GM to form JV with Harbin Light Truck Factory

Shanghai, February 2 ( General Motors Corp is set to form a joint venture with northeastern China's Harbin Light Truck Factory Co. Ltd after the latter terminates partnership with FAW Group, said today. The venture may produce pickups, SUVs and light trucks for GM.

In the mid-1990s, the factory ended its affiliation to Ministry of Space Industry and partnered with FAW Group to make pickups, Jiefang trucks and mini-vans for the Chinese auto giant. Many of the vehicles have been exported to the Middle East and Africa.
