Proton has clarified that it’s US$24 million Cikarang plant in Jakarta is not for sale. Proton Managing Director Syed Zainal Abidin Syed Mohamed Tahir said The Jakarta Post’s report is inaccurate, and Proton plans to ramp up it’s presence in the country in both transport and retail markets.
This requires a assembly facility to prepare for the ramp up in Indonesian Proton car sales. Achmad Safiun, Commissioner of PT Proton Edar Indonesia says PT Proton Edar Indonesia is very proud of Proton’s confidence in the Indonesian market, and will work to make Indonesia one of Proton’s best markets in the region.
