Plants of China and Korea will win from the WTO entry of Russia

The WTO entry of Russia will lead to redistribution of shares of big car producers in the Russian market in a favour of companies from China and South Korea, experts that were interviewed by “Interfax” suppose. Therewith, Russian plants will loose competitive advantage of low prices.

On the opinion of Minister of industry and science of Sverdlovsk region, Aleksandr Petrov, the WTO entry will be in a couple with difficulties for Russian producers. Minister has also signed the importance of gradual customs duties decreasing, wrote “Finmarket” agency. “If our car industry perceives foreign technologies, uses knowledge of foreign specialists and reachs the high level of quality during the customs duties decreasing then we will be competitive in the world market, added Mr. Petrov.

Executive manager of “Union of car producers”, Igor Korovkin, remarked earlier that the entry of RF in WTO will lead to the share of vehicles of national production decreasing in the total volume of sales in the internal market from 65% in 2011 to 40-45% in 2015. Besides, this union will lead to the share of used cars increasing in the internal market to 14-15% in 2012 and 25-30% in 2015. “Agreements about customs tariffs decreasing for the WTO entry of Russia will lead, first of all, to the share of used cars in the market to 14-15% in 2012 and 25-30% - in 2015. Also we predict the vehicles share decreasing that are produced in Russian territory from 65% in 2011 to 40-45% in 2015”, - said Mr. Korovkin. On his opinion, the customs tariffs decreasing will lead to the stable tendency of car park aging.

Minster of Kaliningrad region (“Autotor” works in the territory of this region, which assembles BMW, Chevrolet, Kia, Cadillac and Opel), Dmitry Chemakin, informed that managers of industrial enterprises of region are very disturb by the absence of information about the order of the WTO entry. “Industry of Kaliningrad region depends on the market of RF. Competitive in this market is created not only by our products but also by tariff protection, which exists in Russia. So, any decreasing of tariff protection won’t be positive for us from the point of view of economy”, - said Mr. Chemakin.

President of Trade and industry chamber of Bashkiria, Yuriy Pustovgarov, said: “It will be a shock at first (after the WTO entry), I suppose, and then the process will be launched and we will become more competitive. WTO is an organization that leads to globalization. We can’t live in economic space by having some barriers. …Practice shows: countries that entered WTO got additional working places. And it means that we will also have more working places and more taxes”.
