While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance this Office does not maintain nor collect information regarding the local automotive research activities. MIRDC only provides testing services needed by the local automotive sector in ensuring the quality of their products. On the other hand, the Board of Investment (BOI) have established the Comprehensive Automotive Resurgence Strategy (CARS) Program aiming to make the country the next automotive hub in ASEAN.
