During the talks, Cai exchanged ideas with Nielsen on the progress of the cooperative project with MAN and the market orientation of models like C7H and T7H.
It has been long since SINOTRUK entered into partnerships with renowned European companies and the cooperation with MAN was the only state-approved heavy-duty truck cooperation project then, Ma said, adding the cooperation has made great progress over the past three years.
Nielsen was pleased to visit SINOTRUK and felt it to be excellent in R & D, production and quality control after test-driving its products.
Both Ma and Cai said the switch of heavy-duty trucks from low end to high end is a trend of both the European market and the Chinese market, the SINOTRUK-MAN cooperation has just met the market need, SINOTRUK exactly positions SITRAK as a series of German quality and of relatively low prices and is confident of achieving a market success for SITRAK.
The two sides had a sincere and heated discussion about the relevant issues of the cooperative project, expressing the desire for deeper cooperation.
