This was the other award I wrote about in my previous post! To me this award is directly connected with my design team, something we can be proud of and appreciate. Indeed, after being in existence for over 10 year it is kinda strange Proton only got this accredition now. Let bygones be bygones, I do hope this won’t be the last and every year will be represented.
I was told that other manufacturers in the automotive line also vied for this accredition but did not make the cut. Probably due to intellectual property rights issues. You see, to be able to secure this award the product must display a certain amount of local / Malaysian made intellectual property. Simply put the products must be largely homegrown; designed and made in Malaysia!
I’m glad Proton won this award as it shows what we’re capable of. I’m glad to be part of the team that designed the two winning cars. But most of all I’m glad this accredition came at this point in time. Couldn’t have been more perfect… 😉
As for next year, the new Saga perhaps?
