person who hails from Kulim, Kedah Jose!) after reading the news here

According to BMW Malaysia, they are planning to maximize the number of locally installed BMW cars in Malaysia by producing more units through its factory in Kulim, Kedah. It is indeed a proud achievement for us, Malaysians especially those Kulimman who works in the factory.

Indirectly, it proves that investors have high confidence and fate on Malaysians with their ability to produce more BMW cars locally. For the record, all cars produced by companies namely BMW, Mercedez, FIAT etc. maintains a very high standard and prestige amongst the range of luxury cars.

I am confident that one day Proton, being Malaysia’s first locally produced car can work on a joint ventured project with BMW to roll out a better and higher quality standard of Proton cars.

I think this was one of the reasons why Tun Dr Mahathir had insisted on carrying on with the Proton project when he became the Prime Minister.

The first Prime Minister of Malaysia, the late Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj was the person responsible with the idea of Malaysia producing and manufacturing its own cars, in a speech delivered during a ceremony to officiate the opening of the first Dunlop tyre factory in Shah Alam, back in the mid-60s.

Without doubt both men (the late Tunku and Tun Dr Mahathir) have provide for us greater opportunities to learn more and acquire knowledge in producing cars and creating more jobs for them at the same time. It's up to us to be part of it or fought against it.

Of course Proton would not be able to survive on its own if the sales of cars lie only for Malaysians.  Judging from this we should project Proton as the window of opportunity and become a catalyst for Malaysia to venture into a bigger market, especially on a joint venture project with establishing companies. BMW is one of them.

I am placing my bet on Proton that they would be able to do it.
