Proton is set to sign an Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with an Indonesian partner later today to produce an ASEAN car, according to reports from Bernama and Utusan Melayu.

Prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak reportedly said that the archipelago is interested in making the national carmaker as a partner in the project.

“Through this MoU, Proton could expand its business in Indonesia to build ASEAN cars,” the premier told reporters during a press conference with Indonesian president Joko Widodo at Perdana Putra today. “Widodo also has a number of views regarding this and has expressed interest to make this project a reality.”
