ZAZ has launched a car manufacturing in Kazakhstan.
During the Ukraine doesn’t provide a required support to the national car manufacturing the markets of Russia, Kazakhstan and other neighboring countries become increasingly important for the production of ZAZ.
March 16 this year at the plant JSC "AgromashHolding" in Kazakhstan a new production line for assembling of cars ZAZ Сhance was launched. Expanding the geography of car production to the direction Middle Asia ZAZ explains because of the difficulties that exist at the Ukrainian market, as well as difficult working conditions, which the national car manufacture is forced to accept.
"The first necessary condition for the development of the national auto industry - is а creation a favorable investment climate. There weren’t yet created favorable conditions for attracting of investments in the automotive industry in Ukraine. And to import ready-made cars is more profitable than to produce them because of the current system of taxation. Since 2008, import duties on imported cars have been declining, as a result the share of Ukrainian-made vehicles declines from year to year. - Oleg Papashev argues, Deputy Chairman of the UkrAVTO Corporation.
It becomes more difficult to sell the products of national car manufacturing inside the country, primarily because of the strong pressure of imported products which manufacturers are provided with the substantial support from their governments. Therefore ZAZ confidently has opened car manufacturing in Kazakhstan, because it is more profitable than to deliver vehicles that were made in Ukraine.
