  • 420 900 vehicles produced by Avtovaz in 2017 (increase by 3.8%), representing 70% of the total production in Russia
  • Growth prospects for 2018:  9%
  • Since January 1, 2015, the Renault Nissan Avtovaz alliance has set up its own purchasing system called ARNPO (Avtovaz Renault Nissan Purchasing Organization).
  • With ARNPO Samara’s plant has a unique purchasing policy. If subcontractors can work with any other factory in the world via France it is impossible to become a supplier of Avtovaz without passing ARNPO.
  • During the delegation of the Franco-Russian CCI, the purchasing department and the technical department of Avtovaz will explain the functioning and the specificities of the ARNPO system. They will also present the group’s new projects and future launches. Participants will be provided with information about components and technologies that Russian local  suppliers are not in position to provide.
  • An opening session before the delegation at Moscow office of Franco- Russian ICC is aimed to  give a comprehensive review of the Russian political situation, economy and current state of the car market.
