Azerbaijan’s Ganja Automobile Plant is considering the possibility of entering the markets of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) and other countries having economic ties with Azerbaijan, Director of the plant Baghban Nabiyev said, Trend reports referring to foreign media.

According to Nabiyev, the car plant in Ganja city is working on several projects together with its Belarusian counterparts.

"We are conducting marketing research on the sale of E321 electric buses both in Azerbaijan and in neighboring countries. Moreover, we plan to assemble Belarusian tractors in Turkey," he noted.

According to the director, the enterprise is establishing close cooperation with Georgia and Turkey.

"Our plant has official representations in the above two countries. The marketing department is working on various projects to arrange the supply of products assembled at our plant to the markets of Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, and Kyrgyzstan," he further said.

Nabiyev reminded that the car plant assembles Belarusian tractors, MAZ vehicles, truck cranes, utility vehicles, combines, KAMAZ trucks, and other large equipment.

“Despite the negative consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have no problems with the transportation of components that will be supplied under contracts with Belarusian companies, and we intend to expand our activities,” said the director. “Three-four years ago, gas-powered buses were the priority, whilst now assembly of more modern, environmentally friendly electric buses has become more popular.”

“Of course, we’ll continue to implement our joint projects with the enterprises with which we have worked so far - both with our Belarusian counterparts and with other companies, and we’ll also carry out the installation of equipment if appropriate orders come. Besides, we’ll continue to work on other promising projects," he added.
