China's Auto Sector Remains Stable Despite Falling Sales
China's auto sector will remain stable and positive in the long term despite declining car sales in the past two years, an official with the Chinese economic planner said on Thursday. Faced with changes in the sector, China has implemented policies aimed at optimizing the environment for automotive consumption and unlocking the consumption potential to mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 epidemic and changes in the automotive market growth. Today, the main Chinese car companies have fully resumed their work and their daily production has gradually returned to more than 75% compared to the same period last year, while dealer orders have returned to more than 65%. percent of normal levels. The wholesale market also posted triple monthly growth, as sales of new energy vehicles increased by 400% to 56,000 units since February. The country has decided to extend the subsidies and tax exemptions for the purchase of new energy vehicles for two more years, which will expire at the end of this year.
