The report said the state-run post office's decision to place the order with Kwang Yang Motor Co
(????), which sells its motorbikes under the brand KYMCO
, was like ringing the death knell for France's
struggling motorcycle industry.
However, the news did not become public knowledge until recently, prompting workers at the motorbike company's factory in Dannemarie in northeastern France
to stage a protest, Le Pays said.
Asked about his
view on the French media's discussion of KYMCO's successful foray into the French scooter market, Taiwan's
representative to France Michel Lu
(???) said small scooters are a highly competitive product.
Italy, Spain, Germany and France
have become major export destinations for the Greater -Kaohsiung-based company, the report added.
