The Malaysian High Commissioner expressed commitment to boost trade in both countries, saying that the Proton car is a gift from one brother to another.

Meanwhile, advisor Abdul Razzaq Dawood said that Pakistan supports Malaysia’s global role and was optimistic to witness increase trade volume between the two countries.

Back in March, a series of business records were signed between Malaysia's Proton Motors and Pakistan's Al-Haj, under which the company will begin producing Proton cars in Pakistan from June.

The Proton joint venture, first agreed last year, was the centrepiece of a series of agreements signed during a visit of Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad. Pakistani officials said the deals would total around $800-900 million.

The Proton plant, near the southern port city of Karachi, was the latest in a series of assembly deals set up in Pakistan by international auto makers including Volkswagen AG and Hyundai Motors.
