October Automotive Roundtable, October 13

– China’s Current Auto Sales Market – Motivations for Chinese Car Buyers –

Over the past years, China has become the key global Auto market for most international OEMs. Until 2015, China auto sales have been growing consistently and substantially and they have taken over global pole position for the past six years. However, China’s auto production and sales saw significantly slower growth in the first seven months of the year 2015. Due to the economic slowdown, fierce competition and purchase quota policies in first-tier cities, the China auto market is facing contractions for the first time. Hence, our October Automotive Roundtable will gather leading experts from the global automotive industry to discuss the current market trends, the situation and motivations for Chinese Car buyers and resulting implications for the future.
