The 2017 Fortune Global Forum is due to be held in Guangzhou from Dec 6 to 8 and GAC's best-selling innovative SUVs GA8, GS8 and GM8 have been selected to be the official reception automobiles for guests.
Earlier this month, GAC Motor consolidated its dominance in the domestic industry by retaining its position as the highest ranking Chinese brand in the J.D. Power Asia Pacific's 2017 China Initial Quality Study for the fifth consecutive year.
J.D. Power, the US-based global marketing information services company, measures top-performing auto brands and products by surveying millions of consumers.

At the ceremony, Needham spoke highly of Guangzhou's leading role in promoting opening-up and international communication and said the southern Chinese city is the best city to host the 2017 Fortune Global Forum. He also noted that GAC, itself a global top 500 enterprise, represents the highest standard of products made in China.
Zhang also delivered a speech at the ceremony, saying that GAC, as a leader in Guangzhou's auto industry, will take this forum as a great opportunity to increase its brand exposure to a global audience.
