Government orders give a helping hand to Russian automobile plants

Government contracts will help automobile manufacturers to stand some time during crisis. According to the newspaper "Vedomosti" Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation will help AVTOVAZ to overcome consequences of financial crisis which caused slowdown in demand. The company hopes to win in Ministry competition for delivery vehicles for disabled. Nowadays AVTOVAZ" warehouses and dealer centers have 95 000 cars, 17 000 Lada 2107 of which are reserved for participation in competition for delivery vehicles to Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation.
This year AVTOVAZ has already won similar competition. In April the plant shipped 11 347 Lada 2107 to Federal Agency of Health and Social Development. These cars were given to war veterans on the eve of the 9th of May. At that time dealers complained about shortage of classic" models but today supply exceeds the demand for all model line Lada. Moreover in May Ministry of the Russian Federation for Civil Defense received 465 Lada 4x4 Niva SUVs. According to "AUTOSTAT" in September AVTOVAZ shipped 610 Lada Samara sedans to Ministry of Internal Affairs.
"KAMAZ" announced some days ago about the reduction of the production plan in 2008 for 3 000 trucks and in the nearest future is going to reduce the staff about 10 percent. So the plant will not ask for the government orders. Sergey Kogogin, the managing director of the plant, said that the 3-year order of the Ministry of Defense is formed by 2010.
Also the government supported GAZ Group which this week stopped the "GAZel" production. The company supplied 1 150 school minibuses for national project "Education". Total sum of the contract is 587.5 million rubles. Supply of "GAZel" will be completed till the end of November.
Analysts consider that in conditions of sales slowdown the government orders came in handy for Russian manufacturers but they will not save the situation because of the small volume. 17 000 vehicles for AVTOVAZ are about 30 percent from monthly production volume. 1 100 vehicles "GAZel" are only 7 percent from GAZ Group monthly production volume.
