Established since 1994 by Japan’s Mitsubishi Motors Corporation and Mitsubishi Trading Company, Malaysia’s Perusahaan Otomobil Nasional Berhad and Vietnam’s Transport Investment Cooperation and Import and Export JSC as distributor of Mitsubishi Motors’ vehicles in Vietnam – Mitsubishi Motors Vietnam Co. Ltd., was one of first automobile joint-ventures in this market.
