This is the first phase which will involve 4 critical parts which are brake linings, brake pads, tyres and batteries. She said this after a meeting between the representatives from FEMPTAM (Federation of Engineering and Motor Parts Traders’ Associations), FAWOAM (Federation of Automobile Owners Association of Malaysia) and the government agencies.

She also said that the agreement to phase out the import was reached after the consultation with the industry players as well as other government agencies where the ministry will be continuously working with on the next phase.
