Shanghai, November 17, 2008: (Gasgoo.com) China's largest homegrown automobile manufacture, Chery Automobile Co., last Friday signed a cooperation agreement with Thai Chery Yarnyon to assemble Chinese cars in Thailand, according to state media Xinhua.

Under the agreement, Thai Chery Yarnyon will start to locally assemble Chery vehicles including QQ and Tiggo in SKD form, with an initial capacity of 5,000 vehicles. Production will be aimed at both domestic and SE Asian markets.

Thai Chery Yarnyon is jointly established by Thai Yarnyon Co, Yontrakit's subsidiary, and Thailand's agribusiness conglomerate Charoen Pokphand Group.
