The MAA says it is confident that the recovery of the economic landscape will further boost the participation of car manufacturers to showcase their latest products.

"We are truly excited as preparations for the show are moving forward.

To date the automakers that have confirmed participation in KLIMS’10 are Chery, Daihatsu, Nissan, Honda, Hyundai, Isuzu, Mitsubishi, UD Trucks, Peugeot, Kia, Perodua, Proton, Toyota and Weststar Maxus. The show eventually hopes to have more than 200 exhibitors from the automotive industry.
