In order to respond to The Belt and Road Initiative, Holdwell attend the China Machine Fair Kazakhstan 2018 in Almaty during Dec.4th to 6th.

 

Before we know little about the Central Asia. Based on trade records with Kazakhstan clients, we bring samples and posters for Deutz, JCB, Bobcat, CAT, John Deere, JLG. To the exhibition.

 

During the exhibition, we have meeting with more than 20 clients. As per their information, we know more information about brands of local market. For construction machinery, there are CAT, Komatsu, Hitachi, Hyundai. While XCMG is the most famous because of their sound sales network. For Agriculture machinery, the Belarus Tractor is in monopoly position. As Kazakhstan was member of The Soviet Union and tractor factory was located in Belarus in that period. That is why Belarus tractor is widely accept in all CIS countries. John Deere also has some market share in the north of Kazakhstan, where is wheat land. The local farm owner would like to receive spare parts within 3 days when they need to repair their machines, or it may cause delay and big loss in busy season.

 

The last day in Kazakhstan, we visit the local spare parts market. Most of spare parts they sell and repair are for car, truck and passenger car. Usually they buy from Europe, Russia and China. Many local business man are Kazak. They grow up in China and immigrate back to Kazakhstan. So language is not a problem when they do business with China.

 

In a word, Kazakhstan market is full of potential for us. We Holdwell will pay attention on it and hope have more cooperation with local clients.
