“While some issues such as the long-term availability of semiconductor chips still persist, but we are able to secure enough so that our fourth quarter performance would be the best in our history,” said Perodua’s President & CEO, Dato’ Sri Zainal Abidin Ahmad.
He explained that the increase in production was achieved with available resources within current automotive ecosystem, hinting at its growth potential for both demand and supply side of the industry.
