Industrial assembly will be prolonged until the end of 2009

The Ministry of economical development will resume completing the agreements on industrial assembly of cars and car components, as the deputy minister of economical development Stanislav Voskresenskij reported. The director of department of investment politics of the Ministry of economical development Dmitrij Levchenkov added that the period of signing of agreements of industrial assembly of car components will be prolonged until the 31st of December of 2009.
We remind you that from the standpoint of joining of Russia the WTO, planned for the beginning of 2008, the russian government stopped to take orders for getting the customs duties from the car manufacturers in November 2007 (this was demanded by WTO). At the present moment, 23 projects are realized in conditions of industrial assembly in Russia. However, in view of stop of negotiations about joining of Russia the WTO, the signing of agreements about the assembly of cars and car components on preferential terms was recommenced.
As Mr. Voskresenskij said, the resume of industrial assembly was directed to opening of car productions in the Far East. As it was reported before, Sollers is searching for a site in Khabarovskij krai for building of the factory of assembly of SUV Ssang Yong and trucks Isuzu. Together with the company Nissan AVTOVAZ is studying the possibility of organization of production of cars of japanese makes in Komsomolsk na Amure. The Ministry of economical development adds that the giving of privileges will be resumed for automotive concerns, which managed to sign memorandums of intentions with the Ministry, but did not complete agreements. For example, the Taganrogskij car factory, producing Hyundai cars.
In opinion of experts, all car manufacturers, who wanted to get preferential terms for creation of productions in Russia, have already done it. For example, out of 15 brands of foreign car manufacturers (leaders by volume of sales in Russia) only Mazda and Honda do not have factories in our country and they do not plan to. Of course, many chinese car manufacturers would like to get preferential terms of industrial assembly, but the government would hardly complete an agreement with them like before. So, the analysts think that the prolongation of industrial assembly will be used mainly by manufacturers of engines and gearboxes. The localization would be hard without this. So, AVTOVAZ plans to output engines for cars on basis of Renault Logan; Sollers is going to output an engine Fiat F1A in the special economic zone Alabuga; the Group GAZ will output the italian VM Motori in Nighnij Novgorod.
