Joerg Schreiber, Chairman of the AEB AMC commented: “Double-digit growth on the Russian car market continues for the third month in a row, unabated by the arrival of the peak holiday season. It appears that, finally, the middle-class buyer has woken up, encouraged by a brighter outlook on the economy and embracing the package of purchase incentives put together by the government. The recent sales trend is great news and feeding the optimism that 2017 will indeed become a turn-around year for the industry”.
