"Zaporizhia Automobile Building Plant announces the start of production of Groupe Renault cars for the local market. The project is being implemented at facilities in Zaporizhia and is a sign of the revival of the automotive industry in Ukraine," the statement said.
It is noted that ZAZ has been modernized to meet Groupe Renault's international quality standards: the Alliance Production Way system is now initiated at the plant.
"We are proud to implement this project which will create new jobs and promote the development of the domestic automotive industry. The localized assembly allows us to stay close to our customers and adapt the offer and service to market needs," ZAZ Chairman Mykola Yevdokymenko said.
As we reported earlier, in April 2020, industrial production in the EU countries showed the record-breaking decrease and reached the lowest levels in the last 25 years.
