GENERAL MOTORS TO SHOWCASE SIX VEHICLES AT 'USA '92' TRADE FAIR, MOSCOW
 MOSCOW, May 18 /PRNewswire/ -- General Motors (NYSE: GM) will showcase six 1992 North American vehicles at the "USA '92" trade fair in Moscow, May 19-27.
 The 1992 exhibit will include a Chevrolet Caprice, Corsica, Astro Van, S-10 Blazer and S-10 Pickup, and a Cadillac Seville. GM's Electronic Data Systems and the AC Rochester division will also have information displays at the exhibit.
 The trade fair, with a goal to provide exposure and create business opportunities for U.S. industry in Moscow and the new countries of the former Soviet Union, was re-instituted in 1989 by the Trade and Economic Council (formerly the U.S. - USSR Trade and Economic Council). The 1989 show was the first national showing of U.S. technologies in the region in 30 years.
 "GM's involvement in USA '92 underscores its continued commitment to introduce our North American products into these developing markets," said Greg DeYonker, GM executive in charge of exports and new business development in the former Soviet Union. "GM's participation in this year's event will serve as a catalyst for vehicle sales and business activities in the region."
 GM signed its first multi-city North American vehicle distribution agreement with The Trinity Group of Moscow in November 1991.
 Trinity is scheduled to begin selling and servicing selected North American-built cars, trucks and parts in the near future. GM is also planning to open showrooms and service facilities later this year in St. Petersburg, Kiev and Tbilisi.
 Other GM operations also have been pursuing business opportunities in Russia. In October 1991, GM's Adam Opel of Germany announced the opening of its first dealer in Moscow. In June 1990, GM and the Volga Auto Works (VAZ) of Togliatti signed an agreement for GM to provide engine management and emission control systems for VAZ-produced Lada vehicles. Delivery of these systems began earlier this year.
 "The need for efficient, competitive and dependable transportation in Russia and the surrounding new countries is immediate," said DeYonker, "and we're ready to provide the right products to assist in the region's economic development."
