The e-garage subsidiary of Malaysia-based Tan Chong Group, which is manufacturing and distributing Nissan brands, had launched its service and spare part centres in February last year. The e-garage also appointed UDMC as a sale representative in July last year.

The Myanmar Investment Committee has already granted Nissan Company permission to operate the automobile industry in Bago Region as a cent-per-cent foreign investment. Nissan will invest in the Bago Region automobile industry after receiving permission for a 30-year land rental from the Ministry of Industry.

The Tan Chong Group also operates sales and service centres and automobile assembly factories in Southeast Asian countries, together with Japan's Nissan Motor Group. It is expected that construction work will be finished in 2015.

Sales and service centres for the Nissan, Mitsubishi, Suzuki, Ford, Chevrolet, Mercedes Benz, K.I.A and Hyundai motor companies are currently being launched in Myanmar.
