Khodrocar – It has been a challenging year for part manufacturers. A strategic industry with many potentials, which is fighting with smuggling and imports.
The industry, which has even been willing to pay the free exchange for import of raw materials, as no other exchanges are allocated to them, but they keep waiting for their demands from the government.
The government claims that it has special plans for this industry but in reality, none of the government promises came true and no extra budget is allocated to them. This way, some of the old manufacturers are becoming bankrupt.
However, some part manufacturers are challenging the economic problems and hope to have 40 percent share in the cars that are going to be produced after JCPOA. But there is not even a promising news in that field. So what is the fate of part manufacturers?
Bahram Shahriari, an automotive industry expert told Khodrocar about the issue: "Despite the government's emphasis on resilient economy, employment and production, still there is no good news for part manufacturers. There is instability and sudden government decisions in all industries and part manufacturing industry is not an exception.”
He claims: "The only way for employers to protest is to not pay the salaries of workers and personnel, a clear example of which is now seen in this industry. This situation is due to the sudden decisions, which harm the production and it will continue until the integration of government decisions.”
According to Khodrocar, although the automotive and part manufacturing industry’s production quality increased during the recent years but the government didn’t pay enough attention to them and it seems that the government is unable to make right decisions for these two industries.
