The government is likely to announce the much anticipated revised National Automotive Policy on January 15, 2014, said Minister of International Trade and Industry, Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed (pic, right).

He said today the policy is currently in the final stage of drafting.

"We hope the Cabinet can approve the policy by year end. But that is not a good time to launch a major policy.

"So, we are going to announce it probably in mid-January," he told reporters after delivering his keynote address at the 4th Kuala Lumpur International Automotive Conference today. – Bernama, November 12, 2013.
