Tashkent, Uzbekistan (UzDaily.com) -- French car manufacturing corporation Groupe Renault is ready to start production of cars of the most popular KWID model currently in Uzbekistan, the Dunyo agency reported.
The Embassy of the Republic of Uzbekistan in France organized a meeting with the leadership of the corporation Groupe Renault.
The French side expressed interest in launching the production of Renault cars in Uzbekistan. In particular, it was noted that Uzbekistan is considered by the company as a potential key and long-term partner in Central Asia, in connection with which Renault attaches great importance to joint cooperation projects.
According to a company representative, in 2018 about 6,000 Lada cars, also owned by a French company, were sold in Uzbekistan, which demonstrated the capacity of the country’s car market and the interest of local consumers in the products produced by the company.
On the basis of the widespread demand and preferences in emerging markets, the auto concern management confirmed its readiness to set up the assembly of class A cars at the first stage with subsequent transition to other segments, as well as the phased localization of production.
In particular, Renault is ready to set up the production of automobiles of the currently most popular KWID model, including for export in the markets of the countries of Central Asia and Afghanistan.
In order to discuss the possibility of setting up production, a representative delegation of the French company plans to visit Uzbekistan in the near future.
