In Egypt delivered the first batch of passenger cars of Russian production. For the first time Russia exports to non-CIS countries passenger cars for the so-called European gauge (1435 mm width). As reported on the official website of the Ministry of industry and trade, the total value of the contract amounts to more than a billion euros.
"In Egypt in the framework of industrial cooperation of Russian and Hungarian producers will be sent a few batches of cars. I am convinced that this joint project will be another important step in the development of relations between our countries and will contribute to the development of Russian non-commodity non-energy exports," said Minister of industry and trade of the Russian Federation Denis Manturov.
