According to the website of the Ministry of Commerce of China, according to the recent report of the Russian businessmen’s newspaper website, the Russian government has announced the relevant rules for providing subsidies to domestic auto companies in 2014-2016.
According to the rules, the Russian government will allocate 270 billion rubles (about 8 billion U.S. dollars) to support the development of the auto industry by 2016. The news pointed out that this subsidy can only be enjoyed by car companies that have signed an “industrial assembly” agreement with the Russian government, including automobile manufacturers and institutions that provide related services for automobile production.
It is also known that under the pressure of some WTO members, Russian auto companies will also have to pay for automobile scrapping fees from this year. However, the Russian government’s recent subsidy is equivalent to 70% of the total amount of scrapped vehicles paid by domestic auto companies. %.
The development of the Russian automotive industry will inevitably increase the demand for automotive accessory accessories, of which leather is one of the important raw materials needed in the automotive manufacturing process. Previously, the chairman of Hidenet mentioned in an interview that in recent years, the use of leather in the interior of the car has become fashionable. Whether it is leather seats, leather steering wheels or leather as decoration, it can help the car to preserve value.
Even cars with leather seats in the car rental industry are more popular, with 15% to 45% of cars currently equipped with leather. For China, where the automotive leather manufacturing technology has made tremendous progress and development, the Russian government’s subsidization of the automobile industry is undoubtedly of great significance.
Many years ago, China’s assembly of automotive leather was still 100% dependent on imports, but with the successful completion of the “high-performance automotive interior leather” technology project in 2006, China’s largest automotive leather manufacturing company cooperated with Wang Quanjie Research Institute, the first person to tackle the problem. The successful development of automotive leather with flame retardant properties and low physical and chemical properties, coupled with the realization of the later two-layer leather and chrome-free tanned leather production, has greatly promoted the development of domestic automotive leather manufacturing technology.
However, according to the description of the chairman of hidenet, the future of the automotive leather is unquestionable, but the development of the global automotive market is still confusing. China’s smog has led to the continuous introduction of restrictions on purchase restrictions. The “snail speed” of the economic recovery in Europe and the United States may make Russia, as an emerging economy, a “law eye” for Chinese auto leather manufacturers.
In recent years, the Chinese and Russian governments and non-governmental organizations have made continuous efforts to promote trade between the two countries. The joint statement issued by the Chinese and Russian governments in March last year on cooperation and mutual benefit and deepening comprehensive strategic partnership of cooperation has pushed Sino-Russian economic and trade relations to the highest point. The two sides indicated that they will strengthen cooperation in various industries and promote bilateral economic and trade relations. It will reach 100 billion U.S. dollars by 2015 and 200 billion U.S. dollars by 2020.
