EU group protests China-model auto purchase list

EU group protests China-model auto purchase list

The European Chamber of Commerce in China says it is disappointed with a proposed list for official government auto purchases that includes only car models from Chinese automakers.
The EU business group said Monday that the list runs contrary to China's commitments to keep its markets open and may cut off access to sales of 1 millions vehicles a year.
It urged the government to revise the list to "include all cars that meet identified cost and engine size limits."
China's Ministry of Industry and Information Technology is seeking comment on the list before before making it final. It includes models from automakers such as BYD Autos, Chery Automobile Co. and FAW Corp. but none from foreign joint ventures.
