Furthermore, we have indicated to the Minister of Transport the many difficulties currently faced by the retread industry in Malaysia, particularly with regards to cheap, one life tyres, from China.  This will be further emphasized together with other issues faced by the industry to the Deputy Minister when he attends the conference.

This support of TRMAM members, in full force, will certainly portray to the Deputy Minister that the issues facing the retread industry in Malaysia are real and serious and would need his Ministry's urgent attention.
