Xinhua news:


"China's Soueast Motor Co. Ltd. has clinched its biggest ever export deal with Iranian companies to sell 8,000 cars to Iran next August. The 8,000 Soueast Delica cars, bought by Mehreghan Co. and its agent Setareh Nik Aria Vehicle Manufacturing Co., will be used to replace rundown taxis in Iranian cities.

Soueast Motor, based in southeast China's Fujian Province, has won the lion's share of the Iranian government's plan to replace 15,000 taxis in 2007, according to a report on the company's website. But the company did not reveal the price of the exported cars.

The export deal is a major breakthrough for Soueast Motor, which is trying to promote its products on the international market, said Ling Yuzhang, board chairman of the company. To boost the export of cars and parts, the Chinese government is planning to set higher requirements for the country's car exporters. Soueast Motor was among the first 44 car exporters to be approved by the Ministry of Commerce and the National Development and Reform Commission in August of this year."

"Manufacturers that had only nominal exports or failed to guarantee their product quality or provide solid after-sale service would be banned from automobile exports to prevent further damage to the reputation of Chinas car industry" according to Chong Quan of the Ministry of Commerce last August(to Xinhua News Agency).

But who are these 44 car exporters? Does anyone have info on who is being refused the license to export? It may turn out to be a life or death decision for some of China's smaller makers who currently are not competing well in the home market.

Anyway the news story shows great progress for Soueast which generally keeps a low profile, but who steadily turn out a decent product. All their suppliers are almost in their backyard, so it keeps costs down.
