In 2012, KLE partnered with King Long to launch a CKD project for King Long minivans in Egypt. A manufacturing facility with annual production capacity of 5,000 minivans was set up, including an automotive coating workshop valued at EGP100 million. King Long has become the number one minivan brand in Egypt.
King Long general manager Mr. Zhang Bin said: "Egypt is one of the most important markets in King Long's global expansion and KLE is our closest strategic partner. I believe that with the implementation of the Chinese government's program to revitalize trade connecting Europe and Asia, more King Long buses and vans will make their appearance on roads all across the world."
