Chery wants to output cars in Belorussia for the Russian market

The car factory in Minsk and the Chinese Chery negotiate about organization of full- scaled production of cars.
At the beginning of February the delegation of Chery, headed by the vice president Jou Birain, came to Minsk to the meeting at the government, Ministry of Industry, MAZ and with Chinese cars (the official importer of Chery and official distributor Great Wall in Belorussia). As the director of the company Chinese cars Sergej Varivoda reported for RBK daily, the question at issue at the negotiations was the organization of full- scaled production, however the volume of investments, the volume of production and the form of cooperation were not discussed there. The Chinese part is ready to invest into construction of the factory of full cycle, because in December Chery got a purpose loan of China Eximbank for sum 1, 5 bln USD for development of export projects.
Mr. Varivoda notes that if the realization of the project will be successful, it will be more orientated onto Russian market, than onto domestic one. In Belorussia new foreign cars are not competitive enough against the second hand ones and on totals of 2008 there were imported 200, 3 thsd cars to this country. The volume of sales of new cars constituted 25296 units, only 1300 of them are of Chinese brands, 10% of them are Chery.
In Russia Chery is still the most salable Chinese make. However, after Autotor stopped the assembly of models Chery in March of 2008 and the Russian distributor of make Chery Automobiles Rus was occupied with import, the sales of Chinese cars started to fall, as it is said in the report Automotive industry of China and its expansion to the Russian market. The organization of full scaled production of cross- over Cherry Tiggo at the car factory in Taganrog (that is also in a hard financial position) also did not help. As a result, until the end of the year the negative dynamics of sales of Chery in Russia reached the mark of 58% - 15729 cars. This year the Chinese make started with 82% fall of realization against January of 2008 the volume of sales constituted only 290 cars.
