Khodrocar - It was a few days ago that Abdul Nasser Hemmati, the chairman of the Central Bank, criticized South Korea for the non-payment of oil money under the pretext of sanctions, and it was announced that he had proposed importing cars from the country instead of blocked dollars. . Although Hemmati's statement was not confirmed or denied, it is undoubtedly the best offer that can meet some of the demand in the current situation, while calming the rebellious car market.
Last year, however, the Automobile Importers' Association submitted a 7-point proposal to liberalize imports. In paragraph 5 of the proposal, imports from countries where Iran's financial resources are blocked were emphasized.
"Coinciding with US sanctions against Iran, Korean and Japanese companies active in Iran's auto industry have told their partner companies that Iran has a lot of financial resources and that Japan's flora does not have the ability to maintain that amount of funding. They are not the treasurer of Iran's financial resources, so they offered to pay for the maintenance or import of non-sanctioned goods, including from these countries into Iran.” Mehdi Dadfar, secretary of auto importers told khodrocar reporter.
"If this proposal is realized, there will be a good opportunity for companies active in the field of car imports to survive and survive, while the market will be able to be controlled and today we will not see the staggering prices of imported cars as well as domestic production.” He said.
"It proposed the import of hybrid vehicles, the import of public vehicles, the import of cars under $ 15,000, as well as the issuance of car import licenses based on smart tariffs. And high technology and low fuel consumption, lower tariffs, while controlling prices, the market was moving towards the use of new technologies, in which case the modernization of the public transport fleet, along with the survival of companies importing researchers At the same time, the blocked resources in foreign countries, whose non-profit harms the country, could become an opportunity for the economy.” He added.
"As the presence of Japanese, Korean, Chinese and even German brands in Iran encouraged them to cooperate and launch a production line in Iran, because the market has shown the level of interest and desire of customers, and in this situation, companies invest in the country.” He said.
"Undoubtedly, the implementation of the proposal to import cars from Korea instead of blocked financial resources can have positive effects on the car market and even the price of domestic cars.” He said.
Emphasizing that the probability of this proposal being implemented is very low, Dadfar said that the lobbying power of the nested layers of the state will never provide this opportunity unless it has a capable and resourceful manager to accept in the project management process whenever it prevents the project from continuing.
