Over 1960s, 70s and 80s, ZETOR exported thousands of tractors to Myanmar. An assembly workshop was even set up in the City of Malun; the workshop produced over 15,000 tractors which were sold and delivered to the South-East part of Asia. Production was terminated in 1985.

“It is the priority of the Company to strengthen its positions on the markets of Western Europe. However, as we want to make use of all opportunities, we have entered the markets in Myanmar and Iran this year. We are also discussing further possibilities within Asia and Africa,” says Margaréta Víghová, Corporate Communications Director of ZETOR TRACTORS a.s. “Benefiting from the potential on markets with lower emission trading schemes is secured by our new business representation based in India. It is the business company ZETOR INDIA PRIVATE LIMITED,” specifies Margaréta Víghová.

The festive launch of the ZETOR brand on the Myanmar market took place on November 1 as a part of the visit of the diplomatic mission of the Czech Republic headed by Jan Mládek, the Minister of Industry and Commerce.

“It is common knowledge that competition in tractor machinery is very strong in Myanmar, mainly on the part of Chinese and Indian producers. However, I believe that the traditional Czech quality, affordable prices and famous brand make a good starting point for success on Myanmar market,” Jan Mládek, the Minister of Industry and Commerce.
