Abstract

Study of the Malaysian automotive policy has always been an interest for both local and international researchers. Malaysia which is a relatively small and young country, to have its own automobile manufacturing company should be a pride to every Malaysian. However the effectiveness of the national policy has always been discussed by the academic scholars, business entities and even often being debated by the politicians. This study will look on the policy analysis of the Malaysian National Automotive Policy whether it has successful to achieve its objectives. The main objective of the National Automotive Policy which was implemented in 2006 is to promote a competitive and sustainable domestic automotive industry especially the Malaysian national automaker company, particularly Proton.

The relationship between the national programme and the industrial development to the economic growth in the Malaysian automotive industry will be looked into.
