MINSK -- Chinese car manufacturer Geely started selling its Belarus-assembled cars in Minsk.

The first batch of Belarusian-Chinese cars made by the Borisov- based company BelGee are already available in dealers' stores in Minsk.

Set up in 2011, the Belarusian-Chinese joint venture BelDzhi first launched the Geely SC7, a sedan that costs approximately $12,990.

"We've chosen a car. After comparing prices and quality, Geely is the best choice," Sergey Lazovskiy, who bought a Geely SC7, told Xinhua.

BelGee is owned 50 percent by dump-truck manufacturer BelAZ, 32.5 percent by China's Geely Automobile and 17.5 percent owned by Soyuzavtotekhnologii. Both BelAZ and BATE are state-owned companies. The enterprise can use semi-knocked down kits to assemble 10,000 cars per annum. It employs 57 people.

The company plans to market the Belarusian-Chinese cars in Kazakhstan and the European Union in the future.
