Malaysia builds its own skytrain

Malaysia builds its own skytrain - December 15, 2003
Ijud pointed out on the forum a story about a new skytrain in Kuala Lumpur built with local technology (or at least without direct supervision by foreign mega-firms).
We wonder how this achievement will influence Thai decision makers. PM Thaksin pays attention to what Malaysia is doing and something like this will not be missed. Ideas of 'using local technology' have been talked about in Thailand for years, but what always results is a mega contract to a Western supplier (sometimes in combination with a local conglomerate). With the planned massive increase in mass transit routes planned in coming years, it might be the right time to really use local technology from beginning to end.
