FOTON AUV buses served high-ranking government officials, state guests and journalists with zero malfunctions.

Expo 2017 Astana will take place from June 10 to September 10, 2017. The theme is "Future Energy". It will be one of the biggest pavilions at the Expo and the theme of the China Pavilion is "Future Energy, Green Silk Road". As the forerunner of this initiative, Foton Motor was one of the earliest Chinese enterprises to begin developing in overseas markets. It has realized global industrialization operations and has made outstanding achievements in "Belt & Road" countries.

As the most technologically representative urban transport projects in Kazakhstan and throughout Central Asia, the Astana automatic unmanned light rail project is China and Kazakhstan's model project under the "Belt & Road " initiative. At present, Foton Motor has cooperated with the project contractor to provide relevant engineering machinery, heavy duty truck products and support services.

In addition, Foton AUV coach & bus has successfully won a 1,000 unit order of clean energy buses from a client in Myanmar, making it the largest Southeast Asia bus export contract since China was founded.

Furthermore, Foton Motor will rely on scientific and technological innovation to localized operations. Supported by technologies and operation experience of two joint ventures, namely, Beijing Foton Daimler Automotive Co., Ltd. (BFDA) and Beijing Foton Cummins Engine Co., Ltd (BFCEC), Foton Motor will implement its globally leading automobile manufacturing and operation standards to other regions with its business. It will, when offering high value-added products and services to local users, serve as the forerunner of "intelligent manufacturing in China", and the internationally leading automobile enterprise driven by technology.
