Updated 2017-12-14 10:36:12 Xinhua

Chinese automaker Foton and its Kenya-based distributor Pewin Motors on Wednesday signed a Memorandum of Understanding to distribute the Chinese-made cars in Kenya.

Foton Motor Kenya Ltd., the wholly-owned subsidiary of Foton International, is responsible for the dual brands operation of Foton in the markets of Kenya and East Africa.

"We are going to develop a wide distributor network across the country to distribute our vehicles to Kenyan consumers," Zhao Xiao, Vice President of Foton International, said during the China Africa Industrial Capacity Cooperation Expo.

"Pewin Motors is the distributor of our light commercial vehicles, and currently we are also searching for more professional partners in both light and heavy commercial vehicles," Zhao said.

The four-day event brought together over 60 Chinese enterprises to showcase their latest technology to Kenyan consumers. Foton motors is one of the largest vehicle manufacturers in China.

Foton Motor Kenya has built its own spare parts warehouse center and a nationwide service network, and has started to assemble vehicles in some local factories. The company has hoped to sell over 500 Foton vehicles annually.
