Celebrating the special bond
Isuzu Malaysia’s Chief Operating Officer, Kenkichi Sogo, who flagged off the convoy in Kuala Lumpur, said that the event allowed dealers to engage with owners yet be able to celebrate the special bond that Malaysians enjoy.

“While our aim was to create a meaningful Merdeka celebration this year among our dealers and D-MAX owners, we also wanted to celebrate this sense of unity that is so unique and apparent in Malaysia with a unified activity that transcends borders,” said Mr. Sogo.

Other activities for participants
After the parade, participants of the Merdeka Convoy 66 enjoyed a day out with fellow owners with various programmes organized for them by their respective dealerships. Some of the activities included a visit to a durian farm, a short off-roading course, an afternoon at the beach, rainforest resort and a shopping mall.
