WTO threatens to the Russian producers of trucks

The entry of Russia in the world trade organization threatens to the Russian market of trucks.
According to the materials of Ministry of industry and trade, the market of trucks will increase almost twice, to 73 thousand units in 2010. Therewith, the majority of trucks is produced in Russia (67 thousand units, +66,5%). It is predicted the insignificant growth of trucks market in 2011 by 3% in compare with 2010, the Ministry of industry and trade predicted. But the situation with the production is even worse. The production of trucks could increase by 5,4% in 2011 and of light commercial vehicles by 4%. And the situation could be even more critical in 2012, - RBK daily informed. As the representatives of Ministry of industry and trade remarked, the diplomats of Russia approved not only the sharply decreasing of duties for trucks after the joining to WTO (expected in 2011) but also the short transitional period. The present level of duties for trucks is 25% and after the joining to WTO it should be decreased to 15% and in 2015 to 10%. The producers of passenger cars could breathe easier: the transitional period for passenger cars will be seven years and the decreasing of duties will be more gradual.
Therewith, the strategy of vehicle industry development till 2020 supposes that the Russian market of trucks could reach 190 thousand units, among which for import should be about 10% (20 thousand units). The local producers could provide the production of 260 thousand trucks, among which 90 thousand units is planned to be shipped for export. But it wont be possible to implement this scenario, if it is not kept the existing level of duties till 2015, then it is required to decrease duties in three stages (each by 5%) in 2015, 2017 and 2018.
This issue was discussed during the visit of Nizhniy Novgorod by Mr. Putin, the source of branch informed. But there is no prepared decision, - he remarked. The accession process was approved and we could talk only about the other ways of support, not tariffs methods. In particular, it was decided to continue the stimulating demand program for vehicles there could be contributed 10 milliard Roubles for the purchases of vehicles and also trucks from the federal budget. Besides, Vladimir Putin charged to accelerate the development of scrappage program for trucks. There were offers of limitation or forbidden import of used trucks as it was in other countries of BRIC, said the interviewee of RBK daily. They will become the main problem with the duties decreasing as the Russian vehicles will be presented in different price segments with new trucks, he explained.
