MINSK, 23 November (BelTA) – The BelGee car manufacturer has produced more than 100,000 cars over the past four years, Belarusian Deputy Prime Minister Piotr Parkhomchik said at a joint session of the House of Representatives and the Council of the Republic of the National Assembly of Belarus on 23 November, BelTA has learned.
“Over four years the BelGee plant has made more than 100,000 cars and launched mass production of five models of passenger cars. In Q2-Q3 2022 the company faced a shortage of machine sets due to the fact that the Chinese company, our partner, suspended deliveries to our plant because of sanction pressure from the outside,” Piotr Parkhomchik said.
This difficult task has been solved. “Over two and a half months 13,224 passenger cars were shipped to the country, which will let us reach the production of 25,000 cars this year. In monetary terms, in US dollar terms, this will be slightly more than last year, due to a change in the structure of cars,” said the deputy prime minister.
“It is very important that the work done in September makes it possible to produce at least 35,000 cars next year. The deliveries are going evenly. Goals and objectives have been set by the shareholders. If the market turns around, we will adjust our actions and strive for the output and sales of up to 60,000 passenger cars. Next year the plant will introduce several new models,” Piotr Parkhomchik added.
