MEXICO SQUARE, Addis Ababa | BH Car Assembly | New plant

Quote:
BH Trading and Manufacturing Plc is to officially launch its new vehicle assembly plant on Wednesday, June 23, 2010, at Sheraton Addis.

The company formed a joint venture with the Chinese automaker Great Wall Motors, the latter providing technology transfer, technical support, spare parts, and equipment. It had already started assembling cars at Abay Technical Services Enterprise, which it acquired from the Privatisation and Public Enterprises Supervising Agency (PPESA) for 23.5 million Br in July 2009.

Currently, the plant, located near Mexico Square in Lideta District, is capable of assembling five cars a day, which the company plans to scale up to 15 cars a day. The average price of its cars will be 400,000 Br with a three-month delivery time.

Seven experts came from Great Wall, five of which have returned after giving training to local professionals. Two have stayed behind for quality control and technical support.

That sounds like a lot, unless they are also making work vehicles, which would be more expensive.

Isn't Hongqi like the Rolls-Royce of Chinese cars, the one that the President and high-level officials use?

Yes, especially in Mao's era, Hongqi,namely "red flag", is a symbol of high ranking status.
