The dialogue with Sin Chew Daily was made possible with arrangement by corporate communications and business development department of Sin Chew Daily.
Khor said in order for the industry to survive in the internet and digital era, the association is leading its members and the car industry sector to be prepared for challenges ahead.
He said in the latest development trend, the association and car industry either switch to other business, transform or close shop.
