The government can limit volumes of SKD assembly

Auto plants which use customs privileges can produced through the SKD method not more than 20 thousand cars, the Ministry of industry and trade, the Ministry of Finance and Ministry of economic development and trade prepared the corresponding project of the order about change of the regime of the privileged assembly.
The newspaper "Vedomosti" writes that these restrictions do not refer to manufacture of the full cycle which include welding and painting of the body. The order project provides also restriction for SKD assembly of foreign auto trucks in 5 thousand units however any of foreign manufacturers of auto trucks did not sign the agreement about privileged assembly with the government of Russia.
Earlier there was only restriction for terms of organization of the full cycle in 2.5 years and manufacture localization, experts remark. In their opinion, introduction of the new restriction should show that the government is not ready to make concessions to foreign auto companies even during the crisis.
Nine companies have signed the agreements about privileged assembly. The majority of those, which constructed plants in Russia, have already started manufacture of the full cycle. Only one enterprise the Kaluga Volkswagen plant can suffer. Last week the assembly of cars of the full cycle has begun there, however while only Skoda Octavia and Volkswagen Tiguan are produced this way (more than 20 models are assembled in the Kaluga Volkswagen altogether). In 2009 the plant plans to assemble not less than 63 thousand cars.
