At 14:00 on January 13, Ivankovic, General Manager of MAZ Group of Belarus, led the management team to visit Weichai. Both parties conducted in-depth discussions on expanding cooperation and accelerating localization development in the future.
MAZ Group is an important partner of Weichai along the “Belt and Road”. With the efforts of both parties, the joint venture factory of MAZ and Weichai was completed and put into operation in seven and a half months. In October 2019, the 1,000th engine of the factory was produced, which was the result of both parties joining hands in creating a bright pearl of the crown on the “Belt and Road". In the future, with the completion of a joint venture project between Weichai's Fast and MAZ Group, the advantages of the “engine + transmission” powertrain gold industry chain will become more prominent.
Tan Xuguang said that in the future, we must accelerate the localization process, give full play to the advantages of the powertrain industry chain, continue to increase application support to MAZ Group, help both parties in market development, and set out the “Belt and Road" international capacity cooperation benchmark.
On this trip, Ivankovic also brought a letter from Pavel Utyupin, Minister of Industry of Belarus, to Tan Xuguang. Minister Utyupin expressed that the new factory of MAZ and Weichai created a miracle in the construction of Belarusian projects, and highly recognized the results of the cooperation between the both parties. Based on the existing good cooperation, we must further expand the cooperation space and win the future together.
