Great Wall Motor aims to boost overseas sales this year, an official at China's top pickup truck maker said on Saturday, helping to ease an overall drop caused by Covid-19.

The company plans to sell 70,000 vehicles outside China, up from 65,000 last year, Sun Guang, vice general manager at Great Wall's international marketing department, told reporters at the Beijing International Automotive Exhibition 2020.

International sales make up around 7% of Great Wall's overall sales, and Great Wall plans to increase that gradually, Sun said.

Sun said the Baoding-based automaker plans to start building vehicles in Thailand and India next year, but did not offer detail. Great Wall said earlier this year that it would buy two plants in these countries from General Motors .

The company also plans to sell cars in the European Union.
