Russian Motor-cars in Africa
Category: Defence Industry
Two Russian companies, which are involved in the production of military motor-cars, viz. UAZ and KamAZ, have carried out a presentation of their products in Nairobi, the capital of Kenya.
Up to the present, the military of Kenya, as well as other countries of West Africa, have been buying motor-cars for military applications mostly in Great Britain. Nowadays Russia has also decided to struggle for this market. In particular, the KamAZ company is attempting to get the contract for supply of 400 lorries to the Kenyan Armed Forces.
In Nairobi, the Russmotors Limited company established a regional office to promote Russian-produced motor-cars. The activities of this office are to cover not only Kenya, but also Ethiopia, Tanzania, Sudan, and the Democratic Republic of Kongo.
The UAZ and KamAZ enterprises started a campaign to promote their products in East Africa. Recently, the representatives of the UAZ and the KamAZ carried out a presentation of their motor-cars, both proven and newly-designed vehicles, in the capital of Kenya.
