Uz-DaewooAvto (Uzbek: O'z-DeuAvto, Russian: Уз-ДэуАвто) is a joint venture founded in 1992 between the Uzbek state owned UzAvtosanoat and the South Korean headquartered, American owned GM Daewoo/GM Korea. The company began production of vehicles on 19 July 1996[1] at the new assembly plant located in Asaka.[2]

Following Daewoo's collapse in 2001, and resulting change of ownership, GM Uzbekistan was eventually established in March 2008 as a new replacement joint venture, and the Nexia and Matiz were sold under the Chevrolet badge together with an extended range of GM Korea Chevrolet models produced at the Asaka factory. The joint venture is owned by Uzavtosanoat JSC (75%) and General Motors Corporation (25%).[6] GM Uzbekistan produced 106,334 units during the first half of 2011.[7]
