Entering its second year, the trade show targets visitors from the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), said the release.

According to the release, the Malaysian market’s stability continues to attract companies from around the world. In Malaysia there are 341 cars per 1,000 people, so there is strong aftermarket potential for auto components and accessories firms.

Trade agreements including the Malaysia-Turkey Free Trade Agreement provide a platform for greater trade between the regions, stated the release. The show’s European pavilion offers exhibitors special upgrades on booth design and other bespoke services.
