(ANSA) - TRIESTE - Public officials in Belarus will soon drive only Geely cars, made in China and assembled in Borisov near Minsk, the country's President Alexander Lukashenko said as reported by Belta agency.

"Imported brands will no longer be used by our public officials from local administrations to ministers, with the exception of the Prime Minister and the highest officials", Lukashenko said, underlining that the passage to Geely vehicles will be introduced gradually in order to save resources.

The sale of vehicles assembled in Borisov by the joint-venture between the Chinese carmaker and the Minsk Government has started in March 2013. (ANSA).
