XIAMEN, April 9 (Xinhua) -- Two hundred and thirteen luxury buses were shipped from a port in east China's Xiamen city for Saudi Arabia Wednesday evening.

The buses, manufactured by China's leading bus maker Xiamen King Long United Automotive Industry Company, were the first batch to be delivered to the Saudi Arabian market this year, according to Chen Zhixiang, the company's overseas sales manager of West Asia.

Chen said 100 of the buses are premium models tailor-designed for the Saudi Arabian market. Despite the COVID-19 outbreak, the company has kept in close contact with customers through various video conferences to determine bus details, and overcome diverse difficulties to ensure timely delivery.

Besides Saudi Arabia, the company has also fulfilled orders from Malta, Morocco, Chile and Costa Rica since it resumed manufacturing in February.
