The unveiling of the much-anticipated ZXAuto Landmark vehicle attracted close to a hundred people yesterday at the GHK Showroom in Beribi, Gadong.
Present as guest of honour at the launch was Mdm Yang Yanyi, Ambassador of the People's Republic of China to Brunei Darussalam.
Pehin Dato Paduka Awg Goh King Chin, the Managing Director of GHK Motors Sdn Bhd in his speech said, "Earlier in 2006, we were approached by several automotive manufacturers from China."
"However, after serious study and consideration we decided to tie up with ZhongXing Automobile, who have produced the 7-seater SUV and also a double cab pick-up," he added. "This memorandum of understanding was signed in the middle of 2006."
Pehin Goh later declared the existence of ZhongXing Auto in Brunei with the introduction of its first car in the Sultanate - the Landmark.
This was followed by the official Brunei launch of ZXAuto and the unveiling of the Landmark by guest of honour Mdm Yang Yanyi.
Members of the general public that attended yesterday's launch were also given an explanation on the specifications of the vehicle by a GHK Motors representative.
The public can also view the ZXAuto Landmark showcase at The Mall Atrium today and Sunday.
