OREANDA-NEWS Chinese automakers are ready to develop cars that meet the needs of the Russian market, but they also want reciprocal steps from Russia. This was stated at the II Russian-Chinese Automotive Industry Forum by Chinese Ambassador to Russia Zhang Hanhui, Reuters reports.

According to him, Beijing agrees to promote the integration of production and supply chains, and the Russian side could support the Chinese automotive industry, that is, simplify the conditions of production, sales and work.

The diplomat stressed that China would like to maintain a good image of its own car brands, provide first-class quality and provide high-quality services.
