Second Finance Minister Tan Sri Nor Mohamed Yakcop said if the second round of the most recent attempt at negotiating the Proton-Volkswagen partnership deal is successful, we will be able to hear some positive news by the end of this month.

“Insya Allah, we hope the discussions with Volkwagen now entering its second stage will be successful and we will in a short time be able to say something on the progress of the talks,” he said.
