By Fitri Hazim Hazam

SHAH ALAM, May 24 — The state government said it will work with Putrajaya to explore opportunities and improve the original design manufacturing field by empowering local talent.

Menteri Besar Dato’ Seri Amirudin Shari said the state’s cooperation with Malaysia Automotive Robotics & loT Institute (MARii) also aims to develop the field of integrated circuit design, which supports the growth of critical components for the Malaysia Semiconductor Accelerator and IC Design Park: Selangor Hub.

“During my visit to the Malaysia Autoshow 2024 yesterday, recognised as the largest international automotive exhibit, MARii chief executive officer Azrul Reza Aziz briefed me on MARii’s readiness to explore this cooperation, which is set to generation economic returns of RM500 million to RM1 billion,” said Amirudin in a Facebook post.

In the same Facebook post, Amirudin congratulated MARii and the Investment, Trade and Industry Ministry on the seventh iteration of the autoshow, which is being held at the Malaysia Agro Exposition Park Serdang until Sunday.

“This exhibition does not merely highlight the latest vehicle models, but visitors can enjoy a variety of attractions and activities, such as tracks for test drives, four-wheel drives and military vehicles,” he said.
