Gov’t talks with GB Auto for tuk-tuk alternatives have come to halt

The Public Enterprises Ministry and GB Auto have ended talks to jointly manufacture an alternative to tuk-tuks, Al Mal reports, citing an unnamed government source. Word that GB Auto and the ministry were negotiating a potential agreement came earlier this year after the government said in 2019 that it wanted to phase out the three-wheeled vehicles for natural gas-powered mini bus alternatives. The ministry appears to be seeking a private sector entity to partner with state-owned El Nasr Automotive to manufacture the vehicles, as the ministry pushes for more public-private partnerships.
