Business partnership

-Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation (Group) and the Company are likely to bolster collaboration in the area of small diesel engine technology for passenger cars and other vehicles. The two companies are said to be discussing plans that include establishing a joint-venture company and conducting a stock swap. Since last year, they have been carrying out a joint project to develop 0.9- to 1.9-liter diesel engines. This latest development in strengthening their ties is seen as part of Shanghai Automotive's initiative to enhance its passenger vehicle business. It is believed that Shanghai Automotive is intending to install a new 1.9-liter diesel engine, which it is developing with the company, on in its own-brand Roewe 550 that will be launched possibly by next year.
