MINSK, Dec. 15 (Xinhua) -- China's Zhejiang Geely Holding Group opened its first official dealership in Belarus on Friday.
The first dealer center, located on Timiryazeva Street in the capital city of Minsk, will offer the crossover Geely Atlas NL3 that is assembled by the Belarusian-Chinese joint venture BelGee using the full-cycle manufacturing process.
The first made-in-Belarus car Geely Atlas NL3 rolled off the conveyor belt on Nov. 17.
Plans have been made for the Belarusian-Chinese joint venture to use the full fabrication cycle to also make the Geely NL4 crossover and the Geely FE3 sedan.
In December 2011, Geely and Belarus' dump-truck manufacturer BelAZ floated BelGee as a joint venture. With this Geely became the only Chinese company assembling cars in Eurasian Economic Union countries.
