2016/11/16

On 14 November, Chinese Consul General Pan Xinchun paid a visit to the famous British bus manufacturer Alexander Dennis Limited (ADL) in Falkirk, Scotland, and had a tour of Chinese automobile company BYD and ADL's joint venture electric bus production workshop.

 

ADL's chief executive Mr. Robertson warmly welcomed Consul General Pan. He said that a joint venture agreement on building electric buses by ADL and BYD was signed last year on the occasion of the State visit to the UK by Chinese President Xi Jinping. The products brings together the proven battery and electric technology of BYD with the design and expertise of ADL. The cooperation between ADL and BYD has been going very well with the delivery of 51 buses to London, and ADL will increase production in the first half of next year. ADL is the UK's biggest bus manufacturer, accounting for more than 50% of the British market share. Mr. Robertson spoke highly of Chinese technology and product and expressed full confidence in the cooperation between the two sides in the future.

 

Consul General Pan said the development of electric buses will not only benefit energy conservation and environmental protection, but also contribute to local employment alongside social and economic development, while Chinese companies can go abroad and achieve mutual benefits. He wished future collaboration between the two companies greater success.
