The Ministries approved the new conditions of industrial assembly regime

The Ministry of economy development and the Ministry of industry and trade approved new conditions of industrial assembly regime, said the director of special economic zones and financing department of Ministry of industry, Dmitriy Levchenkov. By his words, the document should be signed the next week.
According to the new conditions, the foreign car makers could import components by the preferential conditions in Russia, if they produce 300 thousand cars a year in four years after the agreement concluded, said Mr. Levchenkov. As Vedomosti wrote, this level is valid only for new plants and in case of modernization of existing plant the production should be 350 thousand cars and the term is only three years (it was discussed before that all plants will have to produce 300 thousand cars). Therewith, there must be not less than 30% of produced cars that are equipped by engines or gearboxes of Russian production. It is offered the production of 5% by SKD-method as a bonus, said Mr. Levchenkov. By the data of Kommersant newspaper, the investor could use this method only for two years (the Ministry of trade suggested 8 years or 7%). Besides, there is no one of key requirements in the design law about the minimum level of investments of 750 million dollars in the launched projects (the Ministry of industry and trade insisted on it).
According to the new regime, the localization level was increased to 60% in the sixth year of industrial assembly and 30% should be reached for four years. Therewith, the formula of localization calculation was corrected all commercial expenses and the cost of imported components were excluded from the price of sold cars that will not allow the car makers to overstate the final price of cars with aim to increase the localization.
Mr. Levchenkov also informed that five companies want to conclude the agreements of industrial assembly with acceptance of new conditions. The alliances Renault-Nissan-AvtoVAZ and Sollers-Fiat are among them. Mr. Levchenkov didnt reveal the other three companies but he remarked that they are foreign companies and there are negotiations with them. By the words of sources, it is about Hyundai together with Kia, GAZ group with Volkswagen and PSMA Rus (PSA Peugeot-Citroen and Mitsubishi).
It should be also added that the term of signing of agreements about industrial assembly is finished on February 28th, 2011, as the Russian government wont be able to conclude the agreements with investors because Russia joins VTO.
The analytical agency AUTOSTAT upgraded the report about foreign cars localization in Russia, which includes the characteristics of market participants with indication of existing local suppliers.
