This came following a six-day working visit to Malaysia’s largest trading partner among European Union member countries, led by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and several Cabinet Ministers towards fostering strategic collaboration and economic growth.

Moreover, Five Petroleum chief executive officer Datuk Seri Dr King Lim Chin Fui is among several businessmen and industry captains who were in Germany to explore business and investment opportunities for mutual benefits.

Lim said the partnership positions Five Petroleum at the forefront of a revolution in recreational vehicle (RV) travel across Southeast Asia, fostering economic growth and promoting eco-friendly adventures.

Lim said it also aligned with their unwavering commitment to sustainability and that the partnership paves the way for a new era in eco-friendly camping experiences. These campervans will be equipped with cutting-edge technology, seamlessly integrate with Five Petroleum’s extensive network of stations offering DEF, a high-quality AUS 32 solution.

Lim also said Five Petroleum recognises the growing RV community and is committed to catering to their needs. Lim said Five Petroleum and their partner from Germany are committed to fostering long-term knowledge exchange and upskilling the Malaysian workforce.

On top of that, Asia RV and Tapio Management, both based in Malaysia, have extensive experience in managing and operating RV-related businesses in the RV industry. Separately, its chief marketing officer Joshua Ng said they would actively identify suitable locations for the development of RV parks.

Ng said establishing a network of safe and secure RV parks will provide much-needed amenities for travellers, further promoting responsible tourism and encouraging exploration, not only in Malaysia but across Asean and Asia Pacific regions.

The groundbreaking partnership is poised to ignite a passion for RV travel in Malaysia and the broader Southeast Asian region, attracting a new generation of enthusiasts. Industry experts predict a minimum 20 percent increase in campervan and caravan ownership and usage within the region over the next five years.

This surge will generate substantial additional revenue streams through campsite development, maintenance services, rentals and accessory sales, creating significant economic opportunities throughout the region. With the existing 2.5 million RV enthusiasts in Germany and over six million across Europe, the RV community in the Asean region is projected to grow significantly.
