PETALING JAYA: Naza Corp Holdings Sdn Bhd’s Automotive Group CEO Datuk Samson Anand George has been conferred the Ordre National du Mérite (the National Order of Merit) by the French government.

This award is in line with his contributions to the French nation via the automotive industry.

French ambassador Frédéric Laplanche conferred the distinguished award on Samson at a conferment ceremony held at the French embassy here recently.

Samson said in a statement: “I am truly humbled and honoured to be conferred the Ordre National du Mérite, a recognition by the French government.”

He noted that Naza’s association with France began with the Peugeot 206 CKD project in 2006.

“This partnership has since culminated in a joint venture that both Naza Group and Groupe PSA have forged to make Naza Automotive Manufacturing in Gurun, Kedah, its Asean manufacturing hub.”

Samson added that Naza looked forward to enhancing business opportunities and greater collaboration with French companies in the automotive industry.
