The company plans to invest 22.6 billion baht and employ 3,435 people.

After his meeting with Zhang Jiaming, president of GWM’s ASEAN operations, Mr Suriya said GWM would improve the production lines that it had taken over within the fourth quarter of this year for the production of vehicles with internal combustion engines and electric vehicles.

China’s leading sport utility vehicle (SUV) and pickup maker Great Wall Motors purchased General Motors’ Rayong car production facility in Thailand when the American car producer ceased operations in February this year.

Based in the city of Baoding, in the Hebei province, in the north of China, the company Great Wall Motors owns several brands of SUVs and cars like Haval, Great Wall, WEY and ORA. With more than 500 branches abroad, its vehicles are exported to more than 60 countries.
