Azhar Abdul Wahab, Senior General Manager of Manufacturing in Honda Malaysia.
He also added that "The Accord 2.0 VTi presented to ADTEC Melaka by Honda Malaysia is mostly an aid for the students in their practical training. Through closed-up examinations, they will be able to acquire knowledge about the technology of the car, especially its advanced safety features."
