Dear valued clients, colleagues and friends,
In this article, our partner, Anand Raj, and associate, Jeevitha Thurai Rathnam, discuss the Malaysia Competition Commission’s market review exercise into the transportation sector (port logistics ecosystem and motor vehicle warranty claims).
On 10 and 14 September 2020, the Malaysia Competition Commission (“MyCC”) and its consultant Ipsos Strategy3 (“Ipsos”) commenced a two-part Focus Group Discussion (“FGD”) with Stakeholders for a market review into the transportation sector in regard to the supply of parts for servicing and repairing of cars and after port transportation services (“the Market Review”).
The first FGD session was organised in relation to after port transportation services and was held at Maya Hotel, Kuala Lumpur on 10 September 2020.
The second FGD session for the Supply of Parts for Servicing and Repairing of Cars was held on 14 September 2020 at the Aloft Hotel, Kuala Lumpur. Participants included representatives of car manufacturers, insurers, workshop owners, Bank Negara Malaysia and others.
Over the last few months, MyCC and Ipsos have reached out to many stakeholders to engage them in virtual discussions as part of this Market Review exercise.
A public consultation webinar on the Market Review will be held on 24 June 2021 at 8.30 am. The session is open to all interested parties who can participate by registering here. Participation is free of charge but limited slots are available so early registration for the webinar is recommended.
The draft final report of the Market Review (“the Draft Report”) is available on MyCC’s website and the public have the opportunity to provide feedback and comments from 18 June 2021 until 2 July 2021. The Market Review is indicatively expected to be concluded in July 2021.
