Coronovirus infection triggered an economic crisis around the world. Strongly enough this moment touched the Russian car industry. Therefore, the bus industry received additional development subsidies. According to the government’s plan, bus loading of the domestic auto industry will be increased to 100%.
According to the head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation Denis Manturov, such a decision will stimulate the economy, as well as increase the volume of modern transport in the regions. All citizens of the Russian Federation use public transport, therefore, support for the industry in question is mandatory.
Since the number of infected people is growing every day, the domestic auto industry will be involved in the production of ambulances. According to media reports, the state order for medical transport is expressed as a contract for 1200 cars. However, even this amount is not enough, so an additional purchase is planned from foreign colleagues.
The same Manturov assures that work on providing transport is ongoing. Soon the necessary equipment will arrive in every region of the country and will be surely implemented. As soon as the transport is ready, it will be immediately sent to the most needy corners of the country. This is not only a matter of economic feasibility, but also concern for the population.
For the period May-June, purchases will amount to 33.5 thousand cars. V. Putin ordered that not only purchases be made under state orders, but also conditions should be provided for drivers in the framework of car loans and car leases. Up to 15.5 million rubles were allocated for these areas.
To address the issue of purchasing “foreign limousines” during the period of coronavirus infection, the country's leader imposed a ban on their purchase. This is done with the circumstance that the excess financial resources do not go abroad, but spread and stimulate the economy.
