Khodrocar_ According to statistics, car production dropped 22 percent over the same period last year. Automakers and the auto industry are also insisting that the only reason for this decline in production is due to the lack of liquidity, and that the decline in production will continue until liquidity shortages are resolved under sanctions and problems.
In this regard, Ahmad Nemat Bakhsh, secretary of the Automobile Importers Association, tells the Automobile Reporter: The Automobile Association made a letter to the First Vice President and said that both during the pricing by the Competition Council and in the light of the Minister's request to the Marketplace Headquarters for Car sales at two previous prices caused heavy losses to two car makers in the country. "Following the price guidelines issued by the Ministry of Finance to automobile companies has led to the weakening of the financial ability of automakers."
He adds: "We now have between 2 and 3,000 defective cars on the factory floor, partly due to a shortage of parts and car makers also want carmakers. "On the other hand, car makers are in financial trouble, so parts can't reach car makers."
Nemat Bakhsh adds: "There are two laws in this respect that, under Article 5 of the Fifth Schedule to Note 2 and Article 5, paragraph 2, if the State determines that the price of a commodity is lower than the actual price for any reason, it must render damages to that producer. »
The secretary of the Iranian Automobile Association said of the details of loan payments to automakers: "In a correspondence with the first vice president, there was talk of helping manufacturers lose, but that has not happened so far."
He continued: "There was talk in the headquarters of the economy to lend to carmakers, and last year it was given 6 trillion dollars to auto makers. At the end of March last year, the automakers were given $ 7 billion, which was quickly reached by the makers. But the remaining 7 trillion rials were not given and there were disputes over bank interest. "
He says: "Another way to cash in on auto makers is to sell surplus and unproductive cars. "But the property cannot be sold quickly and must be sold at an affordable price."
"One of the main reasons for the decline in automobile production is the provision of liquidity and this has to be resolved," he adds. When the loan was given to automakers, we had a growth in production and we were able to supply the necessary parts. "The reason for buying some of this surplus property is defensible by automakers, but in the meantime some cannot be defended and the matter must be addressed to the chief executives."
According to Automotive Worker, most auto industry activists believe that in such circumstances, the government is expected to pay for facilities or aid to auto makers in order to pay for car makers' claims and thus contribute to production boom. They argue that the government should not make the loss of car makers as public companies by making decisions such as selling cars to customers at previous prices.
