GWM previously opened its “Smart Factory”, which is also its second full-production manufacturing facility outside China and unveiled the first All New HAVAL H6 Hybrid SUV from its production line here. In the latest move, GWM was granted a royal audience from Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn at the Chaipattana Building, Suan Chitralada, for presenting the vehicle on June 23, 2021. The presentation aims at promoting Thai – Chinese ties as well as the supports on the usage of new energy vehicles to ease pollution for the better environment.

Great Wall Motor Presents First All New HAVAL H6 Hybrid SUV  from Thailand-based Production Line to HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn Elliot Zhang, President, Great Wall Motor ASEAN and Thailand, said during the royal audience that, “The Thai – Chinese relations have long been close, with regular exchanges of visits at all levels. Thai royals’ trips to China are key to the forging of closer ties and cooperation between the two nations. They also lead to friendship and mutual understanding among Chinese and Thai peoples on a sustainable basis. GWM executives in China and Thailand feel very grateful to Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn for her royal works that benefit the two countries as well as their peoples. High-level executives in China have been granted royal benevolence on several occasions during the Princess’ trips to China. Today, we are especially delighted that the Princess has granted us this royal audience as well.”

China has been Thailand’s No. 1 trade partner and the second biggest market for Thai exports. Thailand, meanwhile, has been China’s third-biggest trade partner in the ASEAN region. At the heart of Thai – Chinese ties is economic cooperation. The trade ties between the two nations have become especially close after the ASEAN–China Free Trade Agreement got an upgrade in 2019.

She has made outstanding contributions to the Thai – Chinese relations in terms of diplomacy and bilateral cooperation in various aspects. China is pleased to foster its cooperation with Thailand further for friendship and harmony under ‘China and Thailand are One Family’ concept.”
