Its Toyota is closer to the body
Auto assembly will receive special events in Primorye
The Primorsky Territory has always been considered the unofficial "automobile center" of the Far East - it was here that residents of other regions went to buy used Japanese cars.
In the near future, it is Japanese cars that will be able to attract new investments in the region, as well as provide tax revenues and jobs. But this will not help trade in second-hand foreign cars with right-hand drive, and the assembly of new cars that meet Russian standards in our territory.
Sollers has been producing cars in Primorye since 2009; the company cooperates with Japanese companies Mitsui & Co., Mazda Motor Company and South Korean SsangYong. The vehicle assembly site includes OOO Sollers-Bussan, OOO Sollers-Far East and OOO Mazda Sollers Manufacturing Rus. Sollers jointly with Asian companies assembles popular models - Toyota Land Cruiser Prado (Sollers-Bussan LLC), Mazda 6, Mazda CX-5, SsangYong Actyon, Actyon Sports, Kyron, Rexton. Car production in Primorye increased in 2013 thanks to the launch of joint ventures with Mazda and SsangYong; in the future, it is planned to increase it to 180 thousand vehicles per year. If the project goes well, Primorye will finally be able to acquire the status of a center not for trade, but for the production of cars.
If the SEZ is created, its conditions will extend not only to car factories, but also to other related enterprises. In particular, the companies providing customs and logistics services. Local entrepreneurs can also take advantage of preferences. In favor of the creation of the SEZ, the fact of the presence of residents also speaks: joint ventures with large foreign automakers are already working. This will allow the SEZ to make a profit from the very beginning. Further it is planned to attract new investors, both foreign and Russian, who are planning to enter the ATR market.
Although the final decision on the creation of the SEZ has not yet been made, Sollers is optimistic. The issue has already been discussed at a meeting on the development of Primorsky Krai held by Vladimir Putin. The project is supported also by the regional administration, expecting that the automotive cluster will have a significant multiplier effect for the coastal economy.
