Malaysia cooperates with China in the development of electric vehicles16. June 2020
For the purpose of cooperation, 3 separate MoUs were signed by Malaysian and Chinese automotive scientists and the manufacturer Proton. One of them was concluded between the Malaysian Automotive, Robotics and IoT Institute (MARii) and the Chinese Automotive Technology and Research Center (CATARC). The purpose of the agreement is to share knowledge, harmonize technical standards and establish a test center for next-generation vehicles (NxGV).
The second cooperation was agreed between Proton majority owner DRB-Hicom and MARii. The aim is to train scientists and specialists for new technologies in the automotive sector. A further cooperation was announced between CATARC and the car manufacturer Proton. The aim is to enable Proton to use CATARC’s numerous test stands and facilities in China. For CATARC, Malaysia is the third country, after Germany and Japan, in which the research facility is active outside China. Inquiries from reporters regarding the specific investment amount were answered in the negative by MARii Chairman Madani. However, he made it clear that the facilities must be completed by 2023.
Furthermore, there is a draft for a further investment by CATARC together with grants from industry and government funds. Further research and development centres in the fields of Big Data, robotics, IoT and urban planning are under discussion. All these facilities are part of an overall concept for networked mobility, Madani said. His institute MARii has already been able to win over 10 well-known companies for cooperation in the aforementioned areas, and further companies for telematics and from the automotive industry will be added. For the export of vehicle components to China or local production, your company needs a CCC certificate. The Chinese CCC (China Compulsory Certificate) is a system for standardizing product quality, similar to DIN or ISO standards. We would be pleased to advise you in the context of an upcoming CCC certification.
