The purpose of cooperation is to introduce new technologies and international standards aimed at higher road safety and environmental protection, a comfortable and safe environment for both passengers and drivers.
The agreement aims to replace Euro 1, 2 and 3 vehicles with Euro 4 and 5 ones, as well as increasing the number of vehicles with environmentally friendly gas engines in Bryansk Oblast, located in the Western European region of Russia. The agreement was signed by Sergey Kogogin, General Director of OJSC KAMAZ, and Aleksandr Bogomaz, Acting Governor, Chairman of the Government of Bryansk Oblast.
