Khodrocar – reaching the first position of auto making in the region, fifth place of Asia and eleventh place in the world is the point of auto industry development. This goal is reachable by supporting the import of first materials, supporting local producers and finally supporting export products.
During the recent years, importing first materials increased while supporting domestic production and exporting products are not considered very good.
In the roadmap for the development of the automotive industry by 2025, component export to foreign markets worth about 6 billion dollars and it requires a great support from the government and supporting funds.
"By the increment of export guarantees fund’s supports, automakers could use more from the benefits of them.” Said Arash Shahr Aeini, deputy of export guarantee fund of Iran. "right now, some of automakers are covering their credit sales by the guarantee fund insurances.”
"Automakers and part manufacturers could use the supports of this fund like predicting credit sources. For example, IKCO, SAIPA and other automakers are able to sell their cars in long term and in the periods of 3 months, 6 months or one year under the fund coverage.” He added. "We are not limiting automakers or part manufacturers but we have to validate if they want to use facilities because the support limit of companies could be different due to their validity.”
"Supporting limit for automakers depends on their balance sheet, but in the export situation, buyer credit is considered so the supporting limit is determined by validity, balance sheet and payment record of the buyer.” He continued. "Right now, exporters’ supporting limit has increased. In 2014, the limit was 700 million dollars, then in 2016 increased to 1.6 billion dollars and this year it was 2 billion dollars.”
