President of the Republic of Uzbekistan Islam Karimov met with Susumu Hosoi, Chairman of Isuzu Motors Ltd., on July 29 at the Oqsaroy.
The Head of state noted the high level of cooperation between Uzbekistan and Japan in various fields. The mutually beneficial partnership with Japan’s leading high-tech companies has been steadily expanding.
Agreement on the entry of Isuzu Motors Ltd. to the board of founders of SamAuto has been signed in Tashkent between the Uzavtosanoat Joint-Stock Company and the Japanese manufacturer.
The deal is a logical continuation of the long-term cooperation between Uzavtosanoat and Isuzu Motors.
The parties agreed on the implementation of SamAuto development strategy, including the renovation and extension of the model series, enhancement of the range of localization, widespread introduction of advanced Japanese technology and production processes.
The cooperation between Uzavtosanoat and Isuzu Motors Ltd. was launched in 2007, when the Japanese company – as a technology partner of SamAuto – started to supply chassis and engines for manufactured buses, medium-duty trucks and other commercial vehicles. From that time on, together with Isuzu Motors, 10.2 thousand buses and 11.5 thousand trucks have been produced, including 1.2 thousand buses and 2.6 thousand trucks in 2014. An important stride in the advancement of cooperation was the launch of production of new models of freight cars running on compressed natural gas.
Prospects of bolstering the bilateral cooperation and other issues of mutual interest have been discussed during the meeting at the Oqsaroy.
