Government will compensate for loss of benefits abolition by “industrial assembly”


Ministry of industry and trade is ready to support car producers that work by regime of “industrial assembly: enterprises, which will lose benefits for components import because of entry in WTO, will receive a subsidy from a state budget. The acting Minister, Denis Manturov, informed about it in the meeting about car industry problems and he also added that the necessary draft law was introduced to the Government. 

As newspaper “Vedomosti” wrote, at the beginning of the previous year the government reconsidered conditions of industrial assembly and it held a campaign by new agreements signing with car producers. Enterprises must create new production for not less than 300 thousand cars per a year or to increase the existing one up to 350 thousand cars and also they must set up a production of engines or gear boxes to import components by preferential duties (not more than 5% instead of 15-25%); the minimum localization level must be 60%. 

These requirements were approved by six producers – consortium of AutoVAZ, Renault, Nissan, “IzhAuto”, KAMAZ and Mercedes –Benz Trucks Vostok”, the joint venture of Ford and Sollers and also the independent companies General Motors, Volkswagen, Fiat and Magna. Thereby, in accordance with agreement about the entry of Russia in WTO, privileges on duties must be abolished from July 1st of 2018.  Ministry of trade offers to compensate for losses of companies by presenting them state subsidies, written in the law draft. Their sizes, criteria and terms of presenting will be defined by government. Subsidies will be paid from incomes for duties for import of components, explained an officer of the government.

It will be required several billion Roubles of budget funds per a year to compensate loss of companies because of benefits abolition, estimated a worker of one of car producers that works by “industrial assembly” regime. According to estimation of director of analytic department of UK “Ingosstrach-investments”, Evgenii Shago, if we take into account the average price of car of 15 thousand dollars with the production of 500 thousand cars per a year, then loss of car producers because of benefits abolition will be about 700 million dollars.
