MAJOR PROGRESSIVE DEVELOPMENT FROM THE PROTON AND SUZUKI COLLABORATION INKED ON 15 JUNE 2015








SUBANG JAYA, 14 January 2016 – PROTON Holdings Bhd ("PROTON") and SUZUKI Malaysia Automobile Sdn Bhd ("SUZUKI") are entering a key strategic move in the collaboration that was announced in June 2015. Twenty five (25) 3S and four (4) 4S SUZUKI dealership outlets are now converted as PROTON Edar outlets.



All the twenty nine (29) outlets will be outlets which will have both the PROTON and SUZUKI logos. These outlets, although have been recognised to be part of PROTON Edar outlets, will continue to have the ability to provide service and repairs for the existing 48,000 SUZUKI customers in Malaysia. The new set up also provides opportunity for the SUZUKI dealers to expand their business to include Proton cars.



“The industry is aware that SUZUKI is going to end sales of its own brand models in the Malaysian market after theMemorandum of Understanding and License Agreement were signed between the three parties, PROTON, DRB-HICOM and SUZUKI on 15 June 2015. The rationalisation of SMA operations was originally expected to be completed within a year but it has progressed earlier than planned to realise the next phases of the partnership. Today, I am happy to announce that the collaboration is seeing the first of many exciting milestones and providing PROTON with the advantage of additional dealers network, vendors, skilled manpower, platform sharing and technology know-how,” said Dato’ Abdul Harith Abdullah, Chief Executive Officer of PROTON.



“Suzuki Malaysia Automobile is proud to have worked alongside and served our amazing partners and customers here in Malaysia over the past decade. The consolidation of SUZUKI’s existing showrooms with PROTON further strengthen the synergy between both brands ensuring the constant delivery of automotive after-sales services that our customers are accustomed to.” Said Mr. Masashi Fukuda, Managing Director of Suzuki Malaysia Automobile echoing the same sentiment as Dato’ Harith.



“The existing Suzuki car owners can be rest assured as their automotive needs such as the after sales services and warranty coverage with the use of genuine Suzuki parts will continue to be managed and covered. They can continue to send their cars to these outlets which are strategically located across Malaysia,” continued Mr. Masashi Fukuda.



Under the collaboration, Suzuki, which is strong for its technology and expertise in producing smaller engine segments, especially in the A and B segments categories would complement PROTON’s long range product plan. The development of this collaboration gives PROTON the opportunity to tap into SUZUKI’s strengths, which will result in the maximising of volume potentials, reduction in development lead time and expedite time-to-market. This can be achieved through the technology sharing and the ability to maintain cost efficiency in collaboration with SUZUKI.



“We are happy that the Malaysian government supports such collaboration as it is also in line with the National Automotive Policy (“NAP”). NAP promotes strong and renowned global automotive player like Suzuki, to be a collaboration partner to PROTON. The collaboration will provide PROTON the opportunity to grow internationally, leveraging on SUZUKI’s presence worldwide while PROTON continuously develop and produce cars that meet international standards and requirements,” Dato’ Harith added further.



"SUZUKI is known to be a good partner. For example, SUZUKI's partnership in India with Maruti grew from strength to strength. In 2014/15 alone, their market share was 45%. We are confident that PROTON and SUZUKI will foster similar or even stronger bond," said Dato' Harith.



“The collaboration will also see the assimilation of good and best in class practices. As SUZUKI exits Malaysian market, it displays genuine commitment to make this collaboration successful according to the agreed terms. In that, PROTON is honoured to be part of its several successful partnerships worldwide and we look forward to a more fruitful journey in our transformation initiatives to increase market share,” said Dato’ Harith.



SUZUKI has already ceased its production line in Malaysia and as part of the collaboration, PROTON has access to SUZUKI talents, models, platforms, powertrain and other automotive technology. SUZUKI will then provide specific technical assistance for the products while it leverages on PROTON’s vast local distribution and service network for its rebranded cars.



SUZUKI is a renowned global automotive player and is the third (3rd) top sales automotive company in Japan and has presence via production plants in 21 countries. What more to say, SUZUKI has also sold approximately 3 million cars in a year globally with 1.2 million cars coming from India.



“With the additional twenty nine (29) new 3S & 4S outlets, this will add to the strength to the New PROTON in providing enhance quality facilities at all our sales and after sales services outlets nationwide,” ended Dato’ Harith.

Start of production of the collaborative product is expected before end of 2016.

Perihal Elaun Keraian Kakitangan Kerajaan

ELAUN KERAIAN
BAGI pegawai-pegawai kerajaan gred 43 ke atas, mereka di peruntukkan dengan elaun keraian yang merupakan sebahagian daripada pendapatan mereka. Elaun minima RM400 sebulan di kecualikan daripada cukai pendapatan.

Imbuhan Tetap Keraian yang diberikan kepada pegawai dalam Kumpulan Pengurusan Tertinggi dan pegawai tertentu dalam Kumpulan Pengurusan dan Profesional merupakan elaun yang dibayar atas kadar tetap secara bulanan.

Tujuan pemberian Imbuhan Tetap Keraian adalah sebab jawatan dan tanggung jawab pegawai memerlukan mereka meraikan tetamu bagi mewujudkan suasana ramah mesra. -- FAQ SSM oleh JPA

Namun pada kebiasaannya, Imbuhan Tetap Keraian ini hanya digunakan untuk meraikan diri sendiri ataupun keluarga sendiri sahaja ataupun untuk membayar hutang-hutang peribadi sahaja.

Andai kata ada tetamu yang datang ke pejabat dan mereka di jamu, itu adalah dari perbelanjaan pejabat. Malahan ada pejabat yang membayar makan minum tetamu yang diraikan di hotel/restoran menggunak…

#SIAPA_ARAH_BUNUH_ALTANTUYA?

(By: Ariff Ahmad)
Walaupun Kerajaan Australia telah bersetuju untuk membenar Sirul dibawa pulang ke Malaysia tetapi reaksi Mahathir terhadap isu tersebut adalah seperti dia tidak berminat untuk membenarkan Sirul Azhar pulang ke Malaysia (sila rujuk FAKTA 1).  
Mengapa Mahathir tidak berapa bersetuju dengan cadangan tersebut. Untuk memahaminya, maka kita perlu rujuk kepada sejarah pembelian kapal selam tersebut.
Mengikut siasatan saya, Rancangan untuk membeli kapal selam telah mula dibahas di Parlimen seawal tahun 1993 lagi (sila rujuk pada beberapa SCREENSHOT HANSARD dibawah). Persoalannya ialah, jika Mahathir sebagai Perdana Menteri merangkap Menteri Kewangan berkata dia tidak tahu tentang rancangan hendak membeli KAPAL SELAM, jadi apa yang Mahathir buat semasa isu tersebut dibahas di Parlimen. DIA TIDUR AGAKNYA  
Ini adalah fakta-fakta tentang siapa yang terlibat didalam pembelian kapal selam Scorpene
👉1) Yang mencadangkan pembelian kapal selam ialah
a) Mokhzani Mahathir dan 
b) Ibrahim M…

APA SEBENARNYA TUN MAHATHIR MAHU?

TS Zeti dan Tun Daim telah mengakui ekonomi negara kekal kukuh dan rezab simpanan negara mempunyai rm436 billion, tertinggi dalam sejarah negara!
Terbaru Tun Mahathir telah membuat kenyataan yang mana 1MDB ...penubuhan siasatan diRaja ( RCI ) tidak perlu kerana tiada bukti kukuh untuk disabitkan kesalahan pada Najib.
Kini semuanya sudah nyata dan jelas..100% sebelum ini isu2 tersebut telah di politikkan kerana ada sesuatu yang tersembunyi hanya Najib dan Mahathir sahaja yang mengetahui.
Dulu Mahathir kata Najib dan kerajaan BN perlu ditumbangkan untuk menyelamatkan negara dari MUFLIS  dan juga tak mahu aset2 negara dijual ke negara luar. 
Malah dengan konsisten mengatakan Najib penyamun dan pencuri harta rakyat serta mengayakan keluarga mereka.
Hanya 5 hari sahaja Mahathir dapat kuasa..segalanya sudah terjawab hanya dengan kenyataan Zeti dan Daim sahaja.
Adakah Mahathir jujur dengan perjuangan agama bangsa dan negara?
Dalam sejarah satu permainan politik yang amat kotor...fitnah, pembohongan…
