Talks Over French Automotive Agreements

Talks Over French Automotive Agreements

France’s National Assembly President Claude Bartolone recently toured the facilities of Iranian carmaker Pars Khodro.  
“I’m confident that the cars, which will be produced at Pars Khodro, would be on par with the standards of France’s Renault,” IRNA quoted Bartolone as saying on Sept. 8.
“This will ensure a win-win agreement for both sides,” he added.
Bartolone noted that the nuclear deal between Iran and the West has paved the way for the country to bolster cooperation with the international community.
At the same event, Pars Khodro’s CEO Nasser Aqa-Mohammadi said, “Despite western-imposed sanctions, and upheavals faced by us in the past few years, we have recently experienced production growth.”
Aqa-Mohammadi added that in the past, both SAIPA and Pars Khodro have worked well with Renault in Iran.
According to SAIPA officials, 20,000 units of the Sandero Stepway, which was unveiled last week, are expected to be produced in Iran annually.
The car is expected to cost about 600 million rials ($17,150 at market exchange rate).
  Auto Part Talks
Iran Khodro’s subsidiary part makers and Peugeot Group also held a second joint meeting.
For the second consecutive year, SAPCO, the main automotive part supplier of IKCO, hosted the conference, local automotive website, Asre Khodro, reported.
The event aims to accelerate the process of Iran becoming an independent auto parts manufacturer and help forge new partnerships so that the quality of local car parts improves.
Scheduled for September 10-11, the conference is underway in Tehran and the French delegation toured the production lines of local manufacturers.

 Renault Pars to Host Parts Group
On September 10, Renault Pars, the local representative of French carmaker, announced it too would be hosting at least 70 representatives from 40 French car parts makers from FIVE (Fédération des Industries des Equipements pour Véhicules) as part of an explorative mission.
The French representatives will survey Iran’s auto parts industry and grounds for collaboration firsthand. They are also to provide consulting services to Iranian managers.
The company said: “Renault has assisted in deals with Azin Khodro and Faurecia for producing car seats and Fooman Pars and Bosal’s deal for the production of exhaust systems.”
