Khodrocer Reporter Says: Iran economy has various active industries and
automotive industry is one of them. If this industry kept in good shape it can
also activate other industries as well. That’s because every vehicle is formed
by an average of 30 thousand parts production of which will involve multiple industries.
The strategic plan of the ministry of industry, mine and trade is set
that by the end of 1404 the total of 21 billion dollars worth of vehicle and
parts exported from Iran which includes 15 billion dollars just the vehicle
This plan was set while the predictions showed 2.2 billion worth of
vehicle export in the current year. The total vehicle production predicted in
the current year is 1.4 million units of light vehicles and 40 thousand of
The studies show that in the first 5 month of the
current year more than 1193 units of vehicles were exported including vehicles
such as SAIPA Pride, Saina and Quick, IKCO Peugeot Pars and Samand as well as one
Iran export target countries were Iraq, India,
China, Czech Republic, Romania, Guinea, Italy, France, UAE, Azerbaijan, Germany
and Belgium that one unit of SAIPA Quick was exported to China and one was
exported to Belgium. It seems that the one Quick sent to Belgium was so that
the Punch Powertrain Co. could test the new automatic transmissions on it.
Now the question is that even considering the
increase in variety of vehicle assembly in Iran and the emphasis of the ministry of industry, mine and trade on
export based productions, why this major drop in export rates are registered
and is there any hope to make the export target rate set for 1404?
"Targets set for 1404 from ministry of industry, mine and trade are
based on new automotive contracts and some news suggests that if 30 percent of
the productions of the new contracts are not exported, the foreign party of
that contract is going to be fined.” Said Amirhassan Kakaei in an interview
with Khodrocar journalist.
This automotive experts added: "Export does not only
need product to happen. This need series of processes and the most important condition
to it is proper political and commercial relations. As an instance, some
countries formed various groups through which economical trades are done in the
frame of political relations.”
"Vehicle purchase worldwide is done through leasing
and bank, therefore if an Iranian automaker wants to gain a popper position in
the market of a target country, it must first settle some suitable conditions
for the customers with the help of a local bank.” The expert added.
