GM to make 250,000 Chevrolets per year in Uzbekistan

US auto giant General Motors and Korean-Uzbek car manufacturer UzDaewooAvto have set up a joint venture to produce up to 250,000 Chevrolet cars a year in Uzbekistan, company officials said Monday.

General Motors will hold 25% plus one share in the new company, with an option to increase its stake in the JV to 40%.
