An intelligent manufacturing headquarter for new energy vehicles is to be laid in Xi'an High-Tech Industries Development Zone, according to an agreement signed on Oct 30.
Thanks to the combined efforts of the Xi'an municipal government and the Skywell New Energy Vehicle Group, a total investment of 10 billion yuan (.5 billion) will be used to establish a manufacturing base that will have a profound influence across northwestern China.
Liang Gui, vice-governor of Shaanxi province, extended congratulations to the successful signing of the project, noting that the new energy vehicle industry is a typical sunrise industry which will likely spur the development of the real economy and bring unprecedented prosperity to the city.
The partnership with the leading commercial automobile manufacturer is bound to further upgrade the new energy car industry chain and enhance core competence.
Liang urged the government departments to actively support the construction of the base, and create a favorable environment to achieve a win-win result.
Chairman of the Skywell Huang Hongsheng appreciated the help from the authority and gave recognition to Xi'an's strategic role in the development of West China.
The company will exert its edge in research and production, boost related industries to settle in Xi'an and contribute to the economic and social progress.
