COVID Update: Proton is vaccinating its staff members

KUALA LUMPUR: Good news for Proton employees, as the automaker has begun the COVID-19 vaccination programme. This in turn will help Proton restart operations.

Li Chunrong, CEO of Proton, while commenting on the program said, “Proton hopes that by vaccinating our staff, we will contribute to reducing the number of Covid-19 infections in Malaysia. With other companies undertaking similar initiatives, this should help in efforts to restart the automotive industry that has been put on hold by lockdown measures.”
