“We promised to make this year’s edition of the Perodua Eco-Challenge more challenging and exciting for the teams. After 3 years, I believe that most of the teams have gained a lot of experience and skills from the competition,” Perodua Managing Director Datuk Aminar Rashid Salleh said at the handover ceremony of the development fund to the participating institutions of higher learning here today.

We have decided to include the overall winner category based on the feedback from the participating teams,” he said.
