COMPANY MAZ TO EXPORT 100 CARS TO ARMENIA IN 2006
YEREVAN, SEPTEMBER 14, NOYAN TAPAN. The Belarusian company MAZ, which
is taking part in the Armenia Expo 2005 exhibition that opened in
Yerevan on September 14, plans to export 100 trucks and dump trucks to
Armenia in 2006, which will exceed twofold this year’s
index. According to Stepan Abramovich, Head of the company’s
Department for Export to CIS and Central Asian Countires, out of the
50 trucks envisaged to be exported to Armenia this year, 30 ones have
already been transported to the country.
MAZ started exporting trucks to Armenia two years ago. The company’s
main Armenian customer is the Yerevan Brandy Plant. Construction and
mining indusrty companies have also begun to order cars due to the
economic growth in the country. Although in terms of quality MAZ
production is not inferior to that of other foreign companies, its
trucks are cheaper by almost 50%.
