The future of Dacia in Romania is a „bright one”, the president of the Board of Directors of the Renault Group, Jean-Dominique Senard said on Thursday in Mioveni, according to Agerpres.
„We are extremely proud, Mr. Prime Minister, to show you what Dacia is today, in this country. And I want to state very firmly that Dacia, for the Renault Group, has a very, very important future. It shows the path to the future of the auto industry and what is happening here, in this country, is a point of reference for us. I tell you very clearly, officially, that the future of Dacia in this country is bright,” said Jean-Dominique Senard, after a meeting with the Prime Minister of Romania, Nicolae Ciuca.
The representative of the French group emphasized that the development plans of the Dacia plants will materialize in the coming years.
„We have huge projects, and these plans will be materialized in the coming years. And it is a message of optimism, because mobility is essential for the future of the economy, and Dacia shows the way for future mobility,” Jean-Dominique Senard said.
On Thursday, Prime Minister Nicolae Ciuca visited the Dacia Industrial Platform in Mioveni, where he had a working meeting with the company’s management. The head of the Government showed that at the Dacia plants there are prospects for development both for the next ten years and for the period to come.
He emphasized that Dacia employees carry the name of Romania in more than 40 countries where the vehicles produced at Mioveni are exported, which is a source of pride. „The Romanian industry has, at the moment, a say both in Europe and in the world. The Romanian industry has consistency and has a future. Here, on this platform, 15,000 directly employed people work and there is also a collaboration that ensures (…) jobs for another 150,000 people,” the prime minister also said.
The head of the Government also showed that he noticed the car maker’s ability to adapt to the new environmental requirements of the European Union, which is reflected both in the intention to produce „green energy” and to launch new models with low emissions reduced. „I got off earlier from a car that is going to enter the production line at the beginning of next year and it is a hybrid car, it is a car that, for sure, we want to find as soon as possible in the car shows,” Nicolae Ciuca also mentioned.
