According to the head of the State Duma Committee on Industry and Trade, Vladimir Gutenev, a bill on the localization of carrier vehicles is currently under consideration in the lower house of parliament. New amendments may be adopted due to the fact that the share of Chinese transport in Russia may soon reach 70 percent. At the same time, domestic carriers are in favor of localizing vehicles.

The new bill proposes the introduction of a minimum mandatory level of localization of vehicles involved in passenger transportation. At the same time, the authorities plan to avoid the concept of “localization” by comparing the new amendments with the point system used in public procurement.

According to Gutenev, Russia may introduce a cumulative number of points for performing technological operations or conditions on the territory of the country during the production of vehicles. Currently, the new bill has passed its first reading in the State Duma. The authors of the initiative are preparing to submit amendments to the relevant committee.

At the end of February, taxi aggregators turned to the Russian authorities for help in purchasing cars. Carriers proposed developing new state support measures.
