Tomorrow, Thursday 12 April 2012 David Cameron is due to visit Malaysia on a Trade mission. In Malaysia his focus will be on educational services.
I would be very surprised if he didn't talk about DRB-Hicom's recent purchase of Proton and Group Lotus.
Group Lotus are a commercial disaster. Rumours abound about their future. Liquidation is mentioned, as is an imminent sale.
Does David Cameron have an Ace up his sleeve? Can he persuade the Malaysians to pump more money into Lotus?
If not, I would have to say that the future of Group Lotus is bleak. Whatever happens the autonomy of the Group will be greatly reduced.
Good Luck Mr Cameron!
I certainly hope everything works out for the best. I would love DRB-Hicom to actively become involved with my proposal.
